Hello - newbie here. I am Chris from England. I recognise a few names on here from other forums - small world isn't it? I ride a Honda cb1300/Charnwood Royale. I have been riding outfits for about 21 years now. The chairs I have had have been a Hedingham XL, 2 x Merlin F2's, a ESZ RX4 and now the Charnwood. I swapped the last Merlin for the Royale as my wife's hips did not like the footrest postion on the 1300 and fancied a nice comfy seat in the sidecar. So the Merlin had to go to a nice home the other side of England. I'll post a picture when I figure out how to do it!

Hi Chris,

Hi Guys,

Daft little bit of good old English Banter going on there I see .. I have to keep very quiet .. I was in the Navy!

As for all this warm Sunny Spain stuff .. we had a Cloud yesterday, no really! I looked up and there it was .. just sitting on a hill .. a real bloomin Cloud, I almost fell off the Sunbed!

Off out for a little spin on the Rig today .. nice 300 miler down the Med coast to visit a buddy (Former RAF Embarassed ) and back. Just me .. so I might get the chair up on the LEFT handers .. as ever Crazy Brits!

Stay Safe Guys Wink Trev (Tango Papa the Old Polar Bear in Spain)

Keith - it was a private sale but Len Tempest is the importer for EZS stuff. See the Fed site or Outlook for Len's number.
