Have you tried the new Drafts feature yet? I just lost a long message today and learned my lesson. It is a good idea to save a draft of any long post you are writing. You can then just keep writing and keep saving a draft, knowing you have a backup if there is a glitch. The draft is automatically deleted when you post the message.

My very first Douglas

Sir Rick

Three or four weeks ago, I purchased my first Douglas motorcycle.

She's a 1947 T35.

Still needs a wee bit of work prior to taking her for a decent ride.
3rd gear is not going far enough beck into the dogs to drive it properly, but 4th gear goes completely all the way in. Both on same fork, 3rd backwards, and 4th forwards,

Anyway, my first post in here, and I will try and attach a photo of how she looks.


Very nice machine, but beware of that front mudguard - it is mounted too low, and the wheel will probably jam into it on hitting large bumps. Originally, Mk1 and 3 machines had fixed valanced mudguards, mounted high. A lot of owners didn't like that arrangement, so Mk4&5 machines had the mudguard moving with the wheel ( but the mountings were prone to premature wear).
