I spent about a week near Ipswitch years ago... nice area. Loved it there.

In the general area... possibly a bit northwest... there was a private estate with a steam-powered carousel, a small steam train ride (train was small, ride was quite a distance and went around the whole property) , and a locomotive museum.

Spent some time in Norwich, Cromer, Newmarket, Bury St. Edmunds, Cambridge, Birmingham, many other towns and villages in the area, and of course, London.... Spent a day in Greenwich visiting the observatory and museums there. Arguably the best month of my adult life! Every day was a new adventure.

Did you get to ride any bikes whilst over here?

My brother in law (ex pro jump jockey) works for the Godolphin racing stables in Newmarket.

No riding.

I spent two weeks exploring London at the invite of a British friend met here in the US who went home visiting her family. Used the tube and trains to get around. She had "connections" in London and got us into the most incredible upscale invite-only party held at Scala in King's Cross. It was a celebrity costume party. Our picture was taken by a magazine photographer who liked our costumes and was intrigued that I was from the States so I might have even had some of my own "15 minutes of fame". (If photo was used, likely I was airbrushed out... Cheryle was the stunner.) :ROFLOL

I did visit Newmarket as well. Funny that you mentioned horses... my time in the Midlands was spent with a friend from the US who was so into horses she left here to follow her aspirations there. She went through all the certifications and eventually taught dressage and jumping at a ritzy private school. (Did you know you need to pass a difficult test just to be authorized to muck out a stall?) For that part of the trip I was chauffeured around the Midlands in a Volvo Estate (estate = station wagon in the US).

I hope to get back to England someday... a month there wasn't long enough.

(Apologies for the thread hijack Jimmy!)

Speaking of thoroughbreds, I was admiring MarkT for hanging with two different women in a foreign country in the same month! Here all I thought he did back in the day was immerse himself in the Yamaha way!

Does anyone know what those rear motor mount / rubber and metal cases guides are called? I tried ebay search of Yamaha DT360 mount mounts, motor mount bushings, and case guides with no luck. Is there a specific name or part number. I found a couple used ones but was hope someone making aftermarket ones. Thoughts ?
Thanks so much for your help !!
