Depends on the sizes of the ports. I don't imagine blanking a port off altogether would be beneficial.

Well, I'm not Kev, but it appears to be an early 1930s ES2 with a megaphone and tacho on it, and the lights taken off. (By the late 30s, they had spring heels, IIRC.)

Scotts, after all, had 2 into 1 zorsts as standard for decades (and I think the Silks continued that).

I was referring to the thousands of "I ran out of road and went off the outside of the corner" crashes.

Yeah, it's this expectation that you or someone else in the group will crash, even offroad where it's easier to, that gets me.

I'd rather be by myself and know I ride so as not to crash.
