Yep, that was definately me. I went through Bingham as it would have been easier to stop and pump the forks up if they collapsed 😛
The drain tap was designed so you can add oil to a measure when filling up. Whilst nice in theory, carrying a bottle in a rucksack is hardly a hassle and, as you say, blanking off or wiring the tap closed would be the preferred option to avoid a repeat performance.
I love the absence of mechanical fuss with 2 strokes and the Scott certainly doesn’t diasappoint. Cruising the Scott back from the meet at 50-60 was very relaxing and it pulls lovely in 3rd from 30 so relatively fuss free through the villages. Much nicer than my dads old Speedtwin and just as comfy despite the solid back end. Even the front brake appears to work OK now!
