Hurricane Matthew drizzles on Charleston | Porsche Cayenne Driving Lesson6m05s

Hurricane Matthew drizzles on Charleston | Porsche Cayenne Driving Lesson

The morning after Hurricane Matthew has blown it's way through the South Carolinas, it's time for a quick driving lessons for eldest Son and an attempt to goto the beach for a dog walk (Blocked by the Plod). The storm had dissipated greatly by the time it had got to us up here, and was just one big almighty rain storm, so not that much wind damage but lots of storm tide and flooding damage. Driving from Mount Pleasant, across the IOP Connector and then back up to Mount Pleasant and across to Put Bridge (that connects Mount Pleasant to Sullivans Island) for a quick stroll in the brisk blowy Charleston Harbour Breezes.

Matthew is fat, grumpy and very angry. Hurricane Matthew of course, is due here in two days so I decided it was a good opportunity to move the old Trumpet into the house to sit out the stormy anger and also a good chance go test out the new helmet cam. Microphone was a complete and utter ballsup. But, have learnt something to fix it next time.

It's Alive! Muwahahahahaaaaa Cleaning out the garage and had to start up the bike to move it, which obviously meant a quick little test ride around the block. Wearing Google Glass to record video so quality and sound is shockingly bad. #getoverit http://www.motolimey.com/tiberius-lives-aka-rebirth-1998-triumph-daytona-955i-triple-sportsbike

So... taking prevarication to new levels... after owning this (non-running) bike for three years and it living in a storage lockup for the entire time, moving it from Virginia to South Carolina to California.... I finally get around to trying to get it running. The resurrection of Tiberius the Trumpet is imminent...

Porsche #5 | Looking for a 911 Mechanic Part 2 | Finding one in Charleston

So, I found a small specialist Porsche Mechanic. I definitely need a *pro* to build the '78 911SC Targa engine... because my school boy mechanic skills are not worthy. He seems like a sound bloke. But, lets leave the video review until I have some real feedback.... He's coming to see the Targa on Saturday, maybe will be scared by the amount of work neded ;)

The Targa has been quietly hibernating for the last 6 weeks, since moving into my garage. After spending over ten years in a deep coma, at the back of the previous owners dark, dusty, insect and critter filled barn I think a little hibernate was in order. Mitigating the shock and trauma of seeing daylight. But now it's time to go and find a mechanic... a Porsche Mechanic who can help me with the initial heavy lifting involved in doing a full rebuild and inspection. Way beyond my limits. So, I found this local bloke and decided to go and check out his garage... it was shut. Nuff said. But I videoed it anyway. *SIGH* http://www.motolimey.com/searching-porsche-911-mechanic-charleston-sc

Tiberius the Trumpet has sat in storage for years... then I bought him in 2010 and got him running. Just for a few days, before he broke down (rubber had corroded on an old fuel injector pipe). Back in storage again while I worked abroad. Fast forward to 2013 and he's dragged out of storage to move across country to California and (hopefully) to get resurrected.
