Welcome Butch,

We had a Triumph Tiger 90 ahhhhh the summer of 1975. Queue's for the River Severn crossings, we rode slowly past and then off to the Welsh border :-)
Hope you get on OK with your layout.

Cheers - J
I make as much as I can myself and try to find ways of not spending too much money.

Been thinking about this again. Without changing the layout or increasing my base board size I can reduce my incline by half. I only have the two inclines in the layout and they are in the same direction - fore and aft. My baseboard is currently level. I can angle the base board by half the lift ... this would have it raised at the front by approx one inch. Not so much that it would look too weird surely?

I'm going to be setting up a simple loop on it to test so I can check easily enough if this would do it.

I'm going to continue this conversation in the baseboard section.
