Took Libby out on the SV for the first time today...




She loved it, "best thing ever" apparently

Brilliant!

I remember taking my two out for their first rides on the SV 2 or 3 years ago. They're regular pillion riders now at just coming up to 16. They're looking to get their tests done and bikes bought next year when they turn 17.

Sv passed its MOT today, so on the way home I did a few roundabouts to remind me what fun it was to ride.

First ride since April 2016.

Poor thing needs some TLC

Had the RR go at the EAR 2016 Meat Run, then was doing lots of cycling. Bike got fixed, but couldn't be bothered to ride it.

2017 started like this

Wife had a big op in Jan, so i was running the house for 2 months

Then my Mum got taken into care, after having a fall in March, then stripping out my kitchen for the new one, clearing my mum's house & selling it, plus 3 overseas trips with work.

By August I was completely mentally & physically exhausted. No time or enthusiasm for anything

Even cycling, I did less than 1000 miles

It was an anus horiblus, great at work, but home life was ****
