Default Blowing off the cobwebs!

Who else got out yesterday for the first time this year??? Stretchie took the Bird out last weekend, but yesterday was my first time out with him since October and I haven't had that much fun for ages!

Beautiful day, top company thanks to Gid and Mrs. Gid and all topped off with a meal and pub quiz in the local!

Can't beat it


Gid, yes, Stretchie took us home through the twisties AND along the ring road for the roundabouts....woo hoo!!!

It was Fantastic and not normally Summer riders....but after the off on the Blade last Year, Dan didn't get enough miles in on this bike to get out in the bad weather. In the past he'd ride through anything.

So not only did Stretchie get out on his BB and have a meal, but you blew off his cobwebs as well?

Lovely here in Aber yesterday, I had a great time watching all the bikes ride into town while waiting for a mate, even got a nod and a smile off one which cheered me up. Nothing worse than watching lots of bikers out and about in glorious sunshine and not being able to join them but still fab to watch! Lots of shiny-just-out-of-storage bikes too, very nice

No he didn't, we got back and had just enough light left to give the dogs a good walk......SO...............

He took it to work this morning and it will currently be sat in the sun in the car park with little shiney patches in between the filth....lol

Excellent work Gid!

Yeah, the bike can shift and what you saw yesterday was Dan only taking it to about 5000rpm. I think it red lines at 15000!
