I have a s..t box dullsville for this time of year, not bothered how much the salt rots it, as it couldn't make it look any worse after all,
SV is tucked up in the dry, gets started weekly

Roll on summer ( at least the rain is warmer )

Same here, had an hour out which was cracking. Needed to make sure the brand-new battery and new air filter were OK, obviously

Well I had a brilliant ride out this morning with a bunch of mates, in the pouring rain and a 40knot sea breeze...... exciting to say the least! Once you're got all your kit on the rain really isn't an issue and if anything it did a brilliant job of washing all the salt away leaving the road nice and grippy, in a wet sort of way.....

Most day's my back let's me, tho those days are becoming much less than I'd like but that's life.

Might start looking for a driving instructor next year, it's getting that bad.....

I ride every Monday to Friday year round - except the last week or so.
Wasn't too cold this morning, realised my front brake is well due a strip down when my bike didn't fancy moving when I tried to wheel it out of the garage.


Looks like I'll be tinkering as soon as the seal kit arrives.
