I like the silhouette of the tree against the sky there. It really stands out in sharp relief.

Not really in the right area but wanted to try and make sure Kenzie sees it. https://www.manchestereveningnews.co...mments-wrapper

Yeah, that's the one. Will be up there in June.

A few shots from our trip to the Peaks

We did make it to Bleaklow too

If anyone has been up there, you'll realise how close they came to clearing the top of the hill.

Sorry for not editing myself out of the first one, but I took the 360 camera to Bleaklow too.

The 360 camera is very cool. Hope the holiday was good and relatively rain free.

We were very lucky with the weather. It rained a bit as we got there (after we'd set up the tent) and on the morning we were leaving, again it stopped just before we packed up. Would definitely go back as there is a lot more to see in the area.

Had a shot of a Super Duke R 1390 today, while my Street Triple was in for a service.





I've lusted after these for years. It was a bit disappointing to be honest!

It is so vibey! I'm well used to V twins but this is worse than my SV and Dorsoduro were by a long way. Low revs, high revs, the whole bike is shaking. I'd expect a lot of numbness on long rides. I was concerned for the brake reservoir, it was shaking around that much. The tank feels very angular where my legs grip it and was getting sore quite quickly.

The power is bonkers, feels like too much torque for a bike to have! A lot of fun to play with. Weight and handling felt surprisingly light.

As I was testing out the rev range it seemed to be hitting a limiter and wouldn't rev past 6/7k rpm. Thought it was anti-wheelie at first but the front wasn't coming up at all. Surely not a rev limiter on a demo bike?

Then the engine light came on and it showed a few errors. Seemed to go into limp mode after that with limited power. So back to the dealer. This was only about 20 minutes into the test ride.



I'm glad I tried it, but it's definitely not the bike for me. The vibration and comfort are a deal breaker. The quickshifter wasn't nearly as smooth as my bike, the dash interface not as slick either.

Never meet your heros

Not my cup of tea either. Also I've not heard great things about the reliability and build quality of KTM's

Nice night for a cycle






I fitted a little bar end mirror. It really helps on the road knowing what is coming up behind. I normally cycle on the pavement and cycle paths but didn't feel so unsafe on the road with the mirror.
