ThumbsUp I'm back on the road!

Post  R2D2 on Mon Jun 02 2014, 17:28

So much for "the bike will need a fair bit of TLC before she's back on the road"... I had a quiet day at work so I sorted some insurance online, slipped off at lunchtime and took her for an MOT. Just to figure out what it needed, you know?

Well she sailed through, not even an advisory - tough as old boots, these bikes, aren't they!? - so I popped into the Post Office on the way home and bought a tax disc too. And then, as I was all legal, took about a 70 mile detour to go the long way home. Now I'm all sorted for what's left of the summer! I feel really rusty on the bike but it's starting to come back to me. Not sure I'm comfy enough for a last-minute dash to Bishop's Castle, unfortunately.

Leathers are still a squeeze though - no more pies for a while!  sad

Haha I thought you might be!

I'm just annoyed with myself for not doing it sooner. Especially now I'm old and it's a lot cheaper to keep the bike and the car both insured Smile

Hate think what you classify me then  Wink 

That's excellent news. Stretch those leathers, think there is a space still going with Greencat and there's a bunch of us invading from the south on Friday you welcome to join us.

Ahhh, umm we'd have passed there by then, but Weasley might be going that way - think he mentioned the time and route he was taking, he leaving later in the afternoon.
Be good to see you again, hope you can make it.

Yes, there is a space still available!

And if you tag along with Weasel I've promised to have a pint waiting for him when he gets to BC. So it would be rude to not offer you the same  Very Happy

Would it help if I said we are having regular bog breaks for the pensioners & a few stops for the Ducati drink problem? violet-lol
