The 1st bright sunny day of the year!

Thank the lord, the 1st real bright sunny day of the year! a great 19 degrees! I can here other MV forum members laughing at that statement, espcially the ones that live in warmer/sunny climates! 0600 hrs this morning, I'm seeing bikes, sports cars, racing cyclists, runners, 4x4 owners, classic car owners, horse riders, speed walkers and every other tom dick and harry fighting for their slice of the road! Also, mix in with that, crap roads, delivery drivers and pedestrians, I just have that slight feeling that there may be a few accidents on the road today! Certainly from a UK point of view, the future for great motorcycling in the South East of England is very bleak indeed. I just can't see it getting better !

ah the weather is lovely here.

contemplating getting the push bike out and going for a ride, may need an ambulance to get back home like but it's prefect weather for just bimbling around and relaxing.

absolutley lovely weather a few more dgrees warmer and it could stay like that all year for me to be happier than a happy thing.

You should move North mate,best roads,best brew stops,best chippys,best beer!
I must admit we've got some really fierce Police,North Wales,North Yorks and Derbyshire to name a few.
I'm just an hour away from the Lake District,Peak District,North Yorks,Yorkshire Dales and North Wales(a bit spoilt really).
Chin up ,keep smilin'
P.S.
My day wasn't a total loss,purchased a Brutale 910R today

ditto this morning nice and early in the SE, but maybe a bit further SE than Nicensleazy,as not encountered so much traffic

What i did have to do was queue up for my tankful of petrol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! strike in scotland refinery and queuing for petrol hundreds of miles south, dont those people panic

Bike now run in and next ride will be to Reddog for service, hope note as wet as F4INXS

Brit Biker with Triumphs and a love of Italians.

To be honest, thats the first ride out since I swapped over all the panels from the original Red/Silver, I think it might well be a bit of a pig to clean, but everyone I've spoken to on the subject says just clean with soap and water, no polish!
