I was on my way home tonight following a bike through dense traffic and realised it was an F3 800 exactly the same as mine - black and white

Not so exclusive anymore :f4:

Hey Rob! it was me. I assume thats your daily commute? I was running about 45 minutes later than usual which is probably why we have not seen each other before. Where do you commute to/from? So far yours is the only one ive seen since i got it and that was in June.

Hi
I work in Tooting SW London - I live in Orsett Village.
I don't have set hours so I leave at various times.
The traffic has been horrible since the kids went back to school!
I was going to follow you but there was no way I could keep up - loony! (I tried for about 2 seconds)

I noticed that you had more insects stuck on her than there are in a botanical garden:)

Orsett Village - I know it. My wifes grandad lives in Bulphan. you may or may not know him, he has an airfield in his back garden!! Controversial chap to say the least. nice old boy though.
yeah the traffic was lovely for 6 weeks but to be honest most of the problems come from the amount of dumper trucks heading into town in the morning. its getting ridiculous.

I've put 5k on mine now. Ive noticed that it gets though bulbs quite quickly (front and back) and a few of my fairing bolts have come out, otherwise its not a bad bike. Although my sprag clutch is slowly on the way out.

be good to meet up for a ride one day - i live in South Woodham so on the way to Burnham Bends if your ever heading down that way...

Sounds like an idea but I'm a slow old fart!

Be careful on A13, I just missed an unmarked police bike tonight. He must have had bigger fish to fry, I turned off at Grays and saw him go past with his lights going.

funny you should say that. got pulled over! wasnt unmarked but they are doing an operation down the A13 all this week. Got done for filtering too fast. hopefully it will be the Ride course, otherwise 3 points £100 fine :-(
