    Another reason for not having an 'extended swingarm'...... if you slip off the back at least you don't land on the tyre! :eek1 :-

    The 'green meanie' is looking good bubu ...glad to see you are getting out .... the weather here is still atrocious for the time of year ...but Sarah and I did manage to get out for a couple of short rides at the weekend.... so it is gradually improving ..we are now starting to see double figure temps .... so the rain is getting warmer! :D......

    Between periods of rain ....

    leaving Glasgow on the A82 ..... race!

    The Gartocharn to Drymen section of the A811 is pretty 'bendy'..... the good news is they have just resurfaced a lot of it with plenty of Shellgrip on the bends ...

    Stopped at the Hillfoot Café for an ice cream on the way home ...so we could at least pretend it was 'summer'....:D... this place has been making the best ice cream for as long as I can remember ....

    Luckily the latest gixxers come with a 'cone holder' as standard ........ Good old Suzuki - f*ck traction control and ABS - here, have an awesome cone holder! :D

    ..and before anyone mentions - 'What, no flake!?' ..... remember we live in an era of 'austerity' now.:wink: ...... before the 'Credit Crunch' it was 'flakes all round' and sometimes two flakes! :eek1 - the decadence!... but it couldn't last forever *sigh* :D
