    Today, giving Sarah's 750 a run ..... up on the A819, snow on the hills, salt on the roads, cold at 5C but clear blue sky and still good fun. I reckon though that today was probably the last run of the year before winter really starts to bite .....

    Likely on the lagging strand . . .
    Glad to see you are still doing it!

    I just parked my daily driver, put the battery on the charger, and pulled the insurance for the winter *sigh*

    It's the worst time of year - when you know you have had your last ride and winter lies ahead, spring being a long four month's away. I have been thinking each week for the last 3 weeks that it was the last run but we have had three bright dry Sunday's in a row (although the temps have been steadily falling each time).
    Yesterday was the first time that the roads were covered in salt ..... as you can see from my salty rear tyre yesterday, filling up at The Green Welly, Tyndrum

    I have to admit though, when it gets to the end of the riding season part of me is slightly relieved to have made it through another without getting maimed, killed or banned. :deal

    Sunday before last - out with Garry and Mike, we came up behind a police car going up Glen Ogle so pulled over for a bit to let it clear off ahead rather than crawl along behind it through the great bends on the A85..

    Low temps meant wet roads stayed wet most of the day despite no rain ...

    Hi mate.

    So pleasant to see you on road again. I am really impressed to see how your bikes are perfectly clean...

    My wheels come back soon in Scotland ;)
