    First time out

    I managed a quick run tonight after work as the sun was shining.
    Couldn’t believe the state of the roads with potholes, some would take you off the bike if you hit them!
    Hopefully these will be repaired for the summer but it was nice to blow the cobwebs away and get a blast.

    Thanks, it's all original plastics.
    Not bad for sliding each side on track!

    Looking surprisingly good Loupe I'm out this weekend too, sick of snatching the odd spin here and there over recent months in between rain and snow showers, I'm going for it regardless!

    Got out today in the sunshine, loads of bikes out (and some standing water!), tyres scrubbed in at last and getting used to the front wheel being in the air a lot

    Cheers Stuart, yep Mrs Mac came out, she's a top pillion so I can still get a shift on when I want too. Getting Ventura pannier set up soon (!) as we're taking a trip over to the IOM on it after the TT, need to test it out as concerned her hair dryer / make up etc etc might upset the turn in... will also need to max out the traction control too to stop the bugger wheelying every time I crack the throttle open

    Had a wee run to Oban today 240 miles of fun.
    Saw a biker down near Wulls place just at Lix Toll. Bike was trashed and lying about 30 metres from the biker who had lots of Medics around him on the deck.
    Hope he is ok.

    Tried to get a photo of the ferry but it was a bit too fast for my chubby fingers but I got a forum sticker in it.


    Enjoy the coming week lads and lassies the temp. is climbing.
