    Got a quick 10/15 mile blast yesterday to make sure everything's ok before it's 1st MOT this Saturday . Fired up 1st time after hibernating for 6 and half months. You forget how quick these bikes are , glad to be back out now , fingers crossed for a good and long summer.

    Got out myself last night. Dry roads are Soo nice. Takes a bit to get your head around the power again

    Not my first ride, but it was the first Saturday blast. On such a warm day.

    By blast I mean, sat in traffic, in 50 zones, sweating my nuts off, only to manage to then find rain...the joys of London.

    I did get some decent flowing fast road time on the A272 and A286.

    Hope everyone got out there today!

    Random shot as I sat eating McFlurry

    +1 on that Corky. Been experimenting with 2nd and 3rd on roads I normally do in 3rd and 4th. I'd forgotten what a nutter the bike is...

    It is endlessly entertaining riding in a gear or two lower than you otherwise normally would purely to exploit the upper echelons of the rev range

    I like to not go any higher than 2nd gear.
