I dont mind a hijack lads
Technically speaking I'm hijacking my own thread here. :D
I rode to work today on my Yamaha with a job at Portsmouth Dockyard, I have some large mats to makethat are very high. Luckily I wont be involved with fitting them.
Then after that some excitement. I'm fed up with the Yamaha, uncomfortable, I had a miserable ride back from Ireland. The rain was like a hose pipe in my face without my screen. So I've sold it and bought a cheap Honda Deauville. Much better. Still something I dont mind leaving behind at an Airport.

Back at my usual burger wagon, James was thinking it was about time the Dutch Rally was on again :D

Met up with the guys heading over on the ferry, good night after my beer now recovering with a coffee.

Hi Steve,
have a good one!

I've got Betsy up and running again, after the mag chain incident, and look forward to the weekend to ride her out!

After a couple of hours riding yesterday morning we arrived at our first stop for lunch and again this year with Maria as passenger.

The building we stopped at looked unassuming.

But inside had a private collection of mainly a American classic bikes.
