    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Seeing as the forecast for further south, where I was supposed to be heading for a rally, was absolutely dire for a weekend under canvas, I bottled it and stayed north . . . . . . where there was a little less rain forecast. As I had the day off and a bike fully fuelled, I thought a ride was in...

    Arranged to meet Cabbage at Hirwaun to have a run out, with no real plan in mind. The Tenere was/is up for sale, but truth be known, I would rather keep it, its purely for financial reasons I was going to sell. Reality is its "robbing Peter to pay Paul". So as Ive always said, "A bike has to...
