Since she came under my tender care I'd kept a trip record of the miles I've done on Nessie, and today we went over the 1K mark (bottom figure).

Not much by XRV standards, but all the same it felt like a milestone to me.

Went out on a short ride today. Chris came round on his new Transalp. He'd been thinking of calling the bike Hamish, to reflect the fact that the bike was hijacked from Scotland. But on arriving today he said ' I've decided to call him Brian. Every time I feel the urge to go fast, he just tells me 'Hey man, what's the rush?' (true Magic Roundabout devotees will understand this :D) . Chris's main motivation in going for the TA was the sure and certain knowledge that continuing to ride everywhere on the blade was going to lead to either licence or life annihilati on. Now he is truly loving the leisurely pace that he feels the TA encourages.

All I know is that Nessie has never felt any need to hurry :thumbup:
