Essential journey

Post by canaletto5 »

Went out on the GS750 today. Freezing but sunny and dry.

A blast around the Derbyshire hills is better than a vaccine :lol: (Ahem, not really but I feel a lot better)

I'm fed up cleaning the crap off my bike after every ride. Not been out since before christmas - and I'm not in a rush to get out again, until the roads dry properly. Bike looks nice though :)

Sick of cleaning the crud off my bikes too, and the plod in Lincolnshire have said they'll stop and possibly fine anyone on a motorbike, if they can't provide a valid reason for being out. So with that in mind and knowing my luck, :roll: I daren't risk it right now.
It's given me a good reason to get out on the pushbike though (legally allowed) and get fit, and lose some weight, almost 2 stone up to now.(thanks for the inspiration Richard ;) you git )
Did a two hour ride in the sunshine this morning, through Grimsby and Cleethorpes to Humberstone fitties, (look it up, really interesting) and got home knackered, but feeling great :P
Look, my paintwork hasn't got "Fish scales" :x they're "Dragon scales" right!!! However, after some thought, I will accept "Black Marlin" or "Swordfish", but definitely not "Haddock" or "Cod".

That's after the ride which shows how dry the roads were today. Pis*ing down again for the rest of the week :roll:

Nah, just like to get out on my favorite routes and keep making them longer if the mood takes me.

I almost like that with the non standard side panels.
You flogging it Kev?
I've a few Yorkshire Groats spare from the Invaders sale and I could reclassify meself as a partial 4 banger so it'd fit in with the triples. Apparently it's all the rage nowadays. :roll:
I won't have the 'op' though.High pitched talking's not me, I'm not retraining at my age......

I do have 'previous' with the GSX14.

Fartywarty (see his ebay moniker) seems to be getting away with it, although 2 cylinders is as much as he can handle at his age I suppose. :?

If you'd got a proper one, they wouldn't catch you.

That's what friends are for.

Trump said that didn't he? Probably rode his 'bike' more than 500 yards though.
