So I shall do my ride report and put all you others to shame.
Skipped off work for a few days to pick up some Moffat Toffee, and meet up with TM.
Leicester to Biggar up the middle of the country.
Matlock was heaving and I didn't stay long. Also too many scooters and it was difficult to breathe what with all the two stroke.
North and West and East and North until I got to Biggar.
Bit of Peak District, bit of Yorkshire dales and a bit of lake district, you get the idea. Took around 8 hours and 350 miles.
Bike porn and V1k
Steak, beer, sleep go for ride around Scotland.
I have absolutely, entirely and totally no idea where we went.
I did recognise some roads and places from Moffat NVM a few years ago but otherwise I am in the dark.
Took all day and around 200 miles.
Bike porn, scenery porn, and a V1k
Curry, beer, sleep.
Took around 5 hours and just under 300 miles.
Important points to note.
The Rocket 3 is proper.
The more we rode the more I learned about it and the better it got.
I think in the deepest darkest reaches of his soul TM will admit to being surprised how capable it was, I know I was! I knew it was good but not this good.
Handles like a dream. It was very comfortable and capable over 90% of the roads we rode on.
Not great but not bad on 5% of the roads.
Uncomfortable and slightly tricky on the remaining 5%.
I will take that.
TM kept throwing stones at me and I didn't like that.
Moffat Toffee is still amazing.
The bike was a talking point whenever and wherever we stopped.
I am in love and I take back all negative comments about red bikes. Except for mk1 650s they are a disgrace.
