Had to make a post just so there's a new thread because there's no sign of life here.
Anyway, took New Toy out on Sunday for a tool around the Derbyshire hills. Quite a few bikes in Matlock but not many on the open road. Saw a red and white RU heading north up the A6 early/mid afternoon. Anyone here?
Had a good 100 mile run - Via Gellia, Cat & Fiddle etc. Got held up by a Porker Boxster over the Cat. His lines through the bends weren't bad but he didn't use them to gain corner speed.
Looks like next weekend is going to be crap for two wheels or four so I guess the hibernation isn't over. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

I'm still hibernating for the moment. Still doing little jobs on the old crate. Got to do a bit of polishing on the shiney bits. I've been to Beverley today and saw quite a few bikes on route. Unfortunately for some of them it peed it down on the way home and I saw a couple getting soaked. There's still salt on the roads in our neck of the woods and like you say the weather is going to change again next week. The beast from the East is making a comeback. mad

If I were you I'd book another week. The beast from the East is heading back our way. You'll be in for a bit of a shock after having endured all that tropical heat. Poor things big grin
