Took advantage of the dry weather today here in central Scotland (Wed 9th Jan) and headed out a short 55 mile run, there was sunshine at first then it got dull/overcast as I drove off, typical. The bikes heated grips were switched on quickly as it was quite chilly.
Bike stored away during the winter months;
Checked the usual tyre pressures, engine oil sump bolt tightness, a quick WD40 wipe over;
Parked out on the street ready for the off;
Rode to Doune, stopped off at the 'Sir David Stirling' Memorial site;
As I approached Callander the rain started, so I back-tracked and rode to Stirling for a coffee etc;
The centre of Stirling;
A few other local bikes parked up;
As the light was starting to fade I took a short run to Phoenix Honda based at Grangemouth, Falkirk, my local Honda motorcycle dealer;
On the ride home the sunset was beautiful, my (basic camera) didn't really pick it up to well, but lovely to look at;
Nice to get out, looking forward to the spring kicking in!
