Well 'Hallelujah'! - Spring arrived at the weekend....kinda - not nice enough to organise a full ride-out (rain was forecast yesterday) ..but nice enough to snatch a couple of hours out yesterday afternoon...and damn! it felt good ....so nice to hear the Yoshis howl again and feel that lunge forward with every twist of the wrist.
I was like a gixxer junkie getting a first 'fix' after a long, long period of 'cold turkey'.

'Welcome back to butter' moments.


Yesterday afternoon :-

The weather this 'spring' has been dreadful...this was a rare treat to get out for a couple of hours. We haven't started our normal ride-outs yet ...normally we would have started a month ago.

Hi Mark...I was planning on organising a full day ride-out but the forecast changed on Sat to show rain Sunday afternoon so I binned the idea...then it brightened up on the Sunday afternoon so it was a last minute thing, just going for a quick blast on my own.
I will be sure to text you when we are out properly ..look forward to seeing you and Charlie out on some runs again.

Good to see you back out there John. And the Gixxer.
I've started my daily commuting two weeks ago, just had enough of this winter. It's still around 0C in the morning, but with the rain gear (which I need anyway most of the time ) it's warm and cosy.


Oh yeah, I promised you some pictures from the Toy Run in Maui.
Here you go then!
There were of course mostly Harleys, but as I said there's also a big sports bike scene on Maui. With some, well... special bikes...

Nice HRC Honda


Pretty standard R1


The new PS2 from Aprilia


This one's for Sb


Try to get this through the MOT...


Nice Curves...


Some of the very nice guys of the "Sons of Hawai'i" MC Chapter Maui

Cheers...some impressive looking bikes there! ..although I am not a fan of the 'extended swingarm' feature ...must play havoc with the bike's handling ..which surely is what sportsbikes are all about? '
