I think you got the Pilot Road 3's on the wrong bike there . Seriously though, they're amazing tyres, they warm up very quick too, wish they made them to fit my Bonnie

Ha ha, yes, - I don't think they do them for bicycles. They do seem to be amazing - long lasting, grippy in the dry and great in the wet..... It shouldn't be possible to be so good at everything!

Yes, at Ducati Glasgow they told me these tyres were becoming popular as word has spread....and that they had complained to the Michelin rep that it would hit profits as they last three times longer and hence a lot less tyre sales in a season.

Temps hit 12 C here today - the Rideout season is back on! Yay! ... Unfortunately we have a day of rain forecast for tomorrow...but all we need now is a dry Sunday and we will be out again.

Did our usual Saturday cycle today .....

'If you go down in the woods today'.......

12c !!!

Glad to see the weather is turning for the better but 12c would be too cold for me, I know HUFU but I am about to go for a ride in 35c

Cheers Terry

Hi Terry, I had to take Sarah's bike for a service early this morning, it was 6 C . Having said that, our normal threshold for group rideouts is 10 C.

35 C would be too hot for me! - I like 15 - 25 C as ideal for rideouts and wearing leather kit .


(Edit 11/03/14..... This morning it was my bikes turn to go to the dealers ...it was 2.5 C when I set off with a frost on the grass......that's clear skies for you...mind you, it looks like it's going to be a beautiful day after the cold start).

'20 degrees! - preparing for summer!' - It sounds like summer has already arrived for you lucky people.

Is your bike on a boat in that pic?

Congrats on the new steed BTW, looks good - hope the forecast was wrong and you did manage to get out today.

Temps are definitely up now..........don't want to rub it in, but I managed to get out both yesterday and today - a few hundred miles covered!

Always love the first few rides of the new season, blows away the winter blues.

Anyway, please keep your awesome pictures and stories coming.

CeltRider.


Hi there, good to hear from you ..and great to hear you are getting back out again. It does seem that the weather has been a lot warmer down south ...... I saw on the news that temps were up at 19 C down on the south coast of England at the weekend .....We have some sunny days forecast for the next few days ...but only 10 C.

Still, it's nice to see some dry, clear skies...this was this evening around 6:00 pm.

Why was the big ZZR on a boat?

Clear skies today .... so managed to get out on the gixxer after work for a wee blast (although when I say 'blast' I am still running her in so trying to stick to 6500 rpm.

Felt good though ...if a tad cold ...

Out at the Glengoyne distillery at Dumgoyne on the A81.
