  1. No not that 180 but it's been 180 days since i last rode a bike so today I needed to put that right. @Slowlycatchymonkey said the weather was going to be fab but it bloody wasn't when I left home at 11.30 am , i couldn't see in front of my face and it didn't get any better for a while.............. Anyway, perhaps her forecast was right because as I got nearer to her manor the sun started to poke it's head through the fog. By time I got to Chew Valley lake it was lovely............ and the various birdies were enjoying it as well................... I rode up over the Mendip hills and down through the old rode into Wells where it was starting to get positively balmy. From there I rode on to Shepton Mallet where I stopped to have a gander at the old prison, I have actually been in there about 38 years ago but not as a guest of her majesty you understand............ From there I took the Frome road but stpped at Doulting to have a sandwich and a coffee from my flask . While I was there I got a phone call from my mate Big Tone and we agreed to meet up for a coffee at Farrington Farm. I stopped to say hello to this lot on the way in ............. and then we sat in a strange sort of hobbit house for our coffee, Tone is one big hobbit at 6' 4'' tall From there it was a short 18 miles back home . It was great to be out riding again and I may get to repeat the exercise again on Saturday

  6. I have a cheap chinese ebay heated gilet...its stopped working. I asked my OH if his mate at work could have a look as hes an electrician and has fixed stuff in the past. Here is tge resulting 'fix'. Unable to get it to work from the actual button on the garment he, and my OH bypassed that and put another, shall we say switch on it. Its now off or on by that i mean freeze to death or incinerate but the switch is so small i doubt that you can see it in this picture.....

  8. Good run on the 650 again today and it ran like a swiss watch, It was a bit cold this morning with lots of ice about but the heated grips and jacket kept me warm. Very wet and slippery on the trails as usual for this time of the year. It was a pretty uneventful day other than me getting pulled by the plod on the way home because he thought i had no number plate fitted once he could see i did have one fitted he then booked me for it being too small and incorrectly fitted. Probably the first time I've been pulled over for about 15 years but it didn't spoil my day. I was very polite to him and turned on the cheeky Freddy charm i'll see what comes through the post in the next week or two to see if it worked. And the boy past his driving test today so i'm a happy man Only took 2 photos all day When i took my phone out of my pocket to take this photo my boy rang to say he'd passed his test a few seconds earlier or later and i wouldn't have know until i got home

  17. I was knocking out some parking signs on KeySIGN software and had to use the Sign and Sub plate function which lets you choose the upper sign, gives a choice of lower plates and that you can put on a backing board for neatness. Saw this upper sign as I was scrolling down and realised you can edit the lower part.

  27. Above there’s a video for the ambiance. someone let a Jack Russel sort of dog loose, and he was running around like an arrrow all over the place, managed to take a shot of him as he’s branding a monument It is a pretty place: Felt like eating something, but the local restaurant was pretty full, and didn’t feel like being in a closed space with lots of people, so rode off to meet Sofia for lunch. The road heading out, about to get on it on the white Thruxton is a brazilian lady wearing the tightest “look at my butt” pants ever, you can even see the roundness from here Traffic heading out was pretty silly and two bikes went down on the single corner with a little water running across the tarmac, so I decided to opt for the quiet and slower way out: Back on tarmac, and you can see why people like to scratch on these roads: Passed a couple of really pretty small towns, but didn’t stop for pictures, too much hassle with sunday lunch crowd arriving at scenic locations. 20 minutes later, and I stop on a cafe and order a pair of sandwiches for Sofia’s arrival: No more pictures as the traffic turned to sunday afternoon and that means annoying and slow, so went home.

  30. One vest, two merino wool layers, one thermoball jacket, touring trousers, my biggest thickest thermal motorcycle jacket and then a sub zero snowmobile suit that did not want to zip up over the top of that lot, merino wool gloves with lobster claw mitts and a neck tube so thick my face felt like it was being squeezed out the front of the helmet like toothpaste from a tube. So many layers I couldnt bend but no way the cold was going to stop me taking the full stolen 3 hours out. It didnt need to, turned the key, the lights flashed on briefly and then nothing.. just nothing, dead as a dodo. Here’s todays ride pic, I sat on a bike, the end, may as well load it in a van and take it for a drive then

  33. Indeed. I got my hands on a Huawei notebook, SSD with Ryzen processor, it was the best deal around. Slightly heavier than my old tablet but much more functional for vids and transfering massive HD files. Also means I can finally access my back catalogue of photos again, so will be spamming you guys with KTM pics

  38. The Bandit and the 9T’s insurance lapsed so I was taking the opportunity to try and get all the insurance dates in alignment (so its only one painful day searching for insurance) and that only left the Mutt which I was happy enough with for a short time knowing Id be back in Spain last Sunday.. or not, damn you RyanAir Mr Slowly wheeled out his F800 for me to take but after checking the insurance Im not on it. By that point I was about 500 degrees and had to disrobe before permanent metabolic damage occurred and pretty pissed off t’boot so now Im eating chocolate and wasting time on the internet before I have to take the dog to the vets. Hmmph
