First ride of the year for me
« on: February 04, 2024, 07:04:04 PM »
First ride of the year for me today.
Went for out for an hour ( only around 40 miles ) I couldn’t do any more than that as I need the first service done (1000 miles ) already up to 938 and have got to ride it to Maidstone Harley for the service.

Nice to get the first one of the year out of the way  :thumb: It's been either wet, windy or both up here, chomping at the bit to get out now.

I know you have had bad weather up your way 😮
And I do feel for you and hopefully you will be able to get out soon 🤞
But today was 12 degrees down here and dry, it was great to get back out.

Rode it ! I got out on the tigger for the first time this year and it felt bloody great. I didn't get too far mind (about 30 miles), but I got some fresh petrol in and had a quick picture at St Marys lighthouse, Whitley Bay. You forget how quick these things are after a few months off them...

Cheers, it's had a winter of faffing & tidying ready for some half decent weather now. I did notice my new fitness regime has made my textile's a bit on the loose side, I usuallly suffer from 'textile shrinkage' this time of year. Looks like new kit is the order of the day...
