    It’s a sunny day here in Kent. The roads are bendy, and I’m out for a ride.

    Just thought I’d gloat...

    Nice

    I rode daily for almost 50 yrs and taught the sport for 15 of those years.

    Since you live in England and are riding an American bike, I live in America so I will post a pic of an English bike I owned.

    Enjoy!
    Overcast here - and doc has told me no trailbiking until my shoulder heals...:(
    I will practice a bit before heading into Paris to the Florence and the Machine concert.

    Started out nice here, but it keeps going a bit dull.

    Nice! a gorgeous day over here, I'm afraid I had to put my good guy hat on and mow the old dear on the corners lawn as well as doing our back yard so the girl friends father didn't have to

    We are looking after our daughter's house in southern Ireland and it is lovely and warm
    with sunny skies and light clouds and with the nearest village 2 1/2 miles away it is very
    quiet and peaceful. Unfortunately we are going home on Wednesday :(

    I am so jealous of you guys and your bikes. I have two Ducatis stashed away in storage in the US...
    Turkish roads in my area are nice and twisty- great for riding... Turkish car drivers on those road... not so much.
    Enjoy the rides, friends!

    Weather’s still good - a friend’s just texted me to say he’s taking tomorrow off work to go for a ride and would I like to join him.

    I think maybe the Buell needs a run out too...

    It’s. A lovely autumn morning here at casa MrC in NZ too... no fun stuff today though - have a stand of Manuka (Tea Tree) to clear so the only engine I will fire up is the chainsaw...

    The sheep are all gone to bed now and still a pleasant evening. That reminds me, I must get that hat washed
