    Going home from work this morning; a little tired, rainy, small, wet, slippery roads with gravel and old leaves on the roads. What's not to like??

    Think maybe I'll spend a little time with the polishing today?

    Overlooking Lough Swilly on the road to Buncrana, Donegal

    P1020606 (2) (Custom).JPG

    Road to Belfast from Ballycastle. Biggest problem was sea spray on the visor. Road runs very very close to breaking waves against the sea wall. Approx 20 miles of empty swooping road, well recommended.

    Wow that's a lot of damage for a pigeon, I think I can see it still stuck inside your fairing!!

    Ouch!

    Biggest I've hit on two wheels was a songbird. Twas me rather than the bike though, and mid-overtake at about 90mph (ahem...)

    I will refrain from the "bird meets bird" gags, as I feel your pain! Ebay is your friend for a new panel - I wish you happy hunting!

    A trip out to Rame Head, via the Torpoint Ferry and the excellently named Freathy Cliff...

    I'm cheating a little, this was yesterday's ride...!

    I fear October may be running out of the beautiful riding weather it's offered so far....

    A ride through the Wye Valley to make the most of the (still) good weather here.

    P1020755 (Custom).JPG

    Onto Tintern Abbey
    P1020756 (Custom).JPG

    A bit further on and the bike started feeling a bit "strange" on the back end. Uh oh i know what that is. Rear puncture!! For once no kit on board, usually carry a repair kit and mini compressor. Managed to ride at 20mph (the shame of it) for 7 miles into Ross on Wye to the nearest garage. Pressure was 6lbs, pumped it up, leaking bad. A Polish lad on a VTR came over and took me to his garage, he was a farm mechanic with a full workshop and a repair kit. Plugged it, rode 35 miles home and its still holding. Good job i had ordered a new tyre on Friday!

    Gotta be glad it happened at the end of the tyre's life! A puncture in fresh rubber is so frustrating...

    Also, gotta love the right person turning up at the right time! Tis nice that if you're stopped or stranded (in the UK at least - you guys elsewhere find the same?), usually the first biker to pass will stop and see if they can help. I was quietly pleased with myself when I clocked a pair of German guys on their old-ish GS and broken RT looking stuck in a lay-by in my home town and managed to get them going again. Not through my own expertise I hasten to add - they'd already sussed the problem, but I could lead them to a good spares shop and play translator to the bemused owner, who had the part they needed in stock and lent them what they needed to fit it!

    Reminded me of a line in a book by Mike Carter called Uneasy Rider - "This only confirmed my growing conviction that motorcyclists, along with gardeners, are the nicest people on earth."

    A good read by the way...

    Cheers TWU. found the book on Amazon, ordered it used £1.79 free delivery! I'm a sucker for books, who needs a tv?
    I was lucky with the guy stopping. He was Polish and couldn't have been more helpful.
    As i was riding around that day i probably saw another 25? bikes and every bike i see i always wave/acknowledge them. I think three waved back! Majority of bikers these days are weekend warriors mainly on adventure/trail type bikes with all the gear and no idea. All wearing £400+ plus jackets, trousers, helmets etc etc. It's almost becoming a fashion statement these days. I usually find it's the guys on older bikes who wave/ acknowledge back. Guys like us.
