it’s like waiting for a bus …

After waiting 107 days to get back on a bike (see my recent Blog post here), I was out on the bike again during the week making it two rides within a few days of each other, and of necessity it was out on the Kawasaki again.  I headed off to Jeppo’s for a coffee […]

96 days and counting …

Despite summer having well and truly arrived in the UK, it’s now 96 days since I was last on a bike (see the post here). Circumstances well beyond my control have seen to that. It had been a pretty slow start to the biking year due to shoulder surgery, and just when the physio and […]

motorcycle sales increase …

Couldn’t help but notice that there have been plenty of stories across the internet in the last week or so following the release of data from the European Motorcycle Manufacturers Association that show significant increases in sales of new motorbikes (in Europe) when compared to the same period last year – which seems to be […]

continued progress … I think

It’s just a day short of seven weeks since I banged my knee and fractured it – which meant the first four weeks I did almost absolutely nothing and then the last couple of weeks doing a little bit more but  a long long way off anything like normal activity. The bikes remain in the […]

small steps forward …

Its a slow job but progress is being made. If you saw my Doctors Orders,  post the other day then you’ll know that apart from other things I’m a little way off from getting getting back on the bikes, so much so that my scheduled trip for July has been postponed. But progress is being […]
