Awoke early this morning, and after a light breakfast decided to wash the scooter and prior to carrying out an oil change, take the LML for a short run just to warm the engine up. Staying local, on quiet roads before returning home to get busy with the tools.

Love those English country roads. You might even expect Hobbits to walk by. I would really enjoy sitting in a lawn chair beside those English Cottages smoking a fine cigar and sipping on a Brand. You being able to ride down those lanes on a Vespa - almost heaven.

You paint a very attractive picture there, Bob!

Incidentally, the little rough-looking lane near Old Wingate is quite ancient, possibly dating back to Medieval times when the original village was abandoned, probably due to plague deaths. The main vehicle to use it now is the Postman in his van!
