My weekend.

I left my house 5.45am Sunday morning to ride through the New Forest to Lymington. I caught a ferry to the Isle of Wight. I walked around the island some and then rode around the island. I attended the annual ride-out which was also cool.

Monday I left at 5.30am to catch the ferry to Lymington and then rode to Brighton to meet the other Donkei Skoks, where we pointed at shiney things and made crude jokes. I then dumped the Skoks to have lunch with my brother and sister in law.

I then rode home. All in all just under 400 miles.

I have lots more pics but I have just posted a few.


first fuel up. first of many.

I must admit the 300 did perform well. 400 miles in 48 hours and my bum wasn't event that numb!

my favourite
These two are my favourite pictures from the weekend. You can't actually see much. But when I look at these images I remember what I could see at that moment. It was 5.45am and I was looking out across the isle of wight from a high vantage point across the sea as the sun was just starting to rise. There was beautiful rolling fog across the fields and it was amazing. So I pulled over to take a pic, but there was not enough light

Sorry Pete you know I am only joking.

The super seat is actually really comfortable, it took a while to get used to it (and AlanWs fluted seat cover helps, it stops sliding down the front)

Maybe it's time to research a new more comfortable seat, get one that has extra padding, for those with a robust build.

I'm toying with the idea of extra padding for long hauls. 8)

Thought about going this year in commemoration of hitting the big 4-0. So, since I did not make it, I really appreciate the photos.
