Nice one scooter. Soon be time to knock the dust off of the Monkey?

I've been out on three rides this week, but sadly no pictures.

Tuesday - the epic A483 from Newtown to the cafe at Crossgates on the GS. A 200 mile day but well worth it and the weather was decent.
Wednesday - blood bike down to Birmingham M6/City/M6 on the FJR. Always interesting traffic situations.
Today - 60 mile round trip on back roads to see my old mum on the Multistrada. Bloody cold wind.

I keep looking at it but that wind factor and having to clean it after each ride due to the conditions are effectively putting me off.

Waiting for a good clear 3-4 days with a warmer temperature before venturing out.

I must admit, the cleaning is a pain.

MOT day fortunately coincided with a beautiful afternoon in East Kent (UK) so I had to take the scenic route home.
This is Grove Ferry, about 10 miles upstream from where the River Stour meets the sea at Sandwich and about as far as the river is navigable in anything larger than a canoe or small rowing boat.
Soon be time to get the "proper" bikes out!

A pretty poor picture from this morning at the Cat and Fiddle. Boy, is that place exposed to the elements!

That looks absolutely stunning Kari. I know the seasons must be punishing where you are (maybe the winter darkness especially), but this scene is just wonderful, and something to really appreciate. That’s coming from someone who’s just dragged herself through a very weird winter in Scotland! :lol:

That sled is just….I’m not sure how to describe it. Being from the great Midwest here in the US, both Polaris and Artic Cat are within 100 miles so kinda local. Never seen one exactly like yours, but I like it.

The winter darkness and the short summer nights are indeed a bit punishing for people suffering from seasonal affective disorder or insomnia
