I'm sure there's a compromise to be found. :D

Re the heated grips, I found that hand guards made a big difference by taking the wind blast off the hands - not aesthetically great, but easily fitted / removed for summer / winter use.

Cheers,

Clocked up my 10,000th mile on the GS this morning, so I felt obliged to wash the bike when I got home...

Wow!

That's quite a milestone in a relatively short time.

Yeah, the bike is getting a lot of use - no doubt about it. I'm sure the resale value will be taking a hit, but not to worry. :D

You can't put a price on 10000 miles of fun.

Probably not much worse a hit than some of us have taken on flipping expensive watches, and you've probably had more enjoyment for your money :problem: :lol:

Indeed Patrick. I’ve swapped one money pit for another.

Still, all hobbies cost money. And passions cost a little more!

Longest ride since the knee op. Actually that doesn't bother me at all now, it's just the fight against anno domini and reducing strength!

So here's a pic of the flat bar 1X that I made up in front of one of my favourite views near Wychford. On days like this, I'm always grateful that I can still ride there and really enjoy just being out in the sun.

The view and the bike look lovely Paul.

I like the Drawmer personalisation.

I was out today too but on The Monkey Bike at Compton Abbas (although shut)

I do like the look of the 'monkey'! Never ridden a motor bike, suspect I'm too old to learn now!

Paul

Having only ridden scooters I had to teach myself how to ride my first motorbike 11 months ago.

I practised in Mole Valley Farmers car park for an hour and then got on with it on the road.

You could do it it and learn through a (C)ompulsory (B)asic (T)raining course.
