Just prior to a little 100 miler down to Ferndown and Wimborne via Salisbury and Ringwood.

All done on 2.97 litres of petrol costing £3.23.

I clocked up 4000 miles today since 25th April 2019.

That’s incredibly frugal, scooter. I reckon my bikes would need 8 or 9 litres for 100 miles.

I did the swap this morning. A couple of quick snaps before rain put a dampener on proceedings...

Hopefully, I’ll take it for a longer run tomorrow.

That does look nice.

It's got fun written all over it.

Now I've had 4 bikes since 2008 but I reckon you've had 4 in a couple of years.

You’ve got L plates scooter, I thought you had passed your motorcycle test?

Also impressed how you are balanced on that stationary bike, quite a feat!

Knowing nothing about motorbikes, I had to look up a CBT...so you can ride forever as long as you take that test every 2 years but will always be classed as a learner hence must use L plates. Now I understand (I think).

First proper ride out on the Scrambler 1200, up to Crosby, Merseyside to have a gander at Another Place, via the Mersey Tunnel.

Very happy with this bike...

No pictures of the sculptures (forgot) but here's a couple of the bike:

You've got it cracked Patrick.

But it's not a test it's training, although you can fail if you're crap.
