Absolutely.

My dad would have approved having been in the 6th Airborne.

That said he never did learn how to drive a car nor ride a motorbike.

Actually they are pretty knobbly.

Thank you.

That's the Bristol Cross in the foreground with the Pantheon across the lake.

I knew that. :-"

No pictures from my ride today. It involved a visit to the Kawasaki dealer for the 600 mile check-up/oil change, together with the tail-end surgery. It also involved a three and half hour wait. ](*,)

Always good to get that 600 mile service out the way.

Tail end surgery?

Getting panniers fitted?

No, just a “tail-tidy” - basically a modified rear section that is reduced in length and looks a bit neater/less plasticky.

Not the best pictures but here’s my bike (as standard), followed by the dealer demo that has had the tail-tidy fitted:

It’ll take an anorak to spot the difference. :)

I've been on L plates since 1970 although most recently since my last 6 CBTs.

If I was lucky enough to pass a test I would probably buy a bigger bike and kill myself.

To be honest the plates of shame don't bother me in the slightest as I ride for enjoyment only.

These days 107 kgs is all that I can manoeuvre around when off the bike.

No shame at all! You enjoy riding; and how you do that, and on what, is no-one's business but your own. I wonder if there are any side benefits of a full license- cheaper insurance, wider bike choices (focussing on comfort rather than performance), training or touring opportunities.

Rich

I'm sure all that you have mentioned is probably the case.

If truth be known I should have taken the test in 1970 at 17. It would have been easier then.

Have to say that I do admire your R1200GS, an absolute cracker.

Early evening ride on the Focus.

I wasn't sure if I could make it with the back playing up but I got in a 22 miler.

Result.
