Went out for a blast today

Post by menzies3032 » Sep 9th, '18, 13:30

Decided a bit last minute to get out on the bike and go for a blast and arranged with my cousin (Cuckoo on the forum) to meet him in the middle for a McDonald breakfast so buggered off with out posting it up as a ride :shock: (Naughty Moderator)

Left Teignmouth did M5 to Exeter
Then A30 to Honiton
Then A35 till it ran out
Then A31 to Ringwood area

Turns out there are two McDonald on this road a few miles apart so after confirming the right one had a great chat and a good Breakie.

Got to say traffic on the way home was shocking but still a worth while run :-bd

Not much fun using those roads.
I only go that way if I'm going to Southampton and just need to get there quickly, other than that the back roads are way better.

Went to one of my favourite cafés today.

Minehead, long way out, short way back.

New jkt. trews and hat fine. BIke went well. I'm aching all over.

Riding improved on the way back but still clunky.

Need to learn some new better roads in that direction. If there are better ones arrange a ride out to show me :-bd

Think I would have preferred any of the above 3 over fixing rear gate, visiting parents, and starting to tidy garage. Although the 10 min ride was good enough. 🙂

I went out for 30 min ride today, just to test out the newest incarnation of my screen on my 1190 ADV to stop the wind buffeting.. Also found the limits of how much of a power wheelie the TC will allow in street mode. :-)
