Done 20miles all year so far due to covid and working flat tap to cover those at higher risk that got put onto furlough scheme.

So at the moment.

Nope not missing it one bit.
But new bike is turning up tomorrow so . . . .

Big plans for next year with trips and adventures here there and everywhere.

Well first time on the forum for over a week. Not been able to get out on the bike due to weather, work and Covid rules. I guess if there going to lock us down get on with it whilst it wet and raining and cold as I am not doing another year of glorious sun shine and being stuck in the back garden with a 10 year old. :shock: :80:

My only saving grace is that I can work from home and no longer need to jet off around Europe seeing customers now that all of a sudden they have realised that programs like zoom, teams and other web ex systems do the job just as well and you don't need to be face to face.

The benefits of living a naturally socially distanced lifestyle, life carries on pretty much as normal ...... :wink: :lol: :lol:

Took the Trumpets new running/spot lights for a socially distancing 60 mile shakedown this p.m. and can report that a successful installation has been achieved. Especially pleasing was the speed with which the b######s who hadn't dipped their lights did so when they got a dose of trumpet spotlight power in return 🏍🙂.
Next mod' - heated grips.

I just installed Osram nightbreaker laser H4,s in my van they reckon 150% more light than a normal H4 , and they are not wrong they are bloody bright still only 60 watt bulbs not LED,S either , worth a thought if you wanna upgrade your lights with no hassle
