Just started to feel colder here again today, and supposed to be the general trend for a few days now, not particularly sunny with it either - don't think I'll be out much this coming week Sad

And it's usually the weather over the pennines that stops me coming over your way or heading down into Yorkshire. At least (for me) in The Lakes, I can run away quickly if it turns Laughing

The Filling Station is where I always head for first if I'm heading for The Lakes. A nice blat down the A591, cuppa and a bite there, then on with the day's ride proper. See you there sometime Thumbs Up

Had my first proper ride out with my lad on Sunday. He passed his A2 during the week and picked up a Ninja 300 on Saturday.
Nice little run from Northampton to St Neots and back. Just 3 of us, Ninja 300, Ninja 600 and Monster 1200.
I was impressed with the way the 300 kept up. Would show some vid but camera angle was a bit low and includes my speedo. Embarassed

Two days running managed to get out to on the bike.

Thursday I rode from Woking to Virginia Water via Chertsey (back roads, not residential). Then on to Sunningdale and Ascot from there. Took Chobham Road back to Woking then on to Newland's Corner via the A247 to the A25. Didn't have much time so just popped out to watch the sunset – was a great evening. Arrived just as a group of bikers showed up. I kept myself to myself and gave a nod as I "quietly" (if anything on the Monster can be considered 'quiet') snuck out.

Friday it was another ride past Newland's to Dorking at which time I lost patience with the rush hour traffic (at 3 in the afternoon? I reckon road works) so turned back.

Noticed a bit of a rattling coming from the engine on the second ride, so now a wee bit concerned. Confused

No piccies because I couldn't be arsed, but it was a sunny run up the horseshoe pass today. Not too many bikes, but more importantly, no fecking tourists gawking and doing 3 miles an hour.

Just dodging' about the Lakes again.
Things looking a bit more picturesque with the tops dusted in snow, and I wasn't sure whether to post some of these shots here or in the photography thread, but I was plagued by white skies in the photos today, and I decided they just didn't quite pass muster, so I'll dump em here Razz

From just below the top of the Kirkstone Pass, the small lake is Brothers Water, but I've yet to identify the prominent fell:

Washed the bike thoroughly yesterday, and it was all shiny shiny when I set out. Run off from melting snow, mud and salt soon put paid to that and now it's filthier than it was before I washed it. Bollocks.

Today I did go here:

You always find Fazers in nice places Mr. Green
Chap just recently picked up this boxeye 600, so I directed him to the Fazer owners club. He seems happy enough with it.

And I did go here:

Do you know what? I haven't a clue. Started out into Somerset, got lost. Found myself again. Had a really fun
time turning about 14 quids worth of petrol into speed, noise and fire. The Spacker is not a comfy place to be at 100+.

Thanks Smile More, better shots in the photography thread in Random. And without that pesky Fazer! Rolling Eyes

Went to a job, and the Ponderosa is on the way back... it would have been rude not to stop.

Why is your exhaust pipe so long? I'd be chopping a foot out of that pipe straight away.

Something I've been thinking for a long while. Just haven't got around to it.
