So good to see this thread come alive again Cool


Had a week off and have been down to Cornwall to see a very good old friend of mine that moved down there in retirement a few years ago. Originally it was supposed to be a biking holiday but eventually it got changed to a couples holiday so that Mrs Arry could come along as we've not been away - lockdown innit.

Really wanted to take my 911. But alas, some building works around the house meant that it went into storage and with everything going on, I didn't get a chance to go grab it before we left, so it was the daily that had to be the steed Sad Boo....

But my friend took pity on me and dragged this beast out of the garage Wub

So, I dragged Mrs Arry's sorry ass around on it all day - she absolutely loved it, and so did I. What a machine Cool

Torque right through every gear and every RPM, buttery smooth, fantastic suspension and brakes that never seem to tie it up in knots and just like an old pair of boots you put on, instantly comfortable and easy to ride - slow or fast.

Hit Lands End on a motorcycle - life goal attained.

Then we dicked around in the lanes for a few hours eating Pasties at St Just before setting off for St Ives.

It's fair to say that on the road to St Ives you would - had you have travelled that day - met a disgruntled man with an Italian Hyperbike that had come over typically Primadonna Laughing But thankfully it decided to behave itself shortly after and he was back underway again. Only a minor mishap.

Superb day - fantastic few days actually with a great host, great weather, great countryside and lots of laughs. Enjoyed it very much.

Then today, after having a week of sunshine and only one day of my own motorcycles in the last gawd knows how long, I decided to set off on a long one. TBF, I probably shouldn't have - I'd done just under 1000 miles in the car this week and was feeling pretty tired but the opportunity was there so I forced myself to take it.

Set off 8 ish and first stop was going to be breakfast. Ordinarily I stop at Andrewsfield Aviation as they do a neat brekkie at the air strip but today I rolled past it and thought I'd head towards Finchingfield first thing and see if the queue wasn't too sad. Didn't get that far before I spotted an incline in the road which was clearly an old railway bridge, and 'station road' to my right. New housing dominated proceedings but I persevered and..... Lo and behold, an old railway station converted to a cafe!

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51229936224_ab52edcf3c_c.jpg


After this little find, I set off via Finchingfield to Thetford Forest.

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51229935424_1ec7872ba5_c.jpg

Then onwards to do the Norfolk TT:

https://www.bestbikingroads.com/motorcycle-roads/united-kingdom/east-anglia/ride/norfolk-tt-mildenhall-swaffham-fakenham-thetford-bury-st-edmunds

The Enfield was pretty much flat out up the A1065 section of the route, but still managed to go by plenty of other things, and on the way back down again it was happily carving through the lanes.

Played fuel light roulette a little too close - but didn't run out. Did put my waterproofs on, but the cloud always seemed to be behind me. Someone was smiling on me today it seems Smile

Day off yesterday, was planning to ride down to the coast but the bike for doing that was behind 2 other bikes so I dragged out the 350 as it was at the front and spent a few hours dodging tracked vehicles.

It's dry and dusty enough I had to swap air filter after about an hour. The original caked in enough dust the bike wouldn't idle.

Yesterday I took the R Nine T for its first MOT:

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51240496559_2dce9b9e12_c.jpg

It passed, natch. Showing ~5750 miles after 3 years. Positively high mileage for one of these, now Shocked Sad Laughing Most of them get ridden to the coffee shop, or off to the barbers for some beard grooming and that's about that.

I'll have had it a year in July and have done circa 2500 miles on it. Not a bad start given lockdowns etc, but not the best. Hoping to head to Wales the end of this month - fingers crossed.


In the meantime I rode around the Essex lanes a bit:

Then over to Kent, to pilot something a bit different:

Flew over Leeds and Sissinghurt Castles:

Picked about the perfect day for it. Fabulous experience.

Found that after 370 miles with my bike setup rather hard on mixed Highland roads my arse would want a rubber ring lol. Was a good run, mixed weather and mixed roads, from fast A roads to gravel covered b roads.

I have been taking spy shots at a kiddie's skate park in Burnham on Crouch Drooling Shhh!

75 miles after work on a nice sunny evening. Couldn't do that if I were still in town (I'd have been too pissed by the time I got home).

Even got the famous Burnham Bends all to myself both ways - not a car in sight Shocked Cool
