After a fraught week at work (not stressed just dismayed really) I took Friday off to make some progress in the garage, progress was limited but at least there was some, the Guzzi T3 I bought in October I thought was ready to go but alas there are a few issues to be fixed before its usable, just what I need another bike in need of repair!
Saturday we had a long overdue ride on the BMW's, a pleasant day and great to be on the tarmac again. Today we were at the trial in Fife where I'm glad to say the organisers took into account that the newbies needed some leeway so they might learn something other than wallowing in the mud picking bikes up. A grand and successful day and my thanks to the organisers, we live to fight another day!
Looking forward to the spring and summer ahead and after today there will be some trials riding included in that.
The pics at the end are courtesy of our team photographer Eck Eadie, Lindsay hurt his back and pulled out so Eck was forced to photograph the D team!! Cheers Eck!
