So we enter week 4 of lockdown because of this Chinese virus, now becoming a right pain in the backside, just had the best Easter weekend in a long time with regards to the weather and NO MOTORCYCLING!!! , luckily we can still get parts so there has been fettling in the workshop and my garden is looking nice!
This makes me realise just how much my motorcycling means to me, its so much more than a hobby. most of my friends I have made in one way or another through motorcycling, and most of my weekends (and occasionally weekdays) I've been motorcycling, most of Fiona and my holidays have been spent motorcycling and camping. I have resisted the urge to get out, the state and the media has us all thinking that enjoying ourselves is a major crime against the state so for now I'm towing the line but I think there is a limit and I'm getting close to it.
Not overly happy with the Police state we seem to have turned into very quickly, some police have been overzealous to say the least but then again I suppose the Bams have also had their part to play, and even more annoying is the Petrol price is lower than it has been for ages!!!
Anyhow, rant over and some random photos from 2010 to remind us of happier times... Stay safe my friends.
