Good Afternoon one and all, I hope you are all enjoying this final blast of summer to get out there and ride your bikes before we find ourselves under a blanket of snow
For the sharp eyed amongst you, you may have noticed that we have changed our team photograph on the main web site. Yes that is me sitting astride a yellow BMW GS 800 (John’s second bike – thanks John) and not on my ‘Blade. Sadly a back injury has meant I have hardly ridden my bike this year but I am hopeful I will be fixed over the winter and I should be fit and able for next summer.
I did go for a blast on Andrew’s Ducati ‘Multi-Strudle’ today though. Some of you may be aware that Andrew rode my ‘Blade earlier this year – and spent 2 weeks slagging it off as the worst bike he has ever ridden. I was hoping to do the same for his bike however – it is good (Don’t tell Andrew I said that). It is light on the move, tips in to corners with ease and goes like a good ‘un – the front end can get a bit flighty in Sport mode – and I am led to believe that it can lift the front wheel in 3rd gear just on the gas (not that I did that of course). The riding position really suited my ruined back and let me sit bolt upright without compromising the ride at all. All in all I was pleasantly surprised and can tell you that his never ending raving about his bike is justified – almost. I still prefer my ‘Blade but at least I could ride his bike – oh bring on a new back and next summer…
Actually, truth be told, the blasted thing broke down 2 miles up the road and the AA suggested I just burn it as they’re too much trouble. I had to massage it’s tank for 5 minutes and whisper sweet nothings into its air intakes before it would go again. Useless Italian Pre-madonna
Safe riding to you all
