    So for the first time since lockdown  last year my biffer finally turned a wheel and we crossed the border into Wales for a trip out
    It felt like riding a new bike for the first time.
    Heavy  , steered like a barge, and I couldn't find the gear lever , and when I did I kept looking for seventh!!
    on the plus side it is a joy to once again ride a bike that will sit in top gear blitz most traffic and then trundle along at sight seeing speeds.
    After a couple of months on my Suzuki GT380  its its good to be home :001:
    AND A LOT LESS FRANTIC!!!

    I've had a moment or two filtering although I did manage to get 2,000 essential miles in during lock down which included a 554 mile day to and from Barnard Castle for an eye test. I've had several emails from Travelodge tempting me with the headlines...

    WALES IS OPEN
    SCOTLAND IS OPEN
    2M ROOMS FOR 29 OR LESS

    I may just have to sign on for the Brit Butt Tour. and visit places I would not normally get to :028:

    Happy days
