i really want to go riding now after seeing all these pictures!  too busy at work at the mo, although i've had permission (!) from my good lady to go riding all day saturday as she will be wedding watching with her friends. i'm planning on doing my favourite route at the moment which means riding from carmarthen to leominster and following the A44 all the way to aberystwyth. i'll be the slow guy on my DN-01....

 I was on the A44 monday,heading east from Rhyader to Kington,,mind the road works near Crossgates ,and enjoy
lifelong motorcycle rider,and fan

All these posts of midweek biking are making me jealous. When I retire on 7th September I'm going to be making the most of the autumn weather to rack up some miles on the bikes  :).

A great run out on the Triumph today. Moulin Moor to Pitlochry and back then up to Glenshee. Not much snow left now.

Some nice rides out,  and good pictures too.

That 750 K2? Appears to have a British Yoshimura pipe on it,  supplied usually via Dixon Racing originally.

Out and about on Millie today. Wow, what a bike....it is very crisp and responsive and the exhaust sounds fantastic, not too loud that it shatters windows though. It handles like a dream and even the seat I made is comfy. All in, a very, very nice bike and great fun to ride.

what a great day! wifey and i had breakfast together then she settled down for the wedding and i headed off from sunny carmarthen to leominster. quick coffee then on to crossgates to listen to the power rangers bragging about their riding skills. on to aberystwyth for a quick stop then down the coast to cardigan, over the preseli hills to haverfordwest, then home via the tenby coast. i did around 300 miles so i treated the trusty DN-01 to a bath to cool its tyres down.

Yes Jason, I didn't want anything too loud. All I have though is the downpipes, the chrome tail pipe, which is purely decorative and Trig fitted a push in baffle from China that cost about £3 inc post !!!
