Its the granite core of an ancient volcano, I've always found my eyes drawn to it when I've been in that area.

Cool bike Julie. The exhaust looks reassuringly Loud.
I wish we had some dry weather here to go out for a spin, tomorrow should be sunny though.

It's a Laser system, not mega, mega loud but the tone is fantastic. It just makes you want to ride faster though, just to hear it at its best 😀😀😀 The Yoshimura I have fitted to my CB550/4 Mongrel has the same effect on me 🙄🙄🙄🙄

I had a Yoshi on one of my 500s and it was a lovely sound but nothing even came close to the howl of a Piper exhaust on full belt, my wife could hear it from 3 miles away as I came down the valley we lived in back then.
Don't play stupid with me, I'm better at it

That's not a rat bike, Julie.  A rat bike is one that only get cleaned by the rain.

Had a lovely ride out today to the North Yorkshire Moors and Whitby. Found a stunning place called Levisham, in Rydale. Talk about up hill down dale, there was plenty of that and the scenery was stunning. Sheep all over the road and saw a steam train chuffing along. Took a slight wrong turn between Levisham village and Levisham Station, it looked like a small lane, then it turned into a farm track but we kept going until we were off roading. Good thing we were on the CD250's......You find the best places on a Honda 😁. Just over 250 miles today. Thanks to Ash and Cathy for the cuppa on the way up there.

Also saw this T500 in Whitby. 1972 'L' reg. An absolute stunner. The chap bought it out of a private collection last year, 12000 miles and totally, totally original. I had one back in the day but mine was a pile of shite, this one was just beautiful.

I'll have to go to the A40 after Crickhowell to take a photo of the AA box there.
