Me too, that's most impressive though the wife would not like it and the tail would end up in the garden behind us.

Cheers

I came across this today what must be the ultimate garden ornaments.

Just outside Newquay, Cornwall? That belonged to my friend Barry Wallond, unfortunately he died not long ago.
It's a Spitfire replica used in the movie Dark Blue World. He had another one that he used to take to shows or rent out for events.
Barry was a talented artist and quite a character!

Nice ride out today to Spurn Point on the North side end of the Humber, with a stop off for a nice Roast dinner for lunch. Its about a 180 mile round trip from home.

You can just see Spurn Point in the background.

Nice ride out today. I haven't done many miles this year so it was back to my favourite run along the River Nith to Glencaple. Criffel in the background

So only managed a Magnum

Had a lovely ride out yesterday to Ely. Beautiful weather, quite warm in the sun but that autumnal nip was in the air later in the day.

There's a cracking, unspoilt motor/motorbike museum in Llangollen, about a mile out of town, by the canal.  Not sure if open at the mo.
We went there last year on our 400fours,  left our helmets and jackets there while we went on a canal trip.

I went there a few years ago, amazing place there was a section that was full of NOS parts and set up like a 1960's dealership, I could have spent my life there just looking through the shelves

Riding around Lincolnshire this morning getting prices for a new Haldex pump on my Freelander 2. The new exhaust system I bought recently for my CB750/4 K2 was cheap in comparison to this piddly little pump (£1900 supplied and fitted 😱😱😱😱). Anyway, Hettie, me little 400/4 turned 50,000 miles en route. As Graham reminded me, it's actually only the numbers on the speedo that have done 50k. Some restoration work had been done by a previous owner years ago and I have had the clocks rebuilt by Peter, we overhauled the front forks and then there was that major engine overhaul + lots of other little bits done to keep her in fine fettle. She is still an absolute pleasure to ride.
