Motorcycling 2017
« on: March 15, 2018, 06:29:43 pm »
Some photos taken on motorcycle rides in 2017. A very good year weather wise. Not sure that 2018 will be quite as good but fingers crossed.

11th January 2017 and a ride out to our favourite café at Newport for custard doughnuts. Yummy.

11th March with a trip up to see the new premises of Overland and Classic Motorcycles at Melton Mowbray.

5th April a few of us enjoy the lanes in Essex

17th April and the bluebells are growing well

27th April and off to Wales for a long weekend with my mates from up north

5th May and a tyre scrub ride to the Black Bull at Cavendish

6th May with a trip to the open day at Hilltop tuning near Hinckley

19th May weekend and a shakedown trip to Wales in preparation for Iceland. First time off road with full luggage.

25th May HBAM trip to the West coast of Ireland

3rd-10th June Old Gits Trip to Provence

24th June Mates ride to the east coast

5th July bike taken to Immingham for shipping to Iceland

21st July-1st Aug trip to Iceland

27th Aug club ride

30th Sept club ride

14th Oct trip up to Crew with rides into Wales

12th Nov Remembrance Sunday trip to Duxford

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.
