South Oxon noob
« on: September 16, 2018, 06:42:21 pm »
Bob Cook, been riding a 30th Anniversary K13S for a couple of years.  Don't change bikes regularly, had a VFR800 for more than 5 years before this but reckon I'll keep this til the wheels fall off, especially as they don't make 'em anymore.  Live in south Oxfordshire, near junction 6 of the M40.

Welcome to the forum Bob Cook.  :)
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

Welcome from Junction 11 of the M40. A fine motorway.  ;)

You must be near that weird bus stop area below the motorway at Lewknor. One of the few places you can just abandon a car in the countryside, it seems, and not get a ticket:

I know where you mean. Probably a car share into London meeting and parking spot.
