Nice 100+ mile run along the Fosse, taking in Stowe on the Wold, Burford, Chipping Norton, Banbury, Southam and then home.
Was a bit windy, especially on the ridges. Glad I wasn’t on a small light bike. :shock:

We’re not that far from each there Bob, and the good runs are to the South of us. One day we may run into each other. Not literally of course.
I wonder if the Touchdown Cafe will survive?

You will probably spot me when I've had to stop and get off to push the Harley around a corner . 😂

You have been reading to many posts on this forum. :D

Mind you today due to the gusting wind, I went round several corners as though they were a thrupenny bit.

I've resorted to doing my own Harley jokes just to save the usual nobheads the trouble .

Recognise that bit of road A423 just before the Farnborough turn.
Lovely series of sweeping bends just after it heading to Southam, in fact the whole road Southam to Banbury was great until they slapped at 50mph limit on the whole lot :roll:
Travelled that road to work everyday for 14 years. :thumb:

I was out yesterday but my phone died so no pics. Marlborough, Hungerford, Wantage, Wayland's Smithy, Cirencester, Slad and home. On the Ridgeway the wind was quite brisk. Like JRH glad I had a heavy bike. So many good roads especially in Oxfordshire blighted with 50 mph limits. Sadly my eyesight isn't too good when it comes to numbers.
Less empty roads but at last I can ride them!

Sadly yes and there are 4 favoured mobile speed camera sites they regularly use :cry:
