Mooch about Thursday 8th

#1 Post by goat » Mon Nov 05, 2018 8:48 pm

Might go for a scoot on the bike this Thursday. Haven't ridden since August so will be riding like a useless tool I should imagine. Likely setting off from north east London Probo towards cafe at north Weald. If anyone cares to join then you would be welcome. You will of course be required to buy me a coffee and help me strip wallpaper when I get home.

I always ride like a tool, is there another way?! :lol:
2018 BMW R nineT
“It’s shit. And as soon as I get home I’m going to buy one.”
That was a fellow journalist’s first impression of the BMW R nineT recently. It’s a pretty accurate summary; the R nineT is somewhat ill-mannered by modern motorcycle standards but also instantly, inarguably, infatuatingly wonderful.

Not that I've discovered. I heard rumours there might be another way.

That would have been a nice ride, but I have meetings on Thursday.

Well I made it out for first ride in 2 and a bit months. Bit wobbly at first but soon got into it and it was lovely. Took me a while to get going, fiddling about with textile layers, putting the battery back in but losing the little square nut from the battery post, and checking oil and tyres.
Here's me on an Essex lane

Sorry I couldn’t join you - great weather for it, though. I think I’m getting the new bike on Tuesday, so perhaps next time :thumb:
