At last - the day has come - I rode my bike! Changed rear tyre, and wash all that dead bugs away from fairings:


My first thought was "This thing is really fast" :001:

I'm so happy now. However we can't make trips on bike yet. But it will come soon, veeery soon.

I took a ride today, too. Eighty miles, very uplifting. I really needed that.

Scottish Government has eased lockdown, and from tomorrow we can travel 5 miles for leisure/exercise..... that barely gets me to the next town!!  I must have misunderstood, and they meant 50 miles, don't you think?   :008: :008: :008:

How unusual to find someone with the same bike, on the same forum with the same condition..and on the same small land mass..well, who would have thought it.
Dyscalculia !

. . . and from tomorrow we can travel 5 miles for leisure/exercise . . . .
The wording around the 5 miles is "strong advice". It isn't a law, nor a "directive" from the SNP  :027:

Being weak minded I think I'll head for Ullapool tomorrow . . . the long, bendy way, staying off the main roads wherever possible  :046:

Pictures of sun drenched Scottish mountains with a little Welshman in the foreground will be forth coming  :008: Lets see what those Dunlop round things are capable off on dry and hot Highland roads  :001:

Don't tell Nicola, but I was out for a spell yesterday and today - loosening things up after the winter layoff, and checking my brother-in-law's empty flat in Glasgow.

Hopefully tomorrow and the weekend will see somewhere out in the countryside, and quiet, and definitely more than 5 miles away!!  :008:

I hear what you are all saying about laws and rules and directives - however, I'm a fairly law-abiding guy, Covid is NOT funny, and at 67, I don't need to catch anything I don't have to, so I'm happy to apply quite a lot of caution.....and I even wear a mask in the supermarket.....  :034:

You should go careful with the masks
They can harbour a lot of bacteria. Single use ones are only meant to be used once and then binned. In my opinion you're better off without it
