    Who’s ventured out then

    It now appears that BJ has given the green light for us to get back on two wheels - :788: :788: yippee -  with the news that we can travel anywhere (as long as we avoid Scotland and Wales  :010:) in order to exercise.
    Thanks BJ, you’ve no idea what this release means, 7 months without using the CT, due to shoulder surgery, including 8 weeks of self isolating lock down was starting to take it’s toll.  :156:
    So come Monday the walking boots will be placed in the top box, along with a flask of tea, and I’m away, to
    re-aquaint myself with the lanes of Lincolnshire, which at present seem a distant memory, on my way to my “exercise” destination.  :164:
    So come guys, who else is, or has already taken the plunge and ventured out.  :001:

    Yes, a nice bimble out cross-country to Rivington and back. I didn't stop anywhere, just rode  :001:. It was very busy around Rivington, lots of walkers and cyclists out and who can blame them?

    Riding a motorbike is an exercise on it's own, you have to maintain your skills in order to keep riding safely  :017:

    You’ve certainly got a point there Ray, but I’ve a funny feeling that U.K. plod wouldn’t quite see it that way should we get pulled.

    I got involved with a PPE delivery thing over here in Ireland and have been on a few nice little spins over the last few weeks.
    I got up to Virginia in Co.Cavan on Saturday (about 250 km round trip) to hand over 4500 gloves and 100 N95 masks that where destined for a nursing home in Co.Donegal.

     :046: :788: The lanes of Lincolnshire certainly didn’t disappoint today  :001: had a great ride and even got to see the Red Arrows practicing at RAF Scampton, brilliant.  :788:

    Took it out for a nice easy run.
    Good to blow the cobwebs off!
