Going for a quick spin!

My mate Andreas just rang (CB1000R), to ask if I fancy a ride out to the River Rhine for a coffee. Friday dinner, no work, Mmmm...

...see you later  :305: :305: :305:

Now that was enjoyable.  :305:

The Pirelli Scorpion Trail tyres are very good, I've well and truly run them in now. Ground clearance around corners is first class - wow, you can ride this bike fast!  :005:

Tomorrow, I'm off to the Netherlands - speed limits lower, so I'll have to slow it down. Goin' Cruisin'.  :062:

I've just got back from a 330km trip into the Eifel - jeezzz... it was cold  :190: :190: :190:  5°C and windy!

I should've put the liner in my jacket!  :232:

S-mode for the hills is great fun - D-mode too highly geared, but great for the fast runs.

And I won't have to do this very often at 6.4 l/100km average - which will get better on a long run.

I love my CT  :305:

No rain - but with rain it might have been warmer  :190:

I've always been a Shoei man - love the lid - XR1100 with a Scala rider G4 on the side.  :062:
