Rode up to North Wales on Monday, I was a bit worried how the Ducati  would cope with longer distances , I did 600 miles in 3 days , the Ducati was faultless on  green lanes , twistie B roads , sweeping bends , A roads , dual carriageway , motorways , luggage carrying capabilities were great and didn't affect handling and even MPG was more than adequate at 56 miles to the gallon .

I love that part of the country. Porlock hill and countersbury hill are fun aren't they. Stunning views along the top too. I might have to see what offers Minehead Butlins have got on.
I am lucky to have such stunning scenery not to far away .

There was a post I saw on faceache today.

It took days for laws to be changed to make Kodi box type devices illegal to use in the way that most people use them but its taken years to get nowhere with preventing known (or suspected) terrorists from coming into the country.

That's because greedy fat cat corporations were losing out on millions of pounds worth of revenue, much more Important than innocent lives.

My problem with the reposonse to all these 'terrorists' attacks is that having armed guards/soldiers would have not changed a thing about what happened Monday night. It wouldn't have mattered if they had tanks parked either side of the entrance, wouldn't have mattered if they had metal detectors on the doors, NOTHING would have stopped that asshat doing what he was gonna do.
Putting the army on the streets does nothing more than intimidate the innocent and help keep US in check.
A suicide bomber has already come to terms with the fact they are gonna die so they aren't gonna be bothered who's got a gun as long as they can press their button.

Not to get all tinfoil hat on you but it does seem like there's a higher agenda here. Much like in America after 9/11 they pushed through massive amounts of laws that stripped people of their privacy in the name of keeping the country safe.
They've already started here with the snoopers charter. What's next though? How long before we all have to carry ID? How long before you have to be searched before entering shopping centers/schools/libraries etc? Before your privacy is taken away in the name of 'security'? The harsh truth is 'terrorism' is very good for governments when they have an agenda to push.

And on a final note, The truest words I've heard from a celebrity in my life, I've never thought much of Morrissey but this time he's bang on.......
What is your objection to carrying an identity card? also what is your objection to being searched before entering a Shop or Sports venue Etc! We had to live with it in N Ireland for 30 years plus during the troubles. Anyone who  does object to carrying an TD card must have something to hide, Also if searched before entering a shopping centre surely the 15 seconds wasted of your life would only make your shopping experience better knowing that you may jst be a little bit safer to enjoy your day.
My plan is cheaper , and only infringes on the rights of those intent on doing us harm , I would extend it to serial murderers and sex offenders .

Arrest  the 3000 known Jihadists fit it a small explosive charge inserted by their carotid artery , that detonated when they walk out the front door , no need for soldiers on the streets , deportation or POW camps.

Why is it that the Police have the powers to seize the passports of known troublemakers during football tournaments , but allow the 3000 known Jihadists to travel hither and thither , I won't say what I would do to these scum on a social platform as big brother is watching .

Took the Ducati for its first ride since the 600 mile service , rode to Avebury hill then back via Salisbury plain , what a cracking little bike , I was worried the lack of fairing might be an issue at higher speeds , but it's not .

Took the Ducati Scrambler for its first ride , what a fantastic bike to ride , light and nimble , which makes filtering easy ,  stickcs to the road like shit to a blanket , don't know if it's the tyres or the suspension which gave me so much confidence in the corners , great torquey engine , I have to keep it under 6k revs , that's 80 in 6th until its run in , sounds great , 140 miles to a tank , a screen would improve it if doing lots of motorways or long distances , I would recommend foccers getting in touch with a dealer and booking their test ride .

Traded in the Guzzi for a Ducati Scrambler Icon .


Blimey, you didn't waste any time ;)
Was toying with getting a 250 to commute to work and keeping the Guzzi for summer , then looked at the XSR 700 , , but the ducati was only an extra £700 , I will post some pics when I collect it , they had a red one in the shop , but the yellow one was down the Bridgewater branch .

Fazer sold today , hope you enjoy her as much as I have Lloyd , I will miss her but at least I have the Guzzi to put a smile on my face . Going to get myself a 250 for the commute to work .


Thanks, the weather was quite nice when I left yours....until I hit the M4, then it absolutely pee'd it down and got very windy ALL the way back. It'll take me days to dry out!!. I look forward to reasonable weather so I can get out for a proper ride.
I would spray the chain with WD40 after riding in the wet, roll on the warmer drier weather .
