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 .

Support Police shoot to kill?  Be very careful what you wish for. The IPCC investigation will probably find (again) that the victim posed no threat at the time. Of course the police make mistakes. What they are not good at is admitting them.
I didn't say I support the Police shoot to kill policy , the Police carry out the orders of the liberal elite who feed us the bullshit that we live in a free society .

The times we live in unfortunately , due to the increased threat of terrorism if the Police think you have a gun they will shoot to kill .

Took advantage of the dry weather this morning and rode it to Minehead , stopped at Riders of Bridgewater for a coffee on the way down , such a great bike to ride , great for overtakes and twisty roads as  its so small and light , Got home just before the rain started  .

Took the Fazer this morning instead of the Guzzi  , rode it to Weymouth , stopped and had a coffee and dried off  , got soaked between Yeovil and Dorchester , then went onto Lyme Regis , stopped for another coffee , looked at the Map and decided to head for the Motorway as it was getting late, got soaked between Lyme regis and Honiton . Got as far as Taunton , then had to come off the M5 as it was blocked by the Police due to an accident , as Taunton looked snarled up with traffic headed towards Yeovil and rode home via Shepton Mallet and the Old Bristol Road , got home at 17.30  , just in time to get ready for my Night shift at the University .

I am voting to leave ,but  IMO   the remain camp will win by 5% due to the amount of undecided voters who will  more than likely , not want change .

I have just replaced my rear with a T30 , so far so good . I have a Pr3 on the front, I wasn't impressed with the wear on the rear Pr3 ,  seemed to wear quickly towards the end .
