Made the right choice for definite.

I had my first outing on the new bike this afternoon. Wonderful choice I,ve made buying this bike by the looks of it. The bike handles great and its powerful enough to knoch the socks off me too. ;-)

My beautiful Kwacker. (rock)

Defo, we need a new Itchy's Leap test pilot! (lol)

The cafe, is a bit shit to be honest. Fairground quality sausage, but it's close to my house. I live on West Road between the Cafe and the Park.

I'm very lucky, I'm literally 60 seconds away from some really decent roads. When I lived in London it was 30 minutes to an hour to get on anything enjoyable.

First bit of decent weather (dry and above 5C) I'm out on the bike!

Plus I'm going to organise some rides down to South Wales this year, Long Hill and the Peak are great but Carmarthenshire is a whole level up
