    I went out on the NS400 this morning. It really is a hoot to ride. Does anyone know where I took this photo? I think it will be fairly easy for the guys/gals who live in East Yorkshire. That's the only clue I'll give, i.e. it's in East Yorkshire

    I think you took it about 12 foot from your bike. Do I win?

    Helmut is close,,but not quite awarded the (virtual) cigar. I'll leave it a while longer in case anyone else fancies a stab. BTW it struck me we could make a new thread. A picture of your bike next to a significant building or monument and we have to guess where it is. Where am I thread?

    Cracked it Tony.

    I was hard on Helmut to be honest, he did say Garton,. But it is sited on Garton Hill two or three miles outside Garton itself about halfway between Garton and Sledmere. Apparently you used to be able to go up to a viewing room inside, but its not open to the public anymore. Even so you do get great views across the Yorkshire Wolds from there.

    Here's another shot from roughly the same position taken a few years ago with another Honda I now no longer own. 20180503_114538.jpg

    And there I was thinking it was the Yorkshire Amalgamated Space Agency (YASA) latest attempt to land a rocket at the south pole of the moon.

    Today I have a day off work and the big yellow thing in the sky that I have a distant memory of being called “the sun” was out - so I had a nice 120 or so miles blast about on the Fireblade. Can’t say that the sun was a persistent presence and of course I got rained on briefly (wouldn’t be summer 2023 without, surely???) but it was a lovely trip out all the same. I am appalling at stopping for photos as I just like to keep going when I am enjoying a particular road or scenery - just got one when I stopped for a drink. I am VERY pleased to report that all wildlife steered clear of me today :laughing:.

    Lovely morning hooning around Down and the Mournes, bit misty round the mountains but dry and perfect temperatures of around 19c :cool:

    Being a 100+ miles up the road I decided to take the 'Wing today as several of us went to Cooter Brown;s Rib Shack in Jacksonville, Al today. Ribs were well worth the ride:cool:

    Time to investigate the proverbial British bike oil leak :rolleyes:
    The Armstrong mt500 leaks quite a bit from the front left of the engine, right where the primary filter is to add confusion, and visual inspection is limited. I narrowed it down to the clutch case gasket must be torn.
    To be fair, whoever has been in here previously simply didn't bother with a gasket at all :(
    Umm what had they been in here for?

    I think every bike you get your mitts on turns into a hooligan :laughing:.
