    Had a little ride round the Peak District this afternoon. Picked up a steak pie from a bakery in Stalybridge, wedged it in front of the handlebars, then rode on for about six or seven miles to a lay-by. The pie was lukewarm but by 'eck it wur reet gud. You can see the bag containing the pie in the first picture.

    Agree New Forest is a great place to bimble around in. Took my CB1100 out for one such short bimble on Wednesday (Bashley/Brockenhurst/Sway) - first time out on it for about 10 weeks.

    Well, as it happens forest is not actually a word for areas of woodland in English.That's a wood. It came into use after the Norman conquest and they imported the word forêt.

    "forest was first introduced into English as the word denoting wild land set aside for hunting without the necessity in definition of having trees on the land."

    The New Forest was originally a royal hunting park. :)

    I got the bike on the road today and out for a 5 mile run for the first time since I bought the bike 3 1/2 years ago.

    I am very pleased with the way it ran and still have enough things need doing to keep me busy. It runs, idles, pulls, changes gears well and the other systems are operational too.
