    We didn't actually stay there as the wind had suddenly got up so moved on without leaving the bikes unattended. It was surprising how many parking notices were pinned up and a camera keeping record of everything.

    That is why I was asking mate. You might get away with it if you only stayed for a couple of minutes.

    As the Sun had his hat on today I thought I'd don my helmet and have a run out into Lincolnshire and visit some old angling haunts I used to fish as a kid with my Dad.
    Any keen freshwater fishermen from Yorkshire or Lincolnshire should recognise Five Mile House on the Witham although it's changed completely from the early '70's.......

    The path next to the bike is the old railway line. When the trains were running the vibration moved you around on your fishing basket!:joy:

    The plan was to to call in at the Pyewipe Inn on the Foss Dyke canal for refreshments until.........

    Bad luck mate. It really pisses me off that people can leave nails and screws lying in the road.

    This is the bike I'm stranded on with a puncture. I've ridden the dirt bike home twice, once with a flat front and then with a rear thanks to rim clamps and I carry a tubeless repair kit when out on the ZZR. Now I'm back home I can fit a new tube easy enough but it's not a roadside job.

    55AF0FBB-B290-443E-BD4C-815422C4A894.jpeg

    That's a 19mm screw. The tyre tread depth 8mm, + 3mm carcass so I don't think even a 4mm HD tube would have saved me.

    I was foolishly bragidocious today about how few punctures I'd suffered over 50 years of biking, 2 or 3. Guaranteed I'll have a series of deflationary incidents now I've said that..

    Messing about on a sunny Sunday. From the Irish Sea at Walney Island to the Lakeland fells. Not a bad place to live :grinning:

    @Helmut Visor and I had a nice trip out today (his bike of choice today was the Nightstorm). We went to the Oily Rag Co in Gloucester for a coffee and had a nice chat with a few other bikers there, on to Bourton - On - The - Water so a nice ride into the Cotswolds, then back via the A44 with a final stop at Dom's Bike Stop before heading home. The photography was sadly neglected today, but we have a few of our second coffee stop....

    Stopped half way during today's ride to capture the view between Tapalpa and San Gabriel
    The mountain in the background is the highest peak in the north of México, 4000+ meters
    It is called Nevado de Colima

    Nope, not at this point on this ride day. What you can't see in the photo is that we each have a beer in our hands. :grinning: It was 5 o'clock somewhere. And we were there.

    @Armando Morales

    Wow, what a spectacular view, Armando! And your post was my official "forum learning" for the day. I didn't know what the tallest peak in Mexico is. Well, actually you said in the north of Mexico. Is there a mountain in Mexico that's higher than Nevado de Colima?

    After the April weather had us again the complete weekend in the grip, we finally managed on Sunday afternoon in dry weather with our Bonnies to turn a small round. The end was then in our favorite ice cream store. But because we had to go to an appointment at a friend's house at short notice, we had a little more time in the ice cream store. Therefore, we treated ourselves each after a cone of ice cream, mine is always the extra-large, in front of the ice cream store, then another delicacy with coffee.
    My wife had "Eispalatschinken", is made from pancake dough, and I an "Eisgermknödel", looks like a dumpling, but consists of milk ice cream with plum filling and warm vanilla sauce.
    So tasty you can also bridge an unplanned waiting time.

    My extra-large cone:

    WOW! Pico de Orizaba is 18,880 feet! And the others aren't far off that. I had no idea, Armando. I have a friend who used to do a lot of mountaineering / climbing...nearly all the world's most difficult and highest peaks. He and a close girlfriend of mine are now dating so I'm sure I'll see him one of these days. I'll have to ask him which, if any, of the high peaks in Mexico he has climbed.
