    Just spent a couple of hours on a motorway, what a boring waste of time, couldn't get home fast enough. Had to constantly keep backing off the throttle to stay slightly legal. Bonnies are a fish out of water here, couldn't wait to get on a twisty mountain road somwhere to make the ride more interesting, this was mind numbing cruiser territory.

    Onya Darty ! Does having the boss sitting up there (assumably, so she can belt you in the ear easier ?) make the handling a little flightly at all. Thinking if you hit any of that tar that seems to be lifting everywhere ?

    :eek: Riding is fine as long as she remembers to follow my lean. I am a bit more tentative with her on the back, but her enjoying the bike is well worth the focus.
    Helps her understand why I like taking off regularly for rides :cool:
    It was 20’ during our ride, so tar was fine.
    It did get up to 28’ later on

    A short ride to Bowness on Windermere. Very busy getting into the Lakes once I crossed the M6. Also very cold 4.5c was the best I saw 2c most of the time. Luckily on the way home most vehicles were southerners or at least going south so turned down the M6. The A65 home was very pleasant. Only about 3 hours in total but great to be out riding.

    A65 very pleasant :joy:
    Maybe back in the olden days with no speed cameras or unmarked police cars :confused: but certainly not how I'd describe it these days. Usually it's just a slow moving traffic queue with enough solid white lines to keep a Dulux factory employed.

    Two speed cameras both at the same place, Devils Bridge unless you count Kirkstall road in Leeds. No unmarked police cars, none, not one. Plenty of broken white line areas to allow overtaking. If you know what you are doing that is.
    Bowness on Windermere and back in just over 3 hours. That doesn’t sound like your A65 thoughts.

    Well at least we agree on something :blush:
    Our views of the A65 are very different.

    With you mentioning Kirkstall road we can't live very far apart. I'm about 2 miles from Squires cafe.

    Thanks Sandi T, nice to have the occasional half descent photo amongst a desperately dissapointing camera roll !
