Best Wishes for 2014

Hogmanay 2013 and that's another year nearly over. I'd like to thank the readers of my blogs and wish you all a happy & healthy 2014.

Most bikers in the UK have their machines tucked up in the garage at this time of year. I'm one of the odd ones that keeps riding. Well, a little. I go to the shops etc and some short runs when possible. We have basically two types of winter weather - wind & rain or snow & ice. Its mostly been the former this year so riding has been possible, if a bit unpleasant, rather than dangerous.

During winter I use my Honda CBF250. Its light weight makes it ideal for roads that are wet and covered in mud & gravel. The FJs will make an appearance when the weather improves in April or maybe March if we're lucky.

None of the bikes have any maintenance or repairs planned so there aren't any "Tales from the Shed" in the pipeline, maybe I need a project.

I've no particular plans for the coming year bike-wise just more of the same. Riding the highways & byeways and bringing you photos & tales of anything interesting. Maybe more videos next year.

  1. Happy New Year to you & yours, Stuart. Hope to do a bit more riding in 2014, and I'll doubtless bump into you at some point. Keep up the good work.

  2. Happy New Years to all. Enjoy reading your blog, and 'traveling' your part of the world through your travels. Keep them coming.
