Hopefully on Saturday I'll be taking the bike out for a spin, as the title says though its the first ride for quite some time.

Anyone got any ideas for a route? I'm thinking either Whitby or Helmsley, both roads i know fairly well and have a good combination of corners to help me rattle some rust off my riding.

Where ever you go watch out for the old bill, there are everywhere at the moment. Unmarked cars and bikes.

Not a million miles away then. If I head to Whitby I go along the Moors road but come back along the coast through Saltburn.

Right now it's a massive coin toss as to where to go. I have been ordered to take it easy until I have found my feet with it again, which I will, but if you talk to Boycie he'll tell you that my confidence comes flooding back really quickly (he was there for my first ride back after braking my knee)

Just done my first ride in about 18 months (excluding two trips for MOTs at 5 miles each).

Been out for about two hours cant believe how rusty I am but also how much still seemed familiar. Must have been concentrating hard tho cos I'm absolutely knackered now.

Worth every second and every discussion about keeping the bike for the last 12 months.:grin::grin::grin::grin::grin:

Eh Up folks!

Groucho. - After redundancy in Dec 2010 and a series of crap jobs paying next to nowt I had to spend money whereI needed it so the bike stayed parked. Much to Sharon's dismay as she wanted me to sell it. Now I'm flogging cars for a living at least I have some spare so the bikes back out.

Custard - First thing I did this morning was check the holiday callendar to see if I can make Scropton but it looks like its booked up :sad:

Pa - If I said I will soon change my name to NoLongerHenpecked would it tell you a story without being too cryptic?

Hope everyone is well and I may join you at Guys soon. If you all still go and I can remember the directions lol.
