This summer has been rather a pleasant one, lots of warm dry days with bright sunshine, just the type of days you like to ride your bike in.
Recently I’ve not ridden as much, a 2 mile commute with the effort of getting all the gear on, riding for 5 minutes to then take it all off again didn’t appeal as much, but as I was working at Brent Cross an 8 mile commute was more worth while when the sun came out to play.

Then, as my Varadero went in for it’s 16,000 mile survey the lent me a Honda CB1000R once again. This is the bike I used for a day 3 years ago and it pursuaded me to move up to a 1000cc bike.
