    Out around the Local area

    After spending about 3hrs cleaning, and refitting the DRL's back on, following replacing the header pipes, I took it out for a little run out, about 1.5hrs to check all was okay. Anyway, I ended up at Stourport on Severn, a lovely little town, I just had to take some photos of the bike, and another love, water and boats.

    How beautiful is the Wilko motorcycle. Only thing is, it looks weird without the saddlebags.

    I am very struck by the satellite dish of the house in front of the first photo. (the angle of inclination). In Norway they focus on the ground and in Spain they focus on the sky.

    digital, I have to remove them because of where the bike lives, I just can't be bothered to keep fitting them, hence the little bag on the rear seat, pluss it saves on a bit of weight, and the satellite dish, it's the cowl on top the chimney that's fitted to the narrowboat, but I guess you know that already lol

    I understand Wilko, I think I remember you passed a photo of where you keep the bicycle and there is little space to park. The only thing to travel with the motorcycle is to carry the saddlebags, since in case the motorcycle falls.

    It always protects the legs and it is easier to lift the motorcycle off the ground.

    Correct, I understand parabolic since I dedicate myself to it and for the geographical sutuacion it is like that. Then I look at it.

    Quiet right digital, my bike has to live outside, covered over, it's a fight to keep it looking good, but it always puts a smile on my face to see it clean, and subsequently to ride.

    Every night I cover it so that it does not catch a cold.
