Anyone for a Spin?

As soon as the snow and ice melts and there is some traction we will be back on two wheels. Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul.
The temperature here is about +2-degrees Celsius today (see in the margin >>>).
In South Africa the temperature is in the 30s I believe. In two weeks or thereabouts it will be heat and dust for me. I'll let you know which conditions are preferable when (if) I return to the land of snow & ice.

Hi John, Cars Moving bodies as averse to motorcycles moving souls. You old poet you. Here's another for you. "A motorcycle functions entirely in accordance with the laws of reason, and a study of the art of motorcycle maintenance is really a miniature study of the art of rationality itself." ~Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

Have a safe and exhilerating trip, Michael and Anita

Hi John, dying to hear about your trip and see some photos and how nice the warm weather in Africa was. One forgets very quickly. Hope you had a wonderful trip and looking forward to your wonderful English weather! Sue and Geoff, Canada

Thanks for your comments Michael & Anita and Sue & Geoff.

This ride was possibly the best I have done - and there have been some good ones.

The bike never missed a beat, the accommodation was always good, the fuel about 65p/litre, and the food excellent. A few Castles or Windhoek lagers in the evening didn't detract from the trip.

There were no security issues. In fact everyone I met or came into contact with was kind and gentle.

Thanks for your comments.
