Saturday - Spent a day at the Rotor Adventures having some adventure bike training with Dakar racer Stan Watt.

Dropped my new bike twice, once on each side. No real damage.

Got told "You ride that thing good" by Stan. Plenty happy with that as an assessment and certainly the most glowing reference I have ever received for my riding.

Legs hurt for about two days due to my complete lack of fitness.

Still last Sept. Have a test ride tomorrow.

Comparing a triple black 1200GSA with a Tiger 900 GT (see what the engine is like).

Deposit still on a Tiger Rally Pro but no sign of it yet.

Have fun gents.

Today!!!! Hurrah.

Reporting back I won't be buying a GS. Horrible big heavy thing that for a 4 year old bike with 14000 miles on it was not worth the £12500 asking price. Yes it was super smooth once going but a complete wanker of a bike in traffic and I kept smacking my shin on the RH cylinder head as I came to a stop. Stupid design...

The deposit on the Rally Pro that "will be with you by 4 June sir" has been reclaimed after "it probably won't be with you until next month and even then, I can't be sure".

Lucked in big time by going back to the dealer I just missed one with due to faffing a month ago and finding he has a cancelled order bike in stock. It's now mine. Better deal than the last one too.

Days of happy.

Saturday. Took the SX to chum my mate to Shirlaws Aberdeen as he was going to pay for his new bike. We took the long scenic route, Crieff, Dunkeld, Blairgowrie,  Glenshee.  We never got to Aberdeen as my mate got a holed radiator on his ZZR1400, at Kincardine o Neil.  He came home on a AA recovery truck.

Last night. SX to the mates, to give him a hand to fit the repaired radiator. Scotrad had managed to repair the radiator. £20 compared to a new one at £700. Fitted and ran up to temperature. All good.

How was it ?

Great fun. We've got a bit of a gang together comprising a few Mcnninjas members..... and they've all bought track bikes now.

I've even persuaded Cos to come to Cartagena with me in October...... booked, packed.... ffff
