At 1020 this morning I became the ex-owner of the Rocket III Roadster known a Red Pepé. He has gone to new owners who will appreciate him and maybe ride him a lot more than I was able to.
I wish him and them well.
Au revoir mon ami!
After the problems of last weekend when TomTom decided to have a bit of a loon, I managed to visit only three of the waypoints.
So I have had to re-plan for the last four places I need to complete the challenge. Finding U isn't the easiest in Kent. Finding one on a main road is even harder. Many of the tracks and shitholes I had to go down on Sunday aren't for the Rocket.
|The last four? I hope!!|
The best laid plans of mice and men. Unfortunately there is a balancing act to be done as a married man with a dog.
I sometimes envy people that on a whim, tog up, and then go for a ride all day on their expensive motorcycle. My brother for instance. He regularly plans trips with a mate that take three or four weeks in the summer before the school holidays make hotels and accommodation too expensive. I can't do that.
So when "real life" gets in the way, then the bike trips have to take a back seat. Don't get me wrong. I like going out in the car with wife and dog to places of interest or just to the White Cliffs for a cake and coffee and walk with Reggie. But. Sometimes I want to get my gear on and go for a ride.
Last Sunday the "Family Paul" won out. Hopefully tomorrow, June 6th and of course the 77th Anniversary D-Day, I can get out and do the trip around the county and get the "Cup of Tea Challenge" chalked off. I need to ride the £15000 worth of bikes locked up in the garage! Thank god for Abus U-locks and chains!
I made small change to the "F" place and have made it Folkestone Invicta FC rather than Folkestone West railway station!
