I thought it was high time that I broke the K11 out for ride.
The wife and myself have just done a 90 mile run around the Derbyshire dales and now it's time for a bath, a coffee and then back in the garage.
If the weather's OK tomorrow, we'll be out again.

Hooray for Spring!! Very Happy

I've spent many happy days in the dales when I lived in Derby but that was 30 years ago. I wouldn't mind a run around them on the bike still ! #Jealous

Nice one Mike,
I did a similar thing myself yesterday...a couple of hundred miles....just to knock the cobweb's off
and out again today with vintage club for another 100 miler

Great weather thankfully so let's make the most of it ;-)


Safe riding

Today after a couple of hours (it felt like four) tidying some area's of our garden, we were out for a very swift 70 miler with a coffee break at the Old Smithy at Beeley on the outskirts of the Chatsworth estsate with a nice bit of cake sneaked in. I know it's not huge miles we've covered but around the Derbyshire dales on the twisty switchbacks, it's still a good run out.
My wife can't understand why I also have a new R1200RS in the stable because I'm always saying how much I enjoy riding my older BM's. I think it's just because I'm just greedy. Very Happy

Has anyone else had a good run out this weekend?

Took my K75S out today for the fourth time this year and did over 100 miles. I have nearly 400 miles on so far which is very unusual as normally this time of year we are still under a foot or more of the white stuff. I have had a bike out twice in February and twice in March.

It has been a lovely winter so far, especially since last year we had the pleasure of being on the receiving end of over 5 meters of snow and 2 1/2 months of temperatures staying below -10C.

My son phoned me about 11.30 yesterday.....wanted me to help him scrub in the new tyres get put on his VF800. Always happy to oblige, off we went about 2pm, nice trip around the coast, a good fish and chips on the water's edge and a nice run home.

Not too many miles as I am nursing a dud rear shock just now so it kept him cool, but no convincing him to join the Eccentrics next weekend.....'350 miles in one day is too much'.

Yep, camping just south of Kings Lynn in Norfolk this weekend and called in on a BMW club Midland section meet by Rutland Water on the way home yesterday.

Met up with 'Mike D' at the BMW club gathering, which, probably because it was sunny and dry, brought out a good selection of bikes.

Either Rhyader, (Wales) or Naburn (Yorkshire) for next weekend's camping........decisions, decisions!

Paul.

Rutland Water is a really nice place......some lovely memories of there!!

Camping soon I hope, was busy this weekend on other forum related matters which will reveal themselves in due course.
