    Lovely today in South wales, just a pity I got my exhaust stripped off for a baffle change when they turn up

    Good you got out, disrupting the countryside. They were salting the roads on my way home, which is a bummer cause the Iron isn't going near salt. I usually start to get out on the bike usually around the time of the Scottish bike show as the roads get better.

    The M90 is an absolute cart track since the snow, it's better in the outside lane. Fife council just love to grit the roads. Hopefully from early March I'll start getting out again on the Iron. Any longer and I'll be making potato potato noises on my own.

    M77 is back to its farm track status. apparently the council reckon its cheaper to pay compensation to claims, rather than make the road repairs.

    despair of many scottish roads, they remind me of rural eastern europe 10 or so years ago (no offense to them). there really is no excuse for their state

    I remember the days when the Road Tax used to be called the Road Fund Licence, the money collected was used to fund regular resurfacing of our roads.

    Where does the money go now?

    The road outside my home hasn't been resurfaced for over 35 years, the council just fill in the potholes and within a few months the potholes are back again.

    I opened the garage door,took the cover off,said hello and gave her a stroke,put the cover back on closed the garage door and went and had a cup of tea. It's the thought that counts.

    Exactly what I thought.. first ride for many weeks of any distance and the short shots got on my pip.. even with ear plugs. So I was going to flog them and go back to slip ons, but after a night thinking on my rashness, I decided I love the look of them so bought some Q baffles for them... hope they please me. Luckily enough I had to strip exhausts off to fit some passenger footpegs also so worked out OK

    My interaction with my bike today was to wade through some snow to peer through a small gap in the garage and check it was still there!!
