Out friend Ralph.. who has only just

passed his CBT came along for the day too ..which is some achievement ...It's only his second ride on the bike since passing...and he managed all the way up to Castle Stalker and back ..over 200 miles. We told him where we would be stopping along the way for meals etc. and he went at his own pace and joined us for the breaks...

Up at Castle Stalker .....Amateurcynic, Ralph and Sky...

Cheers mate ...It is so good to get out riding after 5 month's of winter weather .....

The temps were cool... probably a lot colder than your 'neck of the woods'.  It was 7C when we left and peaked at around 12C mid afternoon.

But the views were phenomenal thanks to the cool crisp air ...the pics don't do it justice - I thought my eyballs were going to melt with 'overload' it was so beautiful.

a 'good Friday'....ameutercynic, should be well made up that he caught some top weather..Where's he thinking of heading for? Well done to your mate too for doing the distance on his 125,definitely the best way to learn to ride.
