And unable to post anything on here does that mean I can have all your bikes ?
There is some well sorted Italian and Austrian metal out there that would look good in my yard !

Of course it could be that all the others are out having adventures on their bikes?

So why aren't they boasting about it?
Everybody chills at the end of the day, riding kit off,pours a big glass of beer/wine/gin/vodka/petrol......
and then boasts about it !

I've done shamefully little bike riding this year, due to a combination of factors. Earlier in the year the weather wasn't great and when it cheered up I was up to my arse in brick dust, hammer drills, 15 and 22mm pipe and fittings...

For the best part of the last two months I've been doing all the prep work for a new central heating boiler, with the added complication that all the pipes have to be buried in the wall behind where the boiler will be mounted, and line up with the row of pipe tails (6 of the buggers) that are presented on the boiler. I'm just about ready for the C/H engineer to arrive for final fitment (next Friday) just as the weather starts to get cooler and rainier.

But I'm off to France in a couple of weeks, and the KTM will be coming with me and the cat in the van, so all is not lost...

Oh well, if I must



Been up to my ears in work recently but we did manage 7 nights in France last month First time touring on the KTM and what a fabulous ride

Did a nice round trip: Reims, Dijon, Valence, Montpellier, Brive la Gaillarde, Le Mans and Camiers before heading back to Oxford.

Managed to avoid peage most of the way and stuck to the twisty bits. Did make an exception to finally go across the Millau Viaduct but that was worth it!

Lots of long lunch stop, good hotels, good food all the way round and a bike that didn't miss a beat. Comfortable, huge tank range, insanely fast when needed and just as happy on the motorway as it was on (what appeared to be) a goat trail that the satnav had listed as 'a bit twisty'...

I'd had the Cat replaced with a link pipe but have now been tempted by a Scorpion Red Power exhaust so that's on its way to me (along with a K&N filter) so the bike will need remapping when that goes on. Apart from that, the handguards, touring screen and gtank lock bag, I've hardly spent a penny on the bike!

Sounds great! Makes me nostalgic for the trips I took to Normandy and Brittany on various bikes/trike. In fact the first trip on my little Yam RXS100 stroker was how I came to join RiderSite! (a long ago incarnation of). Kwackerz saw something I'd written about it and invited me to join. I think that trip was in 1999!

Shitty summer, looking after old people, becoming an international radio superstar and general apathy has significantly limited my mileage on the Falco this year
