What a Difference a Day Makes

02 May

What a difference a day makes. I may have sounded as if I enjoyed my first ride of the season yesterday but in actual fact there were bits of it that weren’t much fun. It must be coming on for a year since I rode the Gixxer and I was expecting too much to think I could just take up where I left off last summer.

Day 2 010

If truth be told I hadn’t gelled with the bike the way I expected to and didn’t think I would want to ride her again today. But – after an hour or two spent fettling the old girl I couldn’t wait to try again —

Day 2 008

so it was off to the hills for another go —

Day 2 006

The earky bonding sesh with the spanners had obviously worked for I was enjoying my ‘easy rider’ mode —

Day 2 018

and even found time to watch an aerial display by a pair of red kites – (there’s one taking a rest in the field bottom left)  —

Day 2 027

and pose by some roadside daffodils —

Day 2 032

But it wasn’t all about flower arranging and she did manage to loft the front wheel a time or two on the run home.

Day 2 024

It’s a poor workman who blames his tools so I might not stick my poor old gixxer on ebay anytime soon after all 🙂

Day 2 004

What a difference a day makes.
