Go east young man – well that’s what the weather forecaster said but I always have great difficulty in persuading my bike to head in that direction.
So – instead of reaching Kielder today as planned, I had a late start and arrived in sunny Portpatrick on the west coast facing Ireland around five o’clock —
There was a chilling breeze off the sea so I didn’t hang about long.
A quick pose for the camera and that was it —
The gixxer showing the benefit of my few hours spent fettling suspension and suchlike was spinning along nicely and with a following breeze the run back home was done in jig time even if I did take a detour into the forestry —
and down the Dee estuary for more pics —
It hasn’t been the best of weekends weatherwise or for that matter healthwise but I’m pleased to say I got myself together in time to catch the late Bank Holiday sunshine —
