All that sunshine going to waste this evening – so out came the RE350 Classic ..
My Oxford Products Sports Pannier Bags fit just fine and don’t look out of place on the wee Enfield. I bought them almost twenty years ago for a trip to Dubrovnik on my XJR1300 – the first of many jaunts to the Balkans over the next few years —
This bridge over the River Almond where the bike was posing earlier this evening takes me even further back. It’s seventy seven years since I was picking tatties with my mum in a nearby field. I remember it as a wet boggy place and the poor Clydesdale horses would sink to their haunches trying to pull loaded carts in the mud.
