This is it, the eagle has landed, life begins anew...
Yes i took delivery of the blue beastie yesterday, and rode back from Peterborough in comfort and with great joy! Have to admit that at one point i found myself singing the words Nempnett Thrubwell to the tune of the Hallelujah Chorus - now that's a confession!
Rode it up to Ely Diocesan Office today for a Committee for Family and Social Welfare meeting of which i was vice chair - even on a motorbike there is no way to blast through a contra-flow, so ended up being late for the annual meeting!
It's great! I plan to go out for a quick visit to a local hostelry this evening, just for the joy of riding it again!
