Every single day Like cold machines (lyrics) Monday 10th December 2007. The weather has turned cold. Within 5 miles my fingernails feel like they are about to fall off – the pain is awful. After 30 miles it begins to ease as they become numb. Traffic bottlenecks at Coryton and the mirrors once again...

Hey Kat, However and with that said there seems to be a little HD envy from time to time. Not by many and not that often. I don't see the metrics getting bashed but the HD do take a little unwarranted and unsolicited negativity. Its lonley at the top :laughing: To me one of the stregnths of this si...

All the leaves are brown. One day last a week a leaf got caught in the vortex between me and the windshield – it floated around for a few seconds before a change in air pressure caused it to vanish under my right arm being left behind on the M4. The sight reminded me of the scene in American Beauty ...

Apart from getting wet - I actually was forced for a few minutes to ride with my visor down because of the rain - eyes stinging - bike looked more like a hydro foil. Boots dry Gloves almost Jacket still some way to go. Had a party for Kai's 6th birthday - will be eating cake for a few more days. Ade

Well the weather has not been quite as cold - Tuesday 20th homeward absolutely peed down. What is it about other road users when you pass that the right leg adopts a mind of its own and involuntary depresses the accelerator.
