Latest trip: Sunday 9th of July.

Trip from Hereford (England) to Abergavenny (Wales) and back, for the usual weekend Motorcycle meet-up!

A wonderful journey there and back, in nice warm sunshine!

About a 48 mile all-round trip. (None of the daft "Kilometre" malarkey!)

The return journey...>>>

No chatting and not much texting....Just wind in the hair, flies in the teeth... and engine noise!!

Very changeable weather lately, so any chance of some warm sunshine is quickly taken advantage of!

I hope you enjoy the trip around some English Countryside!

We are in the middle of Summer, and it's cold, wet, and miserable almost every day....

Our "Summer" has definitely gone walkabouts..... (as they say in Australia)...!

Fine weather Motorcycling is very difficult at the moment!

Paul....Dodging the rain, coming back from the shops! ... :unsure: ...!

Hello, 2-Wheeled Chums!.... :D ...!

Last Saturday's Trip in the sunshine (rare) from Hereford to the Royal Forest of Dean (Gloucestershire) For one of my lovely Lads to replace my front brake disc and brake pads, and service the brake callipers!

The original 1996 disc was badly worn and warped!

Monday Afternoon, warm October sun, a high of 64F, wearing my checkered cotton shirt, sleeveless Levi jacket, Café Racer neckerchief, fingerless studded gloves, leather boots, goggles, open face helmet and a big grin on my face, for a shopping trip to Sainsbury's for a Beef Black Bean Sauce with egg fried sauce tray and a bottle of Australian Red for my Supper, on my trusty chromium-plated, shiny, Honda Rebel cruiser motorcycle, with a wave to everyone on my journey...and getting a wave back!.... :D ...!

What better excuse to ride a Motorcycle! .... :clap: ....!

Paul....Bike it....You'll like it! .... :D ...!

Last Sunday's 100+ mile round trip.

Returning back home after the usual Sunday Biker meet-up at Abergavenny in Wales.

Leaving the Royal Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire for the ride back home to Hereford in Herefordshire.

Making the most of the warm weather before the Winter sets in!

Hello, all my Flight Sim Chums, and Motorcycle Chums.... :D ...!

I haven't been posting very much stuff on my various Flight Sim Forums lately!

After zillions of years, I have been exploring the World (mostly North America and California, San Francisco and Flower Power), every day, in the various versions/incarnations of Flight Simulators since the heady days of 1995 onwards.

...nowadays, since my various You-tube motorcycling video days, from 2015, I have been spending more and more time exploring the countryside at ground level, with the help of all my motorcycling chums, and the comfort of their Harley Davidson motorcycle cruisers.

Its a different sort of exploration, and in some ways, more REAL!

So, there you go, Lads and Lassies, explore the landscape at a low level with we; "two-wheeler" types!...>>>

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCp5lKG ... 9JA/videos

..no Radial, Jet, Turbine, etc, engines involved....:wink2: ...!

...just simple, air-cooled, piston engines, with carburettors, (like a Cessna 150?), and occasionally a kick-starter! ....:rolleyes: ...!

...its all about having fun...whatever you are doing! .... :rockon: ...!

Paul.... :lol: ...!

The other alarming face of our favourite Motorcycle activity and fun!...>>>>

The nasty side!

http://kron4.com/2017/11/20/hells-angel ... onspiracy/

Every day I converse with all my Internet Biking Chums from all around the World, and this is the sort of deplorable news which casts alarm and suspicion upon all we Family Bikers (mostly Harley Davidson etc, Cruisers) and our machines!

It is a blot on all our characters as we enjoying the delights of exploring the scenery all around us as we travel either solo or with our wives and girlfriends (husbands and boyfriends for all the many Lady Bikers!).

It takes all sorts of people, but these are the sort of people of which we would rather not be associated with!.... :twisted: ....!

On a lighter note!.... :D .....

The late November Weather is still holding up (warmish!) in England, so I am taking advantage of it and still recording my Motorcycle trips around my County before the Winter snow and ice sets in.... to slow things down somewhat!

There you go, all my friends. Some recent biking fun and frolicks!...>>>

Now that it's coming up Mid Winter here in England and we don't get much chance of warm, comfortable Motorcycle rides for a while, (too long!), it's time to fire up; "Youtube" and watch folks from other (warmer) countries enjoying themselves on two-wheels! ... :rockon: ...!

In this case, its the awesome wonderful Motorcycle Ladies of New Zealand....>>>

...and a trip to Thunder Beach!

A Happy New Year to all my Motorcycle Chums!.... :groupwave: ...

...and also my many Chums who are unfortunate in not having a Motorcycle.... :( ....!

Its a brand new year for we two-wheelers with some of us braving the cold of Winter!

However...

I girded my loins last Thursday and braved the results of the Atlantic storm Eleanor, wheeled out my trusty machine and had a fantastic time in the slightly warmer weather....
..... battling against the wind....
...and at one point being assisted by it to reach astronomical road speeds.... < 60-65MPH...Woo-Hoo!.... :bow: ...!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xqrb3R4xrk

Daisy and I had a great time. All we need now is for Spring, and much warmer weather to appear, and we will be touring the countryside again....

...with the wind in my hair, and flies in my teeth...(and Daisy's headlamp glass).

More videos to come as the weather gets warmer...we need warmth!

Paul.... :D ....!

The lot....so far...>>>

Ta, Dean!..... :D ...!

All we Upper Hemispherical Motorcyclists in England and the USA and Canada are suffering from the Chill of Winter now, and most have parked up their Bikes until the Spring arrives!...(They have also got Motor Cars).

Me?...I have to keep riding, whatever the weather, 'cos my "Daisy" is my only means of daily transport...whatever the weather... :rolleyes: ....!

This time of the year, with slippery roads, I am grateful for the low seat height of my; "cruiser" motorcycle, compared to my Super-Sports Motorcycles!

...not so far to fall!

(Been there...got the Tee-Shirts!)... :( ....!

Taking the riding very carefully now... ;) ...!

Take care, all!

...and keep the shiny side uppermost!

Paul.... :D ...!

P.S...Ta for the Subscription to my Youtube Bike Channel, Dean! You will notice that we, like you in NZ, the Ozzies, the Indians, and the Japanese, drive/ride on the right side of the road...the Left-Hand Side!!....LOL...!
The snag is, you all use Centigrade, Kilograms, and Kilometers; instead of Fahrenheit, Pounds and Ounces, and Miles, like myself and good Queen Victoria...(and my American Chums).....LOL...!
