Well not been out on Olive much this year, Steve takes her to work every now and again to keep her in running order. Decided to have a little run out on her today to a local classic car and bike show, quite cold and windy but only a 40 mile round trip so not so bad. Think she could do with a service before the winter so that will be on the to do list.
We came back home and decided to go out on the Yamaha Fazer 600 we got last week. I am hoping to be able to ride it as well as Steve but am going to take my time getting used to the weight and handling of it. The brakes are so sharp so just a little start and stopping on the driveway for now. Then we went out for a long ride so I could get used to pillion riding on it, the foot pegs are a lot higher than the VFR750 so a different technique needed for getting on and off gracefully! Great fun bike though and it really gave my arm muscles a work out with the acceleration. It needs the near suspension tweaking though as I was off the pegs and seat quite a lot. Steve checked the setup when we got back and it is on the hardest setting with hardly any travel. Looking forward to the next trip out once it is adjusted. Forecast is for warmer weather next week around 17/18 degrees so if the rain holds off we will get out again.
