Today I took advantage of the decent weather and had myself a little ride out to the Goodwood Breakfast club at Goodwood Race Circuit in Sussex. It took me around 90mins to get there via the most direct route with no traffic and I was happy to see a few friendly faces when I arrived. As the 1098s is still poorly, I was on the Blade again and despite it feeling a bit alien at the start of the week, it now feels like a comfy pair of shoes. I still need/want to do a few things and last week I ordered up some Stomp Grips to help grip the tank with my legs. Still on the list are different exhaust, some braided brake lines and some different tyres. The Metzlers that can with the bike are disappearing fast as the compound is extremely soft.
Nice bike ride to have a nice breakfast in the company of friends whilst looking at classic cars. What's not to like?
My name is Matt Brown and I'm a UK journalist formerly based in London, but now calling the South of England home. I've been riding bikes since 2007, but got hooked straight away. Nothing gives me the feeling of freedom, even when stuck in a city. In 2010 I became a RoSPA gold rider, but when it comes down to it, I'm Just a normal man, riding his bikes as often as he can.
