After having a slight wardrobe malfunction en-route (basically my buff slipped down from across my nose) which required a extremely brief stop at Fleet Services, the Fireblade saw 27000 miles on the odometer just as I passed J3 of the M3.
Since buying the bike back in 2014, I've really been racking up the miles and as I look towards the summer of 2016, the 'Blade is slowly working it's way into my heart. Could it be the bike to bike on my Lands's End to John O'groats run?
The question is, will a new biking love of my life wave at me from afar, drawing me away? Time will tell.
At the weekend with nothing much to do, I did something a bit silly. That, ladies and indeed gentlemen, was firing up the Ducati. Having been on my Oxford battery charger all winter, she fired first time and bloody hell what a racket! Even though it was gone lunchtime, I should really apologise to the neighbours.
I took a little poodle around my cul-du-sac, nothing special, but enough to get the bike moving. It felt good to be on it again and I'm looking forward to the first proper ride out in Spring proper. Its such a good bike and worth every penny that I've spent on it. Speaking of which, I need some more fasteners.
