Take today for example. Meeting Lucinda for coffee in a local town I took the bike, not because it was easy, but because I just wanted a little ride. Nothing big, nothing clever, I just wanted to ride.
As the days draw closer (the clocks go back an hour here in the UK in under a month) it will be increasingly harder to get out on two wheels. Soon I'll just be another light in the almost endless tirade of headlights that make up the commute. Riding for lost distances in the dark is never nice and at times is very dangerous.
What I don't want to happen is I park the bikes in the garage, plug in the Optimate and put a cover over them until spring. I fully intend to ride as and when I can all through the winter as I have done in previous years. However, unlike those, it probably won't be for commuting. Which is annoying.
I managed to watch The War 4 Four, the documentary/film made by BSB which covered the 2013 season. I've put together a little review which can be found under Motorcycle Media. Not terrible it has to be said.
