Having spent the last two-three weeks on less than amazing commutes, today I was able to really enjoy the bike, the road and the ride.
Despite being the Friday before half-term, once away from the large towns, the traffic levels weren't too bad. There were a few larger, slower vehicles around, but that's to be expected and I was able to dispatch them fairly quickly without ruining some of the great corners along my route.
Today's great ride wasn't the only fun I managed to have this week. As part of a communications campaign at work, I spent the day out on the Ducati riding around, with colleagues in their lorry, taking photos of them navigating tight streets. I can't really go into it more any than that, but needless to say, getting paid to ride my bike around was indeed as enjoyable as it sounded.
This Sunday Weymouth is hosting its annual beach race series, and it seems a really fitting way to celebrate this sites official 5th birthday. Back on 22nd October 2012, I started out with an idea, a lot of determination and a plan to build something that I enjoyed and was proud of. I feel like I've achieved a great deal with headbehindthebubble and now five years in, I think its time for some evolution to take place. I'm going to see where I can take the site, see if I can get myself further entwined into the motorcycle culture and to see if I can bring you, the readers, more interesting content.
For me the journey has just started and for those of you who have joined me along the way, thank you and lets see where this road leads us.
