Surprised to see this in the UK, even more surprised that a certain coffee chain hasn't complained about it and made them change the name

Out in the backwoods where I like to ride electric trains are seldom seen

Must be real fun riding in the rain with no front mudguard

My first bike was a new 250 G5 back in 1975, I have never seen one modified like this before

The obsession with no front mudguard continues

I am seeing a few of these white horses in various locations lately, this one just south of Marlborough

This was last weekend and a sweltering hot day too

A new addition replacing my Indian built Honda CBF 125

The difference in quality between this Thai built bike and its predecessor is amazing, a much better bike.
Avon have a tyre for it, Michelin give two choices so plenty of options for some better rubber when replacement time comes.
I have already found out the Vee Rubber tyres don't like wet manhole lids much

It was certainly a bit crisp early yesterday morning Craig, my fingers were cold which is something I have not been used to this year.
I had a very enjoyable 200 mile ride out through Hampshire, Berkshire, Wiltshire and Oxfordshire though despite the cold morning and rapidly cooling afternoon

Yup, it's been a fantastic Autumn (Indian Summer), makes being stuck here longer this year more bearable.
Are you going to go 'Thai Style' on the new Honda?

Pleased to now be able to say 'I agree with you Captain'.
Some superb riding roads in that area, even on an old Harley! (thanks Tim)
Lots of fascinating history around there too. Love it.
