Welcome to the forum.  :cheers

I think a lot will be up for a rideout as soon as the weather eases off.

Cabin fever is most definitely settling in.  :banghead :glum :sado

Just be careful of the wind. There have been some strong gusts lately. They make the ride interesting, but not always in a good way!

Actually got the bike keys in hand early this morning. Then all hell broke loose weather wise.
What a bloody week to take off work ffs.

Couldn't have put it better myself, I haven't ridden for a few weeks now, withdrawal symptoms have well and truly set in.  :glum  Fingers crossed for Sunday, I need to get some miles in, even if it's just to the West End Cafe and back.

I've been feeling like the world is against me recently.

Everytime I even think of pulling the bike out it starts to rain. Not only that, the gales are ridiculous, and its not even from the sprouts anymore!

Two more days off work remaining, but today I sit here and can hear the rain outside so not very optimistic!

Actually managed to get for a few hours today. Got drenched on the way home. But I don't mind that so much.
Had a bacon butty and a coffee in the Owls. No bikes at all at the West End. Only 4 at Ians.
Met a tidy fella from Swansea riding a 1200 Tenere. We both came back over the Blacks. Could hardly see your hand in front of you face it was so misty.
Nice to get out though.

Tomorrow looking terrible weather as well. I think it's the first Christmas since I started riding that I haven't gone out once on the bike.  :glum
