A Bank Holiday, A Full Tank And A Few Hours To Myself

Wifey was working and I wasn't, our son was out with his mates and the sun was shining. A pretty rare combination in my world so I made the most of it and got out for a 100 mile circuit taking in some of the delightfully green and undulating countryside of Salisbury Plain in central southern England.
The highlight was whilst I was stopped at a viewpoint munching a chocolate bar, the RD owners club chose the same layby to take a break during their group ride-out. The crackle of two-stroke twins certainly took me back a few years, although one of their members did tell me that it's a rare run that doesn't have one of their bikes breaking down!

Greetings Keith,

Looks like lovely countryside, Keith! Wonderful...

How fun to see the RD guys! I'll bet that sounded terrific when they were all revved up together.
