Had my first commute in some 8 weeks since my accident and what a joy. Roads a bit damp, but still 25 minutes quicker than the trains door to door!
Had a quick blat from SE2 to Chelmsford yesterday to get used to my “new” bike and what a joy the Sprint RS is. Smoother on the motorways than the VFR and with more grunt. Turns in quickly enough and I had the pegs down on a roundabout without trying too hard! In fact I was not trying to ground them, so it was a surprise!:w00t::w00t: Eeeek!
Packed my rain suit just incase it pours on the way home, but at least the rain held off for the ride in, which is grand. I am HAPPY!!
I loved the VFR (to bits too!) but am a small fellow at 196cms and around 115kgs. Just found that the Sprint has more room on it for my legs. Miss the fairing lowers on the VFR though, but in summer, I’ll be glad of that extra bit of air!
And a good evening to all as well! Had a great ride home. Had to remind myself that pedestrians really do not look to see what is coming, even a Triumph will full Race Can system… :D:D Had a hoot going through the Southwark Underpass, sounds absolutely brilliant!
