It’s winter solstice today so the shortest darkest day and the official start of winter :ermm:… but hey the days get longer from now on so it will soon be spring again :)… ah that early spring sunshine and then those long, long summer days… wonderful aye… I always feel spring has arrived when the frogs return to my pond :rolleyes:
As mentioned in a previous thread I go with the druids and had my solstaceing done already .
Here , Spring for me is when the cocoons that have been stored “here” in suburban garages all winter start to catch the first hint of heat and begin emerging. Till one sunny sunday … A mirical of nature … Out pops dry weather bikers … many different species the brightly coloured power rangers to the dark avenger with is chrome sexual display preened in the hope of attracting a mate … And “here” on the A4 we can see a relativley recent addition to this country … The “supermoto” recognisable away from the bike by the distinctive boots and beaked helmet .
Thank God for that. I’m having severe withdrawl symptoms. Haven’t hit the readline in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th while clutchless shifting and trying to leave everyone behind for months. I have been preparing in the gym so that I can still fit into my power ranger outfit in the spring though.
Haha, when I wrote “everyone” I was going to write Alex Gold but didn’t want to insinuate that either of us partake in motorcycle “sport.” Anyway now that that is clear, this year we can go on three beeps of the horn like the yanks do apparently. I don’t have a power commander but I think my bike will be finally run in this year and my speed hump is good for a extra mph. Game on.
