loving this bike
« on: November 09, 2013, 02:04:26 PM »
been taking advantage of the last of the decent weather over the last month so been using my ZZR :002:  last week I fitted some day time running lights to the versys and give it a run out today to test the spots and shake a few cobwebs off, forgot why I bought this bike then after riding it today then I remembered :138: it's a bloody brilliant machine :002: go as far as saying it as nearly as good as my zzr :020: and despite what some think as far as looks go.. I think it looks dam good to :37:
looking dam good :002:

pesky car drivers should see me now :whistle:

swapped the mickey mouse handlebar switch that came with the spots for a waterproof push button switch that's neatly fits into the 12v accessory blank :002:

if things don't change.. they'll stay the same!

pending weather and time :002: would love to have a chat with you and rog but it's a 180 mile round trip for me just to get to the bridge and 99.9% is motorway :003:

Dave,
We live nearby you and me & the misses went to the bridge last Monday, had a great trip. As you say its about 190 miles return.
Took the M6 to the A59 and onto Gisburn before turning onto the A682 then the A65. Then into Settle on the B6480 and just after onto the B6479 to the Ribblehead viaduct. Then back to the A65 via Ingleton and onto the bridge. A brill route as slow or as fast as you like and a nice cafe stop on the A59, beyond the Salmesbury roundabout as you leave the 30's just beyond a static speed camera. (there is a male dummy strapped to a lamppost outside the cafe). We have similar running lights and boy do they clear lane 3 of the M6, especially if you wear a high viz!! I didn't spend much time on the motorway :007:
We returned via Arkholme, (turn right from the bridge, over the new bridge and next left) exiting near to the Crook of Lune caravan park, crossing the A683 and heading over Quernmore and back to the A59/ M6. The home leg is not a quick route, but gives a great view of Morecombe bay from the top of Quernmore  :2:
If you fancy a run up there, let me know.
