Blowing away the cobwebs.

The weather forecasts we have had since October have all been wrong, but yesterday because it suited Jon's plans we decided to go along with the prediction of a nice afternoon - relatively speaking.

Over the past few months Jon has been tootling in his shed with his winter project....he turned a 98 Honda fireblade into a streetfighter. Basically this means he changed it from a sportsbike into a sit up and beg type.

So we tried it out yesterday......Mark our neighbour came along for the ride....

We had a coffee in Whitby

then went over Pickering moor, through to Thornton-le-Dale.

We came home over Blakey, passing through Hutton-le-Hole, Blakey, Casteton and Danby.

Surprisingly I wasn't too cold - but I was glad when we arrived back home as my hands were just starting to get cold......but we were all well wrapped up!

The bike performed well but is now in pieces again as it needs something fiddling with the cables and mirrors need fitting.

I was glad we had a run out yesterday - far colder today and many parts of the North East have snow.......we seem to have escaped far!
