I’ll admit it… i’ve been more than a bit useless for a while – had a spell where I’d just nothing to say, so stepped away from this blog for a couple of days.
But, I suppose there’s always time for a catch-up post…

Very enjoyable – in a slightly nadgery and worrying way owing to the Sammy Slicks that are fitted… they’re not bad on tarmac, and i’m sure they’d be lovely on dry gravel roads, but on wet leaves. they do tend to leave you with your arse looking like a cooking apple…

Thought i’d better get the “beauty shots” in before taking it out for an inaugural ride – mainly as the roads out there are boggin!
And here‘s where I went – you’ll notice it was all on the road today – as a shakedown, I didn’t actually fancy finding out there was a problem with something while in the middle of a 4 mile long muddy path and needing to walk back home through it.
