At last: Spring coming

Me and the OH were out on the bikes yesterday , her first ride out for 4 or 5 months. She's getting back into the swing of it again, so planning another run tomorrow.

Just had the first load of Grues migrating north again today. About 1000 in the first lot.
Saw some grues the other day, the garden is full of sprouting bulbs, my field is full of new lambs, lots of bikes on the road and I'm working on my old car - spring must have sprung.

Mayan's MC

I should have said, my MC is mainly Harleys , but some of the young guys prefer roadster styled bikes - Ducati Monster, Triumph - maybe things will change , slowly. But if I turn up on my Honda cafe racer, I get a lot of stick!

Mayan's MC

In SoA there were a couple of groups riding full dressers, and most of the SoA guys were on Harley Dyna's to strat with, but later sometimes used dressers too.
