What’s up with this weather??

Howdy everyone……..we thought that we may have a wet ride to work today, but thankfully the road stayed mostly dry.

The weather has changed a lot since last week and I want the summer conditions back again!  Despite the cooler temperature, the riding today was good and hopefully it will be the same tomorrow.

It was great to get a wash on Saturday morning, which thankfully removed a weeks worth of bugs and grime, getting me ready for another week. We were lucky and for the trip home today, the bugs weren’t as thick, so there wasn’t as much mess.

There were also lots of trucks on the road today, mostly going the other way so we didn’t have to worry too much about them.

I’ve noticed lately that we are starting to see a few of the same bikes on the road on our trip to work.  There are always new ones, but as we head out of town there are a few familiar faces that we see each week.  There are never scooters on the highway, but seeing other bikes is always good.  Anthony’s brother has recently made the switch from scooter to bike.  He has changed from Daelim S-5 to Suzuki GS-500 (which he picks up tomorrow)

The Suzuki is the bike on the right. The Moto Guzzi next to it was ridden by the dealer when they took the GS for a test ride.

So that’s it for this week so far, I’m sure there will be more stories later….

And so we come to the end of this post and the inspiration for Derbi’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger(s) of the week is the world of MotoGP. The premier class of international motorcycle road racing…..and this week’s winners are described by Wikipedia as people who are “hired to drive consumer demand for a product, service, brand, or concept by directly interacting with consumers.” Yep that’s right, we’re talking about “Brolly Dollys” and today we feature some of the girls used for the promotion of the Rizla Suzuki MotoGP team…..
