There is nothing better for blowing away the Workday blues than a ride on an old Motor Cycle, and this Friday afternoon was free and belonged to me. Most of the roads were dry and bathed in sunlight but it was still a case for 'steady as you go' because some of the more sheltered lanes were still damp and covered in old leaves right on the spot where you wanted to plant your front wheel. But a great ride all the same. In the back ground is some of the localised flooding just outside the Warwichshire village of Eathorp the day after torrential rain.
The Warwickshire Section of the Vintage Motor Cycle Club held its Autumn run on October the 7th, and a very pleasant and warm ( for time of year ) Sunday morning it was. I am a bit late reporting on this run, however as the nights get darker and the days get colder any Photo's with a bit of sunshine has got to be welcome. This is my 1959 Norton ES2 finished in the unusual Forest Green ( or Shrek to me ) She has good brakes, great handling and makes a pleasant noise....not to loud as to scare horses. When I first purchased the machine it was my intention to remove the original Craven top box. But now it has become a very useful place to stash Spanners,Wax Cotton over trousers,spare bulbs, oily rags...even a bag of Cat food on the way home from work .... So maybe the box stays.
