Is it windy where you are today? 18mph here. I was going to get the Triton out.. but I fear it may blow away!

For Sudbury from uk.weather.com: Wind From the Northwest at 24 gusting to 39 mph, I am wining so far.......

I now own a triton router, but seeing your comment brings out the old british biker in me. I never had a Triton of my own but the last one I rode had a 750 Triumph engine with twin SU carbs in a Norton wideline frame, 18 mph wind, nothing compared to the the ton plus in the other direction! :roll:

Up the proverbial creek
Only averaging 6.7 mph here now, gusting to 8.3, NNW, and only struggled up to 25.5 around midnight. 11°C, 98%RH <wince> 1007 mb.

Gotta love the Old Man's new weather station. :D

Cheers, Alf

Well, on the technical side here in Herefordshire, the barometer is showing 1015. Apart from that I got home from walking the dog about 1/2 hour ago and it was b*****y freezing with a fair old wind blowing and a hint of rain/snow in the air. Glad to get back in the warm.

Cheers,

Trev.

Why is it that British bikers had this urge to pull bikes apart then create (in some cases) Frankensteinian combinations - NorBSA, TriBSA, Triton, REBSA (Royal Enfield - yuk!), etc not to mention what some of the continentals could do (remember Fritz Eglis Vincents?). Personally I still have a soft spot for the only British bike ever to have a long enough seat for three men and a dog - the Velo Venom - not as fast as some of the fire engines I had subsequently, but speed isn't everything when giving your mates a lift back from the pub, or is it? :twisted: Happy days.

Oh, and 700 or so feet up here in the Pennines, cold, bright, but not too windy today. Just high RH (92%). We must be missing it for a change.

:shock: Blimey! Three men and a dog on a Venom? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Happy days, indeed. I was never into TRIBSAs, etc. - had enough trouble keeping one bike together in one piece. :roll:

Cheers,

Trev.

I am pleased i took the train to cross the channel today, as it was very very windy (windforce 11 to 12)

Unfortunately the French :twisted: have introduced new electronic check in on their side for the tunnel.

Well hell that didn't work at all, their were ques from here to Tokyo. Had to change lanes 3 times, as people couldn't get it to work

At the end i went to a normal human being and got true in a second

However, to whole new check in system gave me a delay of an hour :twisted:
