It's almost been a year since my life took a bit of a drastic and fantastic left turn.
This is a picture of my stopover on my way to @motorcyclelive 2017 which was one of the best biker experiences I've ever had. I called it biker christmas, and it really was.
I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to head back up to Motorcycle Live 2018 in November. Who knows what's going to happen, who I'm going to meet, or what I'm going to see.
What I do know is I can't wait!
On Sunday I'll be at @ukvertseries at @skaterhamskatepark.
I've not skated in years but on a recent visit to Skaterham I busted out my old deck and hit the vert ramp. I can not believe how much I've missed it and how great it is. I am going to wreck myself on Sunday but I don't care, Skaterham is one of the best parks I've ever been and I can't wait to get back in.
@hondaukmotorcycles and @doblemotorcycles will also be there, promoting motorcycle riding to young people as well as showing off the awesome MSX/grom.
See you there?
At the weekend I took the new Honda CB1000R out for a spin, and reviewed it for my YouTube channel. Video to follow soon.
What I can tell you is the bike is tremendous. It's café racer inspired but with the raw power of the fireblade and the comfort of a sports tourer. This bike has to be seen, and ridden, to be believed.
Thank you kindly to @doblemotorcycles in Surrey for the loan and hospitality.
Keep an eye out for the video and please get in touch with questions or what bike you'd like to see reviewed next.
I went to the Brighton Burn Up at the weekend, a festival of thousands of people and motorcycles. I bought a ring which I've been trying to get a hold of for years which was a real highlight.
The Sussex bike scene has changed dramatically this year and I'm interested to see how it ends up.
Anyway, one of the highlights of the weekend was meeting this lady in a field on the way home.
I rode the brand new @hondaukmotorcycles Goldwing to North Wales this weekend. It was a 600 miles round trip and it was brilliant.
The Goldwing is an outstanding bike. It handles better than my pan european, and it was so comfortable I could do 175 miles without even considering taking a break. It truly is a luxury motorcycle. If you are considering buying this bike at all, go to your local Honda dealer and testride it today. You will not be sorry.
Thank you so much to @doblemotorcycles in Surrey for lending me this one!
I've never been to Wales before and I can honestly say it's one of the most beautiful countries I've ever been in. I'd love to go back and have a better look around.
On Friday morning I'll be riding a Honda Goldwing to North Wales. I'm excited for a number of reasons, not least because I'll be riding an amazing touring motorcycle for a 500 mile round trip, but also because I've never been to Wales! I'm looking forward to it.
