Wednesday Wheelies and more....

Hi folks, It's that time of the week, hope your week is going well so far, how many of you can't wait for the racing at Motogp to begin...


And who do you think will win the first race?



So this is the Circuit for the first Moto2 official test at Jerez and the times to make sure wer'e all sat down ready to watch the first race of the season.

Don't forget on Sunday clocks go forward 1 hour!
I'm guessing that Rossi will be up there with Vinales and that Marquez will be close behind all of them. What are your thoughts?


Haven't seen many other photo's from other riders of wheelies, if you post them I'll add them to my blog that includes my readers.


The track....


Love this one, true legend....


Found another one....


Im guessing this is the truck that Rossi stays in throughout the season, wonder what it look likes inside.....


For anyone that is interested this is the calendar for the Destination Triumph Solent group that I ride with as pillion with hubby. Please come along if you want to find out more to the club night. Great people and excellent riding.

I wonder if Rossi will be changing his lid for the Motogp?


14 days until Motogp begins, yippee...


Let me know what rides are planned for your groups and I'll post them on my blog for other readers.

Can't wait to see these lot again, roll on Motogp!


Well, that's it for today, except I need to let you know that I am going to separate my stories as Motogp is not far off now I thought it best to start this now, so, in future I will be doing blogs on motorbikes and Motogp and the riders etc and then another on my allotment journey, reason being that I will have lots to write about on these subjects in the coming months.

What with my riding with our Triumph club which I will have loads of piccies of and Motogp and my new venture down at the allotment best I separate the two now, that said keep your eyes peeled....

Have a great evening, ride safe everyone.....


Until later....
