Wheelie Wednesday is here....

Hi folks, who else is missing Motogp....

Hope your weeks going well. Thanks for all your wheelie piccies and please keep them coming.

So, I'm missing Motogp, sure you are too.

Surprise, my post is really early this week!

Let's chinwag about something that is really getting on my nerves at the moment and as I have no round up of  Motogp. I am sure you will appreciate why it's getting on my nerves once you have read my dilemma..

It's that time of the year when garden fences have to be maintained! Yes you heard right! My dilemma is having to paint the fence in our back garden. O.k, so we all have to do these mundaine things but I am so frustrated at having to give my time up at the lottie and riding with our biker friends to one of those jobs that seems to take for ever.

It's not as if I have to do it all on my own because hubby is helping with it too, it's just such a boring job! And, it doesn't help that we have to do our neighbours sides too!

Now, I am not one to winge, but after spending Sunday cutting back all of the shrubs and clearing my rockery, I am exhausted and the thought of today going out and painting a panel before hubby comes home from work and after doing the housework (day off!) is just to much!

The problem with me is that I can't sit still and I really do need too to so as to regain some energy, so, I thought the only way that I would sit still is if I wrote on my blog and looked at all of the wonderful wheelies that get sent to me via facebook and twitter.

The thing is though I am feeling so guilty! Although I am totally exhausted after the work that we not just me did in the garden at the weekend, sitting here and writing on my blog knowing that the fence is staring at me and needing doing whilst hubby is working is making me feel that I am being lazy.

 That said, I know that I am not lazy! I know that I have worked hard in the house today, almost slaughtered myself yesterday in the garden and have to do a 12 hour shift at work tomorrow!

 Giving up riding with our biker friends on Sunday does not bare well either! They all went to Kimmeridge bay whilst me and hubby worked our socks off!

 Enough of my whinging! Do I feel better writing it down? No unfortunately not, the fence is still looking at me.....

 Motogp hasn't helped having a break!

 And Rossi, well, I hope he comes back fighting fit and raring to get that 10th title because I know his fans are crying out for him to get it!

No pressure there then!!

Anyway, whinging over, get on with it is what springs to mind...

 I receive so many biker pictures that I am thinking of expanding my blog to include other pictures that are what I would say challenging moves, seems such a waste not to share them with others. 

For example, this picture below, absolutely incredible how the bike didn't go over! 

Yep, that's it I have made my mind up, I am going to add any piccies that are sent to me which are outstanding, different, challenging, funny or out of the ordinary...

Like these below.....

Omg! Couldn't believe what I saw when this was sent to me, lol....

Now that's what I call travelling light! Not....

 This one is different too, look how close all of those riders are....

How many of you have found your bike stuck in the mud....

Posy piccies too, can be fun, lol......



So, that said, I can only add them if you send them to me! So, get looking threw your piccies and start sending them to me via facebook and twitter and I will add them to my blog for other biker crazy folk to see.

And yes, I do have many followers!

Mmm, feeling better now, really enjoyed looking through pictures and adding them took my mind of the dreaded fence!

Anyway, for now and until next time happy riding and ride safe and hopefully my next blog will be more about motogp.

Oh, and please share to all of your friends, they too may have some fantastic pictures for us all to enjoy that they would like to send to me.

Until laters......

Wheelie Wednesday

Hello again! Welcome to my Wheelie Wednesday blog

Thank you all once again for your piccies, seems we love our wheelies!

So Motogp is getting very exciting, with Dovizioso winning yet again at the weekend. 

Points have changed too and it's gonna be very challenging for all the riders from now me thinks....

Anyway, lets have a look at what's being said around the web shall we.....

Well done yet again to Andrea Dovizioso with two wins in a row!

Petrucci:- 'They gave me a warning for that contact with Marquez and I tried to recover but I never managed to get back in the top three even though in the end I was able to pass Folger to get into fourth place.

I thought I could take Pedrosa to get another podium but then I felt that the rear rubber had started to drop. I tried to change the mapping but things didn't improve.

I was trying to resist, but I couldn't accelerate any more - maybe I pushed a bit too early to recover. I was there with them.' Quote - MotoGP

Vinales:- 'From first, leading, to 16th now is a big drama for me. Because I go home, I don't know what happened, I'm not really motivated and I have to do many races'. Quote

Pedrosa:- 'The feeling was not there and I'm happy for the points, the championship is really difficult - every week it's moving a lot.

We can see Honda and Yamaha struggling more to keep the good and bad.

The Ducatis are a little more stable. So for sure they are doing some good things.' Quote

Rossi:-' We are very very sad about this weekend, about the result, about the race.

First of all because is one of my favourite tracks and we expected to do a good race, also because last year was a gread race and I won. It's very strange that the two races where last year I won this year are the worst.

So we were a bit worried a during the weekend we tried a lot of different things but unfortunately we were never fast enough, and today the race was very, very difficult.

 For me, the main problem is that the bike has more understeer and after the problem becomes very big for the rear tyre. At the end, the main problem is the rear traction, especially on the right, because already after ten laps I as very very much in trouble and I had to slow down very much.

I tried everything but anyway it was impossible to exit fast from the corner. I felt the lack of turning with this bike from the first time that I tried it. I always sffer, sometimes more, sometimes less. So for tomorrow we can have some stuff that has nothing to do with the 2016 bike but maybe omething that can be interesting for improve this one.'

'The old bike, under my point of view, turns better, and stresses less the rear tyre and here like in Jerez Yamaha Tech 3 riders are faster than us.

It was already good to take some points and it's a great shame also that I lose two positions in the championship but anyway it's still very tight and we are five riders in 28 points, but also Zarco and Lorenzo are not very far.

Now we have to concentrate on the future because tomorrow we'll have an important test and it's positive that we can make the test in this track, where we struggle. We hope to improve the speed and the feeling with the bike'.
Quote - Valentino Rossi

Lorenzo:- 'It's the first time I am less than 10s away so a good race but obviously I want to win and fourth place is not where I want to be.

But we are closer and I need a more natural bike to spring my potential.

Right now I am doing good races but not exceptional races'. - Quote Autosport

Crutchlow:- 'I survived and I managed to finish which is probably the main thing!

 It wasn't the greatest day I've ever had on a motorcycle, but I was pleased enough having started in 17th.

We had our issues in the race and we've had the all weekend but, as mad as it sounds, I was actually quite confident of going towards the podium today. I chose a hard tyre thinking that everybody else's would drop, but ours wasn't even good on the warm up lap, so that made things so tough in the race.

I think we managed well this weekend. We had the odds stacked against us after qualifying in 17th and mking the mistakes we did. But Honda did a great job to get Marc and Dani on the podium, bit it's difficult when the Ducati bike is making up four tenths on Pedrosa in a straight line.

We just have to continue to work hard, but it was a great job by Dovi and I'm really pleased for him'. Quote -MotoGP

Marquez:- 'I immediately felt great again, on the bike and with the front.

Actually I did my fastest lap on that tyre, as it was more stable.I was smiling again, at least on this track.

 Hopefully we can continue on this path with the tyres'. Quote

Folger:- 'So far this year, I am very pleased with the performances that we have produced, including the pre-season test, but there is much more to come from me.' Quote -

So, that's it for this week folks, the above piccie although not a wheelie caught my eye!

Ride safe until next week keep your piccies coming....
