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 and What a Weekend With Motogp

What a fabulous start to Motogp!

Never under estimate Rossi!
Good start to a fresh new season!

Well, what a race, after a very slow start due to conditions the wait was well worth it wasn't it folk.

Rossi never fails to entertain us fans...

Well done to Maverick Vinales, the team look well pleased.

And Rossi, competitive and calculated as usual.

Very true that teamwork gains the best results especially in the case of Yamaha!

Lovely to see Rossi beaming with satisfaction it's as if he's saying to all those who thought he had reached his limit take that you lot!

And Vinales too, he looks so determined and raced with determination.

Now, who was it who knocked Rossi's camera off the back, when I watched the highlights on Channel 5 I couldn't quite make out who it was?

Here we have the standings from the first race at Qatar, great to see Vinales and Rossi right up there. Well done to Dovi too.

True friends....

What a great bunch of guys all raring to go with hunger in their blood to win that title.

Round up of some of the quotes this week I've found on the web:-

Vinales - 'I feel incredible and it shows in the results. We did a great a job during the whole weekend and we started good in the test, then in FP1 we were already feeling really good. The race was difficult, it started to rain and there was a bit of confusion because we didn't know what to do. The first laps were very challenging, the track was so slippery and I wanted to take it easy and stay calm. I knew I had good pace, so I tried to push at the very end of the race. There were many crashes at the front, so I waited for the right moment and finally we took the victory'. Quote motorcyclenews

Rossi - 'Starting the season with a podium is always great, better than last year'. 'I have to say a great thank you to Yamaha and all my team because in all this period I always felt a great support and trust in me'. Quote Autosport

Dovizioso - 'I'm very pleased with the result and the job we did this weekend: it was difficult for everyone because of the conditions we encountered, but we calmly arrived at the race with a competitive set-up. We were even better at choosing the rear tire on the grid, changing strategy and switching to the soft tire. In the final part of the race I tried to hold back Maverick but I don't think that we could have done anything better today'. - Quote Cycle World

Iannone - 'I made a mistake'. 'Maybe this is a lesson for the future, I have to wait for a better situation to pass a slower rider and not be so impulsive'. Quote Motorcyclist

Zarco - 'We can say that (it was) a rookie mistake'. 'I just wanted to go, and I said that if you make the decision to go fast and push, you can find the limit. I accept what I choose'. - Quote

Espargaro - 'For sure, this track for us was our weakest track' - Quote Autosport

Marquez - 'After the race, I think with a hard I was able to fight for the victory until the end But maybe I was also able to crash! Because the hard in the end gives less warnings, and maybe I put the hard, I'm more competitive, but I crash'. - Quote

Just some of the many comments made on line. Eww, it's gonna be an exciting season me thinks....

So, our weekend was great, went out for a rideout with hubby, first one this year, not to cold and I'm ready to start building up the time spent sat on the bike for our tour to Biarritz later on in the year to get my bottom prepared for lots of miles.

This is Bess, our gorgeous bike.....
Follow my story to see where she takes us....

A272 Corhampton road, just has to be done for the first rideout of the year.

Anyone would think it was the middle of summer looking at that sky!

So, the first ride out with the Triumph club starts this weekend leaving from Lysses Car Park, Fareham for a 9am departure. We will be going to Old Sarum Airfield, Salisbury to view vintage aircraft flying and enjoying refreshments from the Skies cafe.

So, that's it from me for this week folks, great start to the new season of motorbiking, racing until later, ride safe......
