Wiltshire

So today after college, me and a friend decided we would go for a little ride around the forest. After-all, it was an amazing day for England :L

So there we were, Riding around the forest for a good hour. Turns out, Wiltshire is a lot closer than we thought. Hythe, Southampton to Wiltshire is around an hours drive, A lot quicker when both are on sporty 125's.

So my friend pulls up under a green "Welcome to Wiltshire" Sign, takes off his helmet. "Where the actually F*** are we?" Well that got me, I haven't laughed so much in a long time.



So yeah, this picture basically sums up our half hour ride which turned out to be 2 hours.

Oh well, Should go again next week :D

Just filled up my bike.

So yeah, just got back from filling up my bike. Petrol prices are crazy high :O

1.30 a litre at Tesco. For a full tank, it cost me just 13 quid, compared to my old car which would of been around 40-50 quid to fill up. Bikes are defiantly the way forward during these hard economical times, especially for young drivers.

Picture of my bike before I bought it.

My bike

So, I bought my very own Honda CBR 125 on Saturday the 12th of March. Exciting stuff! I took it out for a spin and enjoyed it. Below is a picture of it.



So yeah, this was before I cleaned it and took the back box bracket off. Anyway, It is completely standard. 6 gears, top speed of around 85-90 Mph. So far I've only got it up to 75. It is a fun bike to ride and would recommend it as a beginner to anyone who has passed their CBT (England).
