Any place along the coast,I love the sea views

Funniest ride out?
while leaving a hotel in London on Sunday morning, Maria and I were at a junction . A lunatic jumped out of his car which was parked about 100 yards away ,he started running towards us roaring of the top of his head that he was going to get us two traffic wardens. I had to stick it into gear and get out of dodge as quick as possible, he was absolutely raving mad and was afraid he may have produced a knife.

Scariest ride out?
This may sound mad but this also happened at the weekend, we were on the motorway last Friday when we got hit by a car side on ,I can’t for the life of me figure out how the bike didn’t come down , there is a line of blue paint from the car along the pannier. The driver kept on going ,we did catch her a bit further on and she said that she didn’t realise that she hit us . I felt sorry for her as she looked about 90 years old. Luckily a truck has it on video and we made a police report. Hopefully this lady will pack up driving before someone gets killed.

Probably a Honda Goldwing

The Wild Atlantic Way, its about 2,000 miles of beauty .
