So, for the first time (this year), this morning I actually needed to make use of the headlight on my motorbike coming to work. ‘Big deal’ you might think. ‘Whoop-de-do’. I would agree with you, but for a couple of minor points:
- I started “early” this morning, had to be at work for 0700. I won’t normally ride the bike on an “early” shift. This may be a habit formed from the extremely loud pipes when I had my Harley. Starting the bike at 0630 is quite loud and I worry that the neighbours are going to complain. The Teapot (above) isn’t as loud as the Harley but it isn’t quiet either!
- I wasn’t really awake and it was still dark.
Thankfully the commute is about 8 minutes on a bad day. No incidents to report on the whole three mile journey.
The sun came out this morning and I decided that I could take the “long” (about 20 minutes) ride home and enjoy the bike.
Now it’s raining. F***!
I might just go for the longer ride anyway, I can always get changed at home. I hate arriving at work wet as I don’t tend to bring spare clothes to work and I would then have to work (hahahahaha….) in wet clothes for the day – or at least until they dried.
Still better than bringing the car in though!
