Yesterday the Honda went in for the 6000 km service and to have heated handlebar grips fitted. That means I've covered a lot of K's since getting my L's just over 3 months ago. The hand heaters are fantastic - nothing other than these can keep your hands warm in the winter on a bike.
Today I undertook my motorcyle licence test in Sale. All the riding really paid off. The test took about 10 minutes - the paperwork considerably longer.
