Hi All, Thanks for your replies, I must admit, being on a bike again does make you feel younger!. I had bikes in the 60s & 70s. Then due to a fowl-up by the DVLA here in UK, I was told they had no record of my Full bike licence,( somebody must have pressed a delete button!!). However, I have since gone through the whole Rigmarole again so I can now ride my Goldwing, Hope we get a good summer!. Mind you, I never was a fair weather rider in the olden days. So Bring it on ...Safe Riding, Rubber side down.
