Last ride on the R6 this year

Just come out of hospital after operation on my foot. Had to have bone from my shin grafted into my foot to sort out an old injury. F**king hurts. Now got 3 months in plaster.

Tuesday was my last chance to ride the R6 and luckily it was a dry bright day but cold - about 8 degrees C. Lovely blast up the A21 in south east England. Blew the cobwebs away at 140MPH.

Now planning a trip to France in May on it......

Don't use Farenhite in UK any more. Celcius much easier. Freezing is 0. Boiling is 100.
