Back to reality

27th March 2017 by  in Daily Digest

After the fun of the weekend in Barcelona, I got up this morning (knackered – it was a late flight home) to find the 1400GTR refusing to start. Somehow, it’s managed to eat its battery between Wednesday, when I last rode it, and this morning, when I needed it.

So the XR’s had its first taste of life as a working bike, bringing me in to town for a meeting this morning. The panniers are a bit smaller than I realised and I did struggle to get all my work kit into them, but I managed.

It’s good to have a back up. But I hope the GTR – which I left on a trickle charger – will be behaving itself when I get home. I don’t need problems with that this week as I have a few miles to do with it. We’ll see.
