Day three in the Big Brother house. Highwaylass is in the drive being shown a very shiny motorcycle. It's early evening here, the roads are still holiday quiet and ideal for trying out a very different bike to the tractors I normally ride. Tomorrow I am going on a ride-out to York with some friendly local riders. I have said as often as I can “slow rider: borrowed bike” in an effort to pre-empt any exploration of the scenery.
