    A restorative pootle in the country

    Spent all weekend looking after the kids as the missus was working bless her.
    After 48 hours of bickering, fighting and attempting to break everything in the house (that's just me and the wife, never mind the kids), I really needed a run out on the Mille to clear my head.
    My regular riding mates had been out earlier in the day and were ready for the pub so I said I'd meet them later for a beer and headed off. Nothing major, just left Salisbury headed for Blandford - falling in with a quite quick gang of 4 bikes on the way - turned off at Sixpenny Handley and over the downs to Shaftsbury via Zig-Zag Hill (officially, the twistiest bit of road in Britain).
    Headed back towards Salisbury on the old A30 - one of my favourite roads - but turned off through the lanes in time to catch the sunset on the hills above Wylie, where these pics were taken on my phone.
    Just nice to remember sometimes what a beautiful county we live in.

    Would be a nice bike if you actually put some decals on it

    Cat: That would be good - when I can organise something more than an hour in advance! Hope to get down to Poole and maybe up to Avebury as the nights get lighter - us old buggers don't have much night vision left I'm afraid.

    Tim: So it looks like your mobile advertising hoarding? I don't advertise ANYTHING for free mate - a couple of 'Zone stickers are all I need.
