Now that I have been made redundant today (long story, but something
to do with telling my boss he is a prick; - we Geordies don't suffer
fools gladly!) I now have the opportunity to travel with a few quid in
hand. Thinking about Spain (my favourite country) on either the
Trophy or the Rocket 3, and despite being an old fart at 45 (although my
former yong lady employees don't think so, they want to come with me!
I am thinking of a month away, and taking in Ibiza, a fantastic
Time to go do what I should have done at 20 years old.
(I would really like to go on the Rocket 3, which has proved to be
utterly reliable and is my preferred steed, but in my heart of hearts
I know statistically the Trophy is the better option.)
If anyone else in the UK is interested, let me know. Otherwise I am
likely to be missing for a few weeks enjoying myself.
BTW I am thinking about doing Motorcycle Riding Instruction when I
return. Any pointers welcome; I am finding it difficult to find out
how to become qualified.

following much the same route! Not sure that work would forgive me
for going quite so soon! (also just booked a long weekend to partake
in the BMW off road skills course - gulp!)
