Managed to get out today with a couple of the lads, three triples in all !
Street, Tiger and a Benelli Trek 1130.
Full wet kit on today and only a few degrees above freezing certainly hones your road craft a little !
130 miles, and two and a half hours, of rain soaked, mud laden roads to Milnthorpe and Sue's Cafe in the Square for a tremendous Breakfast Barm and a welcome hot choccy...
long way to go for brekky but it has to be done !
Slipped a bit here and there but the Street was as sure footed as any bike I have ridden, couple of quick blasts on a section of motorway too returned 56mpg, 80mph, according to the trip computer
even if it was 10% out the improvement over town riding mpg, once on the open road, is tremendous.
Downside, erm, none, .........assuming you discount the full bike clean up required once home !
