Default Ride safely

I know you have all been riding for years, and probably most of you are better riders than me so don't be offended by this post...

For the next three months we are going to get bad weather, this month and next is the time when we all like a drink..even the only at Christmas and Birthdays brigade, so with the cold, ice and lets get home to the warm, and the christmas parties, there are going to be quite a few vehicles on the road doing strange things...

Be careful out there...

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of you.... John

No offence...this time of year worries me too, John...I worry for my fellow biker, for those whose bike IS their only form of transport (as it was mine once)...safe riding to all.
