Bikeshuttle who were due to take my bike to Toulouse and back in early June, are not now going to do this run, unsurprisingly given the current status of borders etc etc.

In all honesty I think this year can be written off in terms of long distance travel.
We might manage some trips later in the year.
Off out for the day this coming sunday round the peak district.

Don’t forget your flask and butties, as all cafes, pubs and restaurants will now be closed.

Was up at my local Yamaha dealer (whos looking worried) today on my CBF1000 to order some spares for the S10.
I expect that one of the Yamaha dealers in Edinburgh to close down during these very difficult times for everyone.
At my sons wor,k 150 out of 600 workers were just laid off this afternoon.
Hope to have the S10 through the MOT next week so that I have more capacity to carry coffee and cakes.

Usually take a flask as I'm a tight git anyway. Weather is looking great for a change.

I wonder how this is going to affect the guys who bought their bikes on PCP, are made redundant and cannot afford the monthly payments.

Looks like Boris has locked us all down, was supposed to get an MOT on the S10 tomorrow.
Will speak to the garage but looks like I will have to call it off.

I think I saw MOT requirements are to be exempt for the time being? .. or am I thinking of another country?
