I don't believe that Godspeed can actually walk.

I think he just leaps about everywhere like a loon. Which is rather splendid really. :lol:
I think that's his dismount :o

We're heading to Glenlyon today (near Kenmore) for a walk with our border collie and outdoor lunch with the portable BBQ.

We may pass on the road at some point....

Ride safe Bro.

Regards;
Peter

Another 210 miles done today but no photos as I was riding mostly through the heavy rain in the highlands this morning. Glad I bought new waterproof trousers as I stayed dry inside all the way 👍
Tomorrow heading to the Peak District.

It wasn't a very nice day for riding today, hope it improves tomorrow.
I bought my Forza because I hoped it would give more protection in the rain. But I haven't been caught out in any rain yet ( mainly because i plan my day rides in good weather ) and I'm interested in experienced scooter riders take on this.
So today do you think if you were on a motorbike your legs & feet would have been wetter/colder ??

Yes definitely drier and warmer. However the drier bit only counts when the rain isn’t too heavy and you’re moving forwards like at 40mph +
The problem comes when the rain is heavy, it hits your top half and runs down you, also when you stop at a junction everything gets wet.... guess the only way around this is to get one of those apron things but can’t quite bring myself to that....yet 😉
