    Had me a right gud time!

    On Sundi, went to Barny-ard Castle on me own, havin? bin let down by the fair-weather luvvers and rain-fearin? unmentionables on BIRD ? and the can?t-be-arsed-mob on IXXRA.

    Set off in the drizzle and it was misty and mucky, riding over the moor tops to Barnard ? but it never rained and it was never ?cold?. My only concern was the amount of crud the bike was picking up off the wet, muddy roads but, hey ? that?s easily remedied?!

    Having chased the rain all the way, I wasn't surprised to see wet pavements at Barnard. I stopped just long enough to take a couple of phone pics as I was keen to continue to learn about setting up the TomTom and, I must say, after sorting the pairing with my Cardo headset, the TomTom?s newer technology totally eclipsed the old Garmin 550 I used to have.

    Learning how to use the routing software was a little bit challenging at first ? there are several programmes available ? including one that integrates with Google Earth but, having begun to get the hang of things, I?ve found it to be much more accurate; incomparably faster when re-calculating routes if I wander off-track ? and much more user-friendly than the Garmin.

    There were some great views to be had ? I?ll be back there when the sun?s shining to enjoy the grandeur of our beautiful countryside.

    Eventually, I rode into ever-improving weather until I emerged into glorious sunshine on the homeward leg. I enjoyed myself by deviating from my planned visit to Glasson Dock, opting for some fun through the twisties and arriving home with the inevitable daft grin on me mush ? it?s great to be back on a ?Bird!

    Again, the TomTom?s performance was impressive and we arrived home happy and looking forward to MotoGP Le Mans. We leave for France next week and I?ll be taking the camera with a view to re-instating the DAdoodles site so ya can all share me travels if yer like.

    That way at least yer won?t ?ave ter geddoff yer arses and act-cherly ride yer bikes, eh? 8rfl@
