Another ride out on Saturday to try to get some running-in done, check some more possible shoot locations, get some footage, and visit a couple of potential clients.
So I charged up the helmets and cameras and headed off … at 2-3ºC! I was wearing a base layer, a long-sleeved T-shirt, a short-sleeved T-shirt, the Keis heated vest and my Klim Latitude jacket over the top. I hadn’t been able to find my base layer Long Johns (which have probably been tidied away safely somewhere…) so I made do with a pair of Capri-length Nike running tights under my Levis.
Just over 100 miles down the M3 and A303 in an hour and three quarters as the traffic was fairly light. I’d not bothered with the GoPro after all and regretted it as I rode up past Stonehenge as the first view from the top of the hill heading West is excellent.
With it being crisp and bright, the winter views with that muted brightness were wonderful. Just a pity I didn’t catch any shots…
A quick sandwich in Street and then back in less than two hours stopping for petrol just before the M3 to make sure the nagging fuel warning wouldn’t come on. Despite getting up to 11ºC at one point, it did take a few hours once I was off the bike to properly warm up again.
So the RT is now showing 603 miles and the app says it’s just 19 miles short of its initial service mileage (1,000km). Perfect for the trip from here to Bahnstormer at Alton.
