Honda Porn

I got a lot of stuff done today. The GE guy came to sort out the recall on the dishwasher. The roofing people came for their money (at last). I learned about tree pruning and pruned some trees. And then I went to the tire place and picked up the new shoes for the car. It still goes and stops like a 2 ton box but the handling has been transformed. It corners! In fact, it corners so well the ABS came on - twice - trying to recover me from some playfully hard full-lock stopping. At least I think it was the ABS. It might have been the new tyres rubbing on something but I couldn't see anything that looked like it was in peril. Time will tell.



Oh yes - one other thing. I rode the new Triumph Tiger 1050 today. Oh. My. Lord. I love my BMW. It's a fantastic bike. But having ridden the new Tiger.... well. I do believe my BMW and I will be parting company in the near future. The Tiger is just phenomenal. Simply amazing. Well - apart from the gearbox, but that's typical Triumph fare. I could not believe what a great bike that thing is. I simply have to have one now. Now I just need to figure out quite how I can afford it :-(
