    Hope you've got over your aches and pains after the run Scott.

    And nice bike! My ex-husband had Triumphs when we were bikers years and years ago. But that one is a beauty.

    I am a tiny bit tender in my hips, I did a tiny bit cycling yesterday on a spinning bike in the gym. I am going to try and go running tomorrow just a short one a 3-4 miler.

    Yeah I love the look of them, I was looking at leathers and boots and helmets etc at work last night. It will be a while before I can get my Daytona lol but its gunna come. I hate having no freedom and lets just call her Ana lol she is moaning too. There is a link too 50 shades of grey to my other half's name lol. She hates me leaving work at silly times and not getting in for ages after I finish. As an example I finished work this morning at 645 I didn't get back to my flat till 940am.

    I love that model of Daytona but i think i want the red version.

    That's great that your ex is taking over the mortgage. It must be a weight off your mind and of course it will free up a substantial amount of cash per month.

    Good news on the new bike and here's to faster commute journeys!

    I bet you can't wait to take to the road then, away from all the great unwashed bus users . You can go off for little jaunts as well when you aren't working.

    It's great news though , a shorter commute is always better.

    I hear you Scott re the joys of one's fellow passengers . Seriously though mine are fine on the 9 to 5 commute. We are either reading, listening to music on our phones or asleep! Mind you late at night it changes, especially once the run up to Christmas begins.....

    Yeah its a pain in the bum Seasidegal i cant wait to be shot of the commute. Just to hightlight how bad public transport is i had to leave for work at 710pm last night i arrived at work at 9pm. I dont start work till 10pm, its either i do that or 3 buses not two and one is with arriva so my pass wouldnt cover it. This morning is better i left work at 645 i should be home for 830.

    Rant over i apologize. I will post more of an update when i am home its Qmee time

    I have replied lonely, it is yes the daft thing is its not like its 30 or 40 miles its about 16-17 but there is nothing direct and every bus goes the scenic route. ie down an A road and stopping in every little village going.
