Winter, I donâ€™t like it; dark when I get home from work, cold all the time & every weekend when I have spare time it seems we are hit with gale force winds or rain, not conducive to riding motorbikes. I find myself in a blue place; grumpy & sad . Luckily I have the Monster, Iâ€™ll let you in on a secret, sheâ€™s magic! The Monster has the best note, sheâ€™s loud & sounds awesome when you back off, we set off car alarms with satisfactory regularity; 2 yesterday morning . She gets the winter blues too; can be a little tricky to start when left idle for more than 4 or 5 days, but once she roars to life the grin begins. Me & the monster like to dance; if you ever see us wiggling around on straighter stretches of road weâ€™re dancing! Sheâ€™s very forgiving & looks after me when I do dumb things . So one way or another life has been a little beige lately. With a day off yesterday, the forecast was for showers but the skies were clear, 3 of us set off for a blat through some of our favourite roads. I hadnâ€™t gone more than a few kms from home before I was smiling & singing in my helmet (trust me, itâ€™s the only safe place for me to sing), hadnâ€™t even reached the twisties yet. Then the real fun ensued; the roads were clean & dry, the sun was out & there was hardly any traffic out there, just a few cars despatched with ease :twisted: . 300kms later I was home with a huge grin on my face; itâ€™s still there today even though Iâ€™m at work, it's Monster Magic!
