    Touring Blues

    Well its about this time I'am getting ready to go touring on the Tornado. Last year did the Dolomite mountains to the Pyrenees Great ride. Due to other commitments, price of fuel and the thought that we are about to be fisted by the government for tax rises I will be working hard to get to italy next year. Chances are i'll be on the same tyres thats on the bike now which is a first for me in six years. The nelli is going to have a quiet summer this year a couple of trips to the lakes and world supers gathering and thats it. Just been looking at the video's that i posted on youtube Ah those where the days.

    So your not going this year so ahve the blues?
    Or you are going, but not on Nelly, so have the blues?
    Or you are going, and on Nelli, but have the blues?


    I've got the blues, i've still got 25 days until I go on mine. Kent to about 50 miles south of Geneva (Lac Du-Annecy, well worth a stop-over as its a lovely place) in one day. Easy, done it by myself last year, but on a 220 mile range Bandit, not a 100 mile range Tornado

    Days are not rolling fast enough though

    Daimo,
    Nice rhyme!
    Geneva looks to be a beautiful place!
    If Errol can get 'best out of a tank - 346km' with his Mottyfied Tornado, is it as George Michael has sung that 'You've gotta have faith' and take the plunge?
    A mate's just bought a new 1250 Bandit, they're a great all-rounder, but he secretly wanted a Benelli or another Ducati!
    Have a great trip!
