Don’t you just love...
Seeing the enthusiasm and joy that my lad had last night when he cracked the throttle balance of holding a controlled rear wheel spin while doing donuts around obstacles in the garden... :2up :2up

Going out alone with the bike on a lovely dry sunny day only to find no matter what turns you take along the way you are never alone and end up following / being followed by other folks out for a bimble on there steel horses!

Didn't want to come home after a cracking aftermoon! :freebird

Know the feeling. House up on Tuesday and after 7 viewings 3 notes of interest and an offer by Friday. Weekend off viewings to have another two on Monday.

...looking thru the MCN reviews trying to reduce the choice of potential bikes, then reading this:

"You can turbocharge the motor, add nitrous, almost anything really and the V-4 lump will take it."

Put a smile on my face :biggrin2 :biggrin2

:P Being Happy filtering thru the city traffic, during daylight, on a big v-twin, while Pharrell's latest tune was on repeat in my head..."Because I’m happy" :P

Mind you , the clapping bit was tricky, luckily I was not in a position to dance either.

Oh I do like the throttle control/response with a big twin :biggrin2 :log :biggrin2

Today I will mainly be wearing waterproofs :biggrin2

It was a tad damp out there, but enjoyable :log :log

Today I took the panzer, but could not be bothered taking the topbox of the KTM...which is something I might do more often...the lack of topbox in high gusting wind made big difference.

While splashing thru some big puddles this popped into my head again...


"Happy"
[Verse 1:]
It might seem crazy what I’m about to say
Sunshine she’s here, you can take a break
I’m a hot air balloon that could go to space
With the air, like I don’t care baby by the way

[Hook:]
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do

[Verse 2:]
Here come bad news talking this and that, yeah,
well, give me all you got, and don’t hold back, yeah,
well, I should probably warn you I’ll be just fine, yeah,
no offense to you, don’t waste your time
Here’s why

[Hook]

Hey, come on

[Bridge:]
(happy)
bring me down
can't nothing bring me down
your love is too high
bring me down
can't nothing bring me down
i said (let me tell you now)
bring me down
can't nothing bring me down
your love is too high
bring me down
can't nothing bring me down
i said

[Hook 2x]

Hey, come on

(happy)
Bring me down… can’t nothing…
Bring me down… your love is too high…
Bring me down… can’t nothing…
Bring me down, I said (let me tell you now)




Anyone else in the happy zone :confused
