Today was the day I decided to give my Harley a blast through the beautiful Welsh mountains, I'm sure with open shorty pipes on it the local sheep will remember me for a long time!

The weather was perfect, 23c (74f), clear skies and little wind (the weather, not me). I gave the bike a good clean and polish before filling the tank and heading north, the traffic was minimal and no police helicopter in sight.

It was a great trip, about 300 miles in total, I stopped for a bite to eat and a cuppa at a locally famous burger van. Sitting on a pile of cut logs the view was amazing. I was actually looking down onto army Chinook helicopters dropping supplies for a training exercise, at least I hope it was an exercise. I swear my bike sounds like one of those things!, a point reinforced by a fellow resting biker.

Here's a view of the Brecon Beacon National Park in winter, definately not biking weather!

 You know the ones, you've planned everything in advance so nothing at all can go wrong.

The alarm has been set 10 minutes early to make sure you're early for work for once, bedtime has been brought forward an hour to make up for getting up 10 minutes earlier.

This was not allowing for gale force winds and torrential rain during the night which found a way through the roof tiles, soaked my bedroom ceiling and dripped all over me in bed causing me to wake up at 3am thinking the alarm has gone off so I switched it off while still half asleep. Conceding defeat to natures wrath I slept in a spare bedroom, taking the alarm clock with me.

Needless to say, the alarm didn't work very well in the 'off' position so I was  woken by the sound of schoolchildren passing my house on their way to school. Some quick eyes still closed mental calculations concerning school start time and my work start time made me come to the conclusion that at that time I should have been just starting my mid-morning break in work!

Eyes open!, wash, teeth, get dressed, shoes (no socks), no cuppa, leave for work and think of a really original excuse for being so late during the journey, the length of which was  lengthened by 35 minutes to allow for parents taking their saplings to school in a parade of 4x4s.
