Hot and Sandy

Travel writing, pictures and stuff for people I know. Quite a lot of cycling talk, and some semi-controlled ranting. Hiking, outdoor and two-wheeled stuff, perhaps a little computing when it's worth talking about. Meandering thoughts.

BMW Week 1

Have been riding my BMW again, after a rather annoying layoff to get the rear wheel painted. Eventually I had to use the bike for a long work journey (to Bristol and Bath) - only problem was that the alarm had drained the battery... Much swearing and raw knuckles followed before I managed to jump-start the bike from the car. Phew! Have really been slacking on my mpg chart as well; just added some receipts that were lying around. This is an archive of 5,100 miles of R1100S fuel economy. Generally the highest mpg figures are for long runs, the lower ones are for rushed commutes, or cross-town dashes. You never know, someone might be interested!
