Mad dogs and English men. We’re off for a ride, Bazzer my usual wing man will be sorely missed, this time it’s going to be ‘Jorg the laughing German’. So it’s going to be mad dogs, an Englishman and a German. Are we bonkers with the current Covid situation in Spain? Noooo, I’ve had Covid19 good and proper and figure it has to give me some kind of immunity until the virus mutates. Let’s hope my antibodies are still going strong but as for Laughing Boy, yes he’s bonkers! Besides, Cooperman of this Parish has just returned from the Picos and my thanks go to him because he says take masks and the usual sensible precautions and it’s fine. Added to that the situation in the UK is going horribly wrong and you could catch it just as easily here. Above all inside a full face helmet and behind a buff has suddenly become the safest way to travel, who’d have thought? Alternatively we could always wear condoms the whole way down, that’s supposed to keep you safe isn’t it? We’re going, that’s it and then isolating on return. To add to the confusion I’m not ‘Popping out on my bike’ I’m delivering a bike to southern Spain. Here’s the confession.... it’s a GS! A GS!!!!!!! I never thought I’d see the day when I rode a bike with a top box but last year I did a tour with the Mrs and a top box, as some of you may have read. Now this year I’m touring on a GS, “I.......don’t...believe it”! I knew this year was going to be bad but I didn’t expect to be confessing this. Here’s a picture of me on the bike. It’s going to be an interesting comparison.
