Wow! What a treat yesterday was! My wife, Sally, got on the back and we tootled off to Fairford to see the Air Tattoo! When we arrived, the Red Arrows were in full flight.

We got back home and encouraged my eldest son, Richard, to have a go. Tentatively he borrowed mum’s gear and hopped on the back.

Took him out along the B4040 to Leigh where we turned left towards Wootton Basset and back home via Purton. He enjoyed it so much that we headed back out to Blunsdon, over to Highworth and down towards Lechlade. From there we headed home via Fairford and Latton. Had a quick blast on the A419 just so he could experience 70mph back into Cricklade.

He loved it!!! What a great day that turned into!!
