130417 Alexandra leaving – Landmark Challenge Part One

For the most part riding for the sake of riding is the best riding, however from time to time a sense of purpose imposes itself despite one’s best effortlessness.

The other day the Big Butch Harley took me for a trundle over to Monty’s Classics at Mill Hill to source a few 650 Triumph parts for the project I am helping (!) my friend with. A ride with a purpose.

On the way I looked in at Plushabridge Superbikes to ask Rob Blake, Moto Cross Champion, if he knew anyone how might turn out to view the Cornish leg of the Gaffers’ Gallop 2013. A ride with two purposes.

Throughout I took some snaps for the Thistledown Landmark Challenge 2013. Kinthuggery, a ride with three purposes .

I ally myself to purposeless riding and the whole thing evaporates. So much for the simplicities of pleasure.

We know a song about that, don’t we?


Without further ado, here are the pics:-
