The first of the 2 fortnightly themes in Scribblers Cove Flickr group is Snow. I have 2 old photos I had to decide between for Snow. One was of the Rieju RS2 wearing carrots as eyes while covered in snow. The other was the Sinnis Trackstar pictured above. The Rieju is a better and funnier photo. The image above though, that was the start of a bad day. A light snow flurry in the morning, and it was off to work. It then started snowing again at 9am. It didnt stop the entire day. The journey home was hard. The A40 was at its usual stand still, but filtering up traffic lines in heavy snow, for 20’ish mile… That’s hard.
Like a lot of hardships in life though, I had a massive sense of achievement afterwards. Mainly for not dropping the bike once, and making it home 12 hours faster than anybody else in London that night.

To the motorcycle followers, I did say I was going to write a follow up for Sinnis Retrostar review. However after reading and adding links to all my Sinnis posts last month, I cannot add anything of use, other than its had a few mechanical issues. Writing about continued issues with the bike just feels like flogging a dead horse. So my Sinnis Retrostar review ends with Part #9 – The Unfortunate End. I get all my parts from Herald. I will run it until it dies, then get myself a bike above 125cc, either Triumph, Enfield or Herald.
