Hello and welcome to my Blog, my name is Chris, a bus driver for First Mendip based in Wells, Somerset. Married to Fiona, we live in Midsomer Norton near Bath, with Boots the cat. My main hobby is Amateur Radio and I hold the call sign G4KVI. I am the repeater keeper for GB3UB and MB7UB. I have a fascination for the weather and all things to do with nature and science. I am a biker and currently ride a Honda CBfF600. As a Christian I worship, when shifts allow at St. Nicholas Church in Radstock. These are my observations on my life, both at work and at home.

The beast is no more

As you know I ride a rather old Suzuki GS500 which has served me very well over the last four years, until now. having just bought a new front disc, battery and rear tyre someone decided to reverse in to it while it was parked outside the house. Fortunately a neighbour saw them and managed to stop them and my Wife managed to get all the details, However, I still had to come home and sort out the insurance. Today the bike was picked up and a rather nice hire bike left in it's place. I now have to wait and see what I will get for the bike which of course will be less than the replacement cost. In the meantime I hope to enjoy the CB500F I have at present.
