The point of many motorcycle journeys is not to go anywhere in particular, but to have fun getting there. That’s why you see bikers congregating in large groups in certain locations: they are locations that have interesting roads nearby. I spent most of this weekend riding my bike around Hampshire and Dorset. Motorways are too boring for motorcycling, so it’s a great way to explore the A- and B-roads, see the countryside and discover villages I’d never otherwise have known existed. It’s also a good way to test out the B-road algorithm.
The video below was made, using a special camera mount, on Friday evening on the A32. It’s rare to encounter so little traffic and experience the freedom of the open road by car, but by bike convoys of cars and lorries are quickly passed, and I frequently get the road to myself. This makes riding a real pleasure.
