Should I take her out each day despite the weather?what would you do 😂🙈. Finally back in the UK and back to the McLaren! Thanks to @roguepilots for the epic new gear, everyone check them out and swipe on on my story to see what it’s all about!
Hoy ha sido la presentación del #RepsolHondaTeam 2019 o, lo que es lo mismo, el #dreamteam de #MotoGP. Aunque a ellos les parezca pronto para que se les llame así, mucho tiene que cambiar la cosa para que la unión de Marc Márquez y Jorge Lorenzo en un equipo como @hrc_motogp no sea un enorme espectáculo. Muchas ganas ya de que empiecen a rugir los motores 🔥 #25repsolhonda#motogp2019
