oh jesus ....now that is diverse ....i was thinking meet at around 10 at the oakdene cafe allowing for a late brekkie and for any ice or frost to desperse and then maybe a trundle down towards hastings for afternoon chips then trundle back.
who should chime in but my 2 favourite riders, one who like's late starts but lives on t'other side of planet and the other who hates late starts but is reasonably local.
well thats the plan anyway lets ave it.

10? days half over Rolling Eyes .

But, looking at the weather forecast, 10 isn't such a bad idea as it's heavy rain early on.

So, see you at 10 in the morning happy biker .

3 out of 4 attendees including myself ...best turn out of the year.
at 6 am this morning the weather here looked dreadful and i was contemplating calling it off but by 8 the sky had a defining line across it from black to blue, low and behold we had bright skies allday, thanks for the ride guys and once again sorry for the green laneing bit on the way down and the bright sunshine which we rode into. other than that i had a hoot and felt i could push a few boundaries and learn a few more of the falcos quirks ...like wet feet on metal pegs make for no grip lol.

Good to see Loco after goodness knows how long. Hope to se a bit more of you this year mate. Nice bike. Also good to see you Pete, and thanks for leading.

I was chuckling to myself as we went down some of the lanes on the first part of the ride, referring back to our conversation before the start. Wink Laughing . I never thought I would enjoy narrow, water and mud filled lanes riding into blinding sunlight, but I did.

All in all a good day happy biker Weather sunny .

Laughing alright alright!!

after re-starting the duke from her enforced slumber, I managed to excise myself from bed at some god awful hour (it was like pre-dawn or something....that's 8.00 to most people)
Got my togs on an checked the weather report it was going to be a balmy 9c !! happy days, great I'll get the summer gloves out.. this as it turns out was not the correct decision..
started off fine low speeds sub 40's the gloves were fine, it wasn't until I got on the motorway to cruise at motorway speeds I realised the error of my ways, summer gloves in winter just plain stupid.. and that is that

so arriving for brekkie with the canned age ... err sorry carnage and bingo.. sorry I mean Jimbo was a joy (not least because I could warm my hands up)
promptly guzzled a egg and bacon roll and a rosie lee had a chat then we headed out, amusingly at this point I must point out that we had discussed that there weren't going to be any silly roads more akin to dirt tracks than tarmac, but no-one told canned age so for the first half hour we were dazzled by roads covered with mini streams, mulch and even worse at some points they were so little used they were covered with green alge like substance Shocked add that to the low winter sun creating a blanket black sheet below it's blinding light hiding what was coming up it was ....emotional
after that we got back on real roads.. and the realisation that perhaps putting a Superduke on 'comfort' settings in fact does the complete opposite turning a composed and stable machine in to part bucking bronco over the bumps part wallowing crone (sport road settings to be restored immediately)
none the less we had a good ride down for chippy chips and sausages, I loved the fact Bingo loved to sit back for ages then occasionally buzz me to remind me he thought I was slow (no change there then) Laughing sat on the beach eating said chippy chips and sausages in the MOST beautiful day warm (a heady 9C don't forget) on the beach with no wind no crowds chatted for ages before heading back at this point canned age thought he would have some fun so off he went on familiar roads while I did my best to read the signs and predict the severity of the corners getting every single one wrong (ho-hum again no change) bingo eventually got bored of following me and off he went so bringing up the rear (like a boss I might add) we stopped just shy of the M26 Motorway so Loco (that's me!) could find his way home exchanged goodbyes and off we went after a pretty damn good day out Cool
Then the realisation returned that perhaps summer gloves in winter is just plain stupid..

Thanks for a great day Canned age and Bingo Smile
