They always pick on the ginger.
Bazza meal arrived after we'd all finished, but with peas on.
No peas for the wicked.

Home safe and hot, wouldn't have wanted to leave any later from Devon. It's nearly unrideable weather out there.

Agreed.
I got home just before 14.00, I got up and was going to join the others going to a garden centre for breakfast, but then saw the weather on the telly and figured riding most of the way before it got unpleasant on the m25 later in the day was going to be a better idea.
I left around 10.00, I think, maybe a bit before, and did speed limits all the way home, totally tedious. But safe.....

SP was running with the fan on at any speed less than 50, so the traffic going past the closed m3 was a pain.

Kept seeing bikers in tee shirts and shorts, though, casualty departments have air con, so they'll stay nice and cool if they are unlucky.

Many thanks to poppet for setting up and organising, the killer pool hustle made up for the lack of golf!

A great weekend with excellent company, couldn't have asked for better weather, thanks to everyone for coming along :D
A good mix of riding, from nice fast A roads to bimbling across Dartmoor avoiding sheep sleeping in the road.

Not too much went wrong, Mac snapped his ignition key but luckily it wasn't far from a shop that cuts keys, they also had transponder keys and coded them for him, just a bit sweaty pushing the bike from the petrol station to the shop, about 1/4 mile in 25 degree heat with leathers on.
Tony ran out of fuel but Mac had a syphon tube and we were only a mile or so from a petrol station.

sounds like I missed a good weekend.

With the sunny weather, where better to be that the beach... but not wearing full leathers!.... Chalets must have been a bit sweaty by the end.

I'm home unlocked the door just before 16.00 hrs. Left at 10.00 & had a mellow ride back along the A303...Kin 'el it was hot!

Poor Frank, I tucked Neu Red up back in the MacCave...it was 95*f in there !

Pic's will follow but I took over 50 so it may be some time !

Yes the key snapping was unfortunate indeed but Malc knew the cobbler who cut keys. As it happend he had all the bits* to code the chip cost £40 per key. I had 2 done just in case.

Had another fab weekend, bit sweaty at times but that Storm meets for ya ! :lol:

Quote of the weekend at the meal on Sat night...Bazza after another dose of Tony Houmour....'' I'm all Tony'd out...''

* Actually he may not have had all the bits as he was a transvestite. Malc claims he had breasts, I don't know how he knew this fact, no news of missing genitalia.

But as you point out Kev it was a big girls blouse he/she was wearing...are you psychic ?

Great to hear everyone back safe and sound.
I hate to say it but the weather was almost too good 8O Just realised I didn't get my knee down (again) I might have to ride a bit quicker in future.

A huge big thanks to Malc for leading us a right merry trail and organising everything again......did you take a test ride this afternoon ?
:D :D
My new ride is a bit of a Howler and I love to make her Squeal

No, rode the Fazer for a few miles and it's still a good bike and the fairing works so thought I don't need one with no fairing., as nice as the Speed is I think i'll leave it for now, I'm going to ride my GSXR Wednesday eve and if it still frustrates me I may have another think about it all.


How was the suspension on beaky ?
