OOOps!! Sorry Paul, didn't realise that the 20th April was Richard's ride.
How about Saturday 29th March.

Hi Geoff,
My apologies, having suggested a pre-ride. The 29th is the closest weekend to my wedding anniversary. (I'm already gettting away with not going away the weekend before because of the Super Sausage run :wink: ) I daren't ask for both!
would Sat 5th or Sat 12th be any good?
More apologies
Paul.

Hi Paul,

Wouldn't want to be responsible for your early demise ! Saturday 12th April would be OK.

Geoff.

Stuart,

It's a day ride in France, not a circumnavigation of the Globe.

The price is £29.00 return and the mileage in France is 140, unless of course you're planning to go via Route Napoleon !

Ahhh yes Geoff.

Slight cock-up.......... don't book the Short Stay Saver fare......... it is £65.00

I should have pressed the DAY/OVERNIGHT tab on the screen which is, as you say £29.00 .


However it's all sorted now

Hi Geoff,
I just wondered if you knew what time train you were getting out for the pre ride and if we'd meet at Lakeside?
(sounds like we're eloping :lol: )

Geoff, maybe Stuart is saying it takes 800 miles worth of fuel to do 140 miles on the CB500 :shock:
Could be time for a service and a tune Stuart :lol: :lol:

Paul,

We'll take the 08.42hrs from Folkestone and the 16.50hrs from Calais on April 12th. Meet in the Coach Park at Thurrock services at 06.20hrs

Anyone wishing to join us for the pre-ride is welcome.

If anyone's wondering, we're just good friends, anyway, Clive is coming along as chaperone.


Keep the rubber on the road. :wink:

Good to have you along Nikki and Dave.

Collected the Pan last Thursday after Brian Wybrow had worked on it for another week and, he told me he had checked and tested the whole ignition system again, without detecting anything untoward. He suspected the ECU earlier in the week but having tried one from a new Pan established that it was not the cause of the problem. I rode for three hours on the Thursday with it performing 100% On the Friday I did the same thing and between the two days covered 300 miles with no sign of a problem, I am left wondering about possible fuel contamination, only time will tell. Kinda disconcerting.
