Many thanks to Geoff for an excellent run; avoiding the showers until Tunbridge Wells on the return journey was particularly skillful. Normal photos have been posted - I will add a few stills from the video in the next few hours.

Regards
Chris J.

My apologies for today. The first thing was,I had found the cafe previously but never eaten there and did not know it was going to take so long to get fed. The second thing was getting lost due to a road closure and not having the route in the sat nav. I hope you enjoyed some of the day if not all. I enjoyed myself even though I had no speedo at times and total brake failure warning lights flashing which did not help.

Nice one Geoff.

Particularly liked the little twisty road between Camper Sands and Rye, excellent fun. Was that one of your's Geoff on the ZX6R waiting in Rye? We went left........ he was pointing right. Oops.

Thanks Ian for a great day, never seen Great Dixter from so many angles. (only joking) Sorry had to duck out early for an early bath in Tonbridge !!!

See you for France.

Cheers

Geoff,
Thanks for another great ride. How you manage to avoid the rain almost all day I don't know. Can't wait for the next ride.

I agree :lol: Many thanks to Geoff for arranging and CJ for tailing. I got super-soaked on the way home but even that could not ruin the day. It was good to meet lots of new members as well. It was especially nice to see Bruce complete a ride beings he dropped out of the last one half way through :wink:

Morning guys,

I'm pleased you all enjoyed the day. My thanks to Ian for leading the "Elite" Group and to Chris J for sweeping my Group. Also thanks to Guy for waiting in Battle . The rain avoidance? that's the Witch Doctor in me !
Well done Luke for sticking to your post until relieved, yes that was my Grandson Stuart, "Didn't he do well"
Thank you all for your company, it's a pleasure organising runs for the Group.

Geoff P.

I really enjoyed the day too. Thanks as ever to the guys leading & tail ending and of course Geoff.

I'm on nights at the moment & ended up with less than 2hrs sleep yesterday, got soaked, lost, hungry...
...and I'd do it all again, any time. What a brilliant day! 8)

Super people, super roads.

I think I may actually have fallen asleep at a set of lights on the way home though- I hate nights. :cry:

Stu (VFR750),

I will be taking bookings for Stuart Gray to clean our bikes after these wet rides. He says he works but I think its all a bit suspect. Only problem is that I haven't old him about this booking system yet. I am sure he will post a reply on here shortly saying he is full agreement :)
