If you enjoy riding in pouring rain with the bike flashing an ice warning at you periodically then this was a great day. If your enthusiasm is more moderate then it was still an enjoyable ride. There were only four of us, but one was an Associate! The destination was switched to a cafe in Newmarket, and we rode using the buddy system. The cafe, whose name I have forgotten, was pleasant and good value. Mick and I rapidly acquired bikes which were absolutely filthy, Alan's looked a bit grubby, but the Harley remained entirely presentable; all of which shows you that there is no justice in the world, but you knew that anyway, didn't you? I left the ride at Dunmow on the return leg after 85 miles. Many thanks to Mick & Alan. A few pictures have been posted.

Regards
Chris J.

Thanks Chris. Great ride in the rain - return was without the rain till I got near home. For those that avoid the rain your missing on acquiring an important skill developing smooth riding skills and confidence.
Chris, Bob is a recent new member who joined from RoSPa. Great ride. Thanks to Alan, Chris and Bob.

Ah! That figures, since he seemed an assured rider. No offence intended, Bob; I am just used to people on group rides who I do not recognise as one of the usual suspects being associates.

And, for my own future reference, the cafe was the Street Cafe on the High St.

I can only echo your sentiments Mick - you can beat a good ride in the rain. I was out with 2 very good riders we too were going to the Street Cafe in Newmarket but decided we would make the floor too wet so went to Red Lodge - where it doesn't really matter! Returned deliberately on some very wriggly back roads - great morning. How many other group members braved the forecast?....................Richard P.

Enjoying riding in the rain!

I just don't get it and, I know after 60 years of riding, I never will but, for those who do there's no shortage of opportunities.

Gimme the dry anytime. LOL

I'm with you there Geoff!

I've only been riding for 50 years but in my opinion, riding in the rain is like hitting yourself over the head with a hammer - it's nice when you stop!!
