Hi all.
December's ride will be to Hillcrest Nurseries(IP31 2DU) near Barningham.
Ride will be paced to support all levels, plus re-grouping at a couple of points to support this.

Meet: 09:15 - Sainsburys Springfield(CM2 5PA).
Depart: 09:30 sharp.
Note: As toilets open at 09:30 in Sainsburys suggest you go to the BP garage down the road prior to meet.
Distance: 62 miles out and 63 return.
Full tank of fuel - for those who need a top up let me know and will stop near Hillcrest.

NOTE: If weather conditions are poor then I'll post cancellation by Saturday midday.

See you there.
Please make a note of contact numbers:
REgards
Mick and Alan.
07762 889408
07760 452993

No associates. No leader (Mick's bike wouldn't start). No visibility. Alan & 3 others turned up. Alan proposed a ride to Red Lodge, but I cried off because I hate riding in foggy conditions with a visor constantly misting up, and further south it was not so bad. I hope they had a good time and that the fog was localised. Three snaps from the car park have been posted.

Regards
Chris J.

Mick, my KTM had an ECU upgrade a fortnight ago which has made it more ready to start when cold, if that was your problem.

Thanks to you guys who turned out - Chris, Rob Spinks & Alan Green. Unfortunately I was repairing the F800GS (alternator burnout caused by regulator) and the KTM struggled to turn over. Battery was replaced but it appears the starter motor is probably the cause - early ones have an issue. It's now at Jim Aim's for checking.
Chris, thanks for update on yours.

Regards
Mick
