Hi all.
This post will not make sense to all but those where there will know that Alan drove up in the SLK and he has now asked me to recommision his bike and get it back on the road. He might not do the rideouts but hopes to get to future weekends on two wheels.

Regards Peter.

A good time was had by all. Many thanks to all that came along. Here's a shot of the bikes and most of the riders taken at the highest pub in the UK:

You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Who does the second bike in (R1200RS) belong to? You were just leaving Peterboro services when I noticed the Boxertrix sticker. I was stood at the side of the building having a quick sarny and drink with a white GS

That would be me. As I was leaving, I thought, that guy looks a bit like Dave... Doh! Did you spot the fella leaving about 10 seconds before me on the lovely looking HP2 Sport?

Cheers,
