this was meant to be a rideout, unfortunately the weather was against us
and I ended up Billy no mates at Newlands Corner
Not a biking do, but mum and dads 50th Wedding Anniversary
and a brief drop into the local AMOC party, with dead camera batteries ooops
Hog Roast and live band great and meeting Friends
meeting a mate for a swift half in Teddington saw this motor torpedo boat, different and apparently the last active MTB and the river in the sunshine, a lovely evening
after driving down to Stockbridge in Hampshire to meet parents, I had a nice ride around the Surrey lanes, stopping briefly at BoxHill as well
and on my way to Colchester, I went to Kent it was a planned diversion to an American diner at a garden centre after the party I ended up at the Club for a great 3 piece band called Headlines, playing many tracks by Clapton, Hendrix and the likes.
and a trip to the Kempton autojumble to buy exhaust brackets found as ever a few nice bikes
and the reason for bad running identified as cracked exhausts, removing it showed up my lack of mechanic skills,
and a lovely Wednesday evening found me riding down to Loomies in 'ampshire to meet some of the Southampton and District MCC
a brilliant ride back as well
and sadly snow stopped play today but took a few pictures through the parks
not a biking thing but with the weather so bad, the sanctuary of the Working Mens Club Variety Show was a welcome relief from the snow and ice
and me mates said if weather not too bad ride to Guildford
well it was only a steady rain, and you could tall spring only 5 days away as rain was warmer cafe was warmer still :)
and during a little wander round the surrey lanes, I came across the Sheila's wheels car at Reigate
so I had a day off, sun was up sky was blue, so I headed off to
play no great destination in mind but then had a stroke of inspiration
and down to Molesey again, this time for the B17's Brilliant
a lovely sunny day and so a short hop up to the Ace to meet a few others from the HDRCGB and admire a few of the bikes on Singles Sunday, the French version of the 59 club also visiting, a lovely sunny afternoon
while at Boxhill awaiting the start of the ride out a load of exotic cars arrived
The problem appears to be battery so a quick trip to Warrs for some spare parts, by Quick I mean getting very lost
here I met Dave and Steve
who were trying
and a chilly day, but hey, places to see, and go... so off I go, a brief stop at Boxhill and Newlands
and then poor Milly goes pop and stops, needing recovery, seems it may be fuel injection... we shall see
26000 miles on the clock and another tyre is needed, so off to Guildford tyres , then a potter round the Surrey Lanes.
with a brief stop at Newlands Corner.
Bets being taken for how long the new tyres stay this white
an evening ride out to Molesey to See Cat and the Hot tin Trio, they were Brilliant
dont you just love days off in the week, went down to book my MOT and then a wander around, bikes are at Beakies.
firstly a trip down to local american Car meet, then down to boxhill, 2 seperate slide shows
and the first of the Kempton Autojumbles for 2008
and Shaws Harley Davidson held a showcase at the winter gardens at Eastbourne, a very windy ride, but not too cold
met some friends, but still don't like the new roadking.
