A day off from work a reasonable day weather wise, and I fancied some sea air.
so it was down to Brighton, then along the coast, stopping at the Longman at Wilmington and then Home.

ride back from Dartmoor as on own took a scenic route
Meeting Phil and friends at local just a short ride down to the bike meet at the Pointz and then off to the Cardinal Wolsey for rock and roll music. a very pleasant evening. And playing with "black and white mode worked well.
just a short ride out through Surrey and Sussex a very scenic route, taking several more abc pics on the way

Kempton Auto jumble as ever a large selection of different bikes in the car park, and several bikes temptingly for sale on the stalls,
Day trip to France with Tony, his first time to St Omer and he was impressed, a gloriously sunny day, we got there in time to wander around the market, and a nice lunch.
October 1st Dorking Boots fair
a rather damp morning, and a quieter event than usual possibly due to weather, and maybe because the shop has gone, nothing persuaded any money out of me this time.
and after an out of the blue message from Freak, a pleasant evening spent in the Bell inn Stow on the Wold, with Forum members from Bikerlifestyle and 100% and then enjoyed the hospitality by Freak and Kerri, (Pete does an ace breakfast)
thanks for the great evening folks
Pumpkins 13th Oct
a nice sunny afternoon out, so off to find Pumpkins prior to Halloween
Middlefarm Apple Festival 22 Oct
a bit different this one, a apple festival at Middlefarm near Lewes in East Sussex, the celebration of the apple mainly seemed to be Cider, with dancing, food, a fair ground, and music tent, oh and plenty of real ale, a nice way to spend a day.
Pictured here, are friends john and Lou and their Huntersmoon Morris men.
October 28th, on my way through to the Ace, The Cenotaph London
Another Autojumble at Kempton, I sooo liked the Triumph with Sportster Tank
having started to worry about the state of my tyres , I headed out on a foul windy day for a new set (which need to be washed to remove the blue)
on the way back there was a tempest of biblical proportions, I snapped these couple of snaps at Horsley Towers before the floods hit
the floods having receded for a moment I headed off for the Kempton Auto jumble
It was packed with queues going to enter back miles from turnstiles, apparently the gates were opened an hour early as well , the Panther Owners Club turned up enmass I decided not to queue, and enjoyed a ride to Putney.
at Putney I reached riverside, an aladins cave of Harley stuff, thank goodness I did not have my credit card on me
a very scenic route back, and started to get ready for tonight's HOG party and tomorrows Toy run.
