    Met Nigel on the way down and just chilling at the upgraded Travelodge! Can't start too soon, the evening could be over before it's started, if you know what I mean! Looking forward to the meet up later. :)

    Home safe and sound in pretty good time despite hitting some heavy showers. Thanks to everyone who came along and made this trip such a good one. We got lucky with the weather for the most part and had a really good laugh as well as Edumacating ourselves a little bit. Heard from Noisy who got home safe, he said the worst part of the journey was that first bit from Bayeaux to Caen, I'd agree and if we call all ride in those conditions using the drop off without misplacing anyone we can do it anywhere! Until the next time guys.

    I'm back in the arms of my broken garage!

    Thanks all for a great weekend, Saturday night was quite memorable at the chimps tea party end. Sunday ride out was good, lets see what's Lidl Steve's footage come out like!

    Nod of appreciation to Smudge and Edders for leading and Mad Dog (and Smudge again) for tail ending.

    To the next one.

    Me and the Jellymould arrived home at 16:30 with a dry ride all the way, dried out my undercrackers on the ride so good to go for another week. Many thanks to Smudge for organising and leading and MD for Tec'ing par excellence. To the rest of you, thank you for an excellent time, always over too quickly
    Bike washed of its debris francais, 671 miles door to door

    Whats next??

    Got back with no rain, cleaned the bike and put it to bed before a downpour at 4.45. Thanks to all for a great weekend. Thanks to the Northern monkeys for looking after me and my finances on Sat night. Sat behind Mad Dog and Bob up until A303 turn off. A great long weekend was had by all.
