I don't know about the rest of you, but the only really sphincter puckering moment was caused by finding a wide spread of agricultural crap just after a fast, damp turn.

A couple of new machines made an appearance. Yoshikid had a new Triumph 800 triple which he is deeply in love with. Mark and Kim were on a glorious sounding Aprillia RSV4, which most of the rest of us are deeply in love with.

I think the staff at the Railway Inn were glad to see us because they had very few other customers. Just for a change we ate indoors.

The collection produced 34.50 which I have PayPal'd to Spankme.

As for the photo above, L to R.......

Glad you guys had a good day........and there were no mishaps despite farmer Gile's best effort!

REALLY wanted to be there but it was hacking it down first thing and there was no way I'm brave enough to scrub in a brand new pair of tyres in the wet (only got my wheels back late Friday....refit finished Sat morning!!) so plan B I thought, meet at Blackmoor Gate...

Plan B.............scuppered more torrential thundery showers

Pan C.............be at HG Taunton to form a one man welcome back committee. Looked promising for a while mid afternoon.....got my gear out, got changed and......

......it fcuking pissed down again!

Dave we'll have to do our own mini SW Rideout before 5th October!

That was the cause of the weather problem. It seem that my soul does not have quite the same bargaining value as Warren's. Sorry guys

Every time I start thinking the world is all bad, then I start to think there's people out there having fun on motorcycles, then it makes me take another look.

Again, so sorry I missed this but other priorities well surpassed coming sadly.

Hopefully I will see you all in April and look forward to it. Sorry the sun did not make an appearance, if it was any consolation, it was not much better down South anyway. Will have to try and remedy that for 2012!
