Not as sunny as yesterday, but it satyed dry so that was a bonus after last month's downpour. :D Nice to meet Mrs and Mr Timeout :D who bolstered the turnout to seven bikes, an impressive three of which were ridden by ladies. :greetings-clappingyellow: :handgestures-thumbup: Must be the highest ratio we've had so far - we need to see Julie out on her new Kawasaki soon! :D

Are you there Graham / Paul - no more lazy Sunday lie ins, get them bikes out of hibernation. :lol: :lol: ;)

Good luck to Lou on her CBT tomorrow. :handgestures-thumbup: :greetings-wavingyellow:

Bloody side winds were a nightmare on the way back but another 84 valueable miles out on the bikes.
Thanks again Martin for organising, if it wasn't for the breakfast club I don't think we'd have got the bikes out over the winter :handgestures-thumbup:

Mmmm, maybe he didn't forget and was just 'distracted'. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Certainly, plenty of choices and too much temptation on the breakfast menu, I need to start looking at the healthier options. :roll: :roll:

CBT renewed and as she was the only one booked in for today she got 3 hours of one to one road training on her bike followed by half an hour on a 600 doing mod 1 stuff on the car park :clap: .
She was offered the chance to take the 600 out on the road but felt too kn@ckered to concentrate :doh. Came back really positive about how much easier the 600's are to ride slowly and regretting not taking it out on the road :doh :doh .

Great news, give her our congratulations. :handgestures-thumbup: It doesn't matter how many times you tell them a 600 is easier to ride than a 125 they never truly believe you until they try it. :roll: :D

I really hope she's encouraged to go on and have a go at Direct Access. :handgestures-fingerscrossed: :handgestures-fingerscrossed:

Good luck if she takes things further. :D
Then there's the guy who emails 50 questions about a 10 quid product, all of which could be answered by googling. So you answer and try to help, he emails again with more and you reply again. After the 5th email its obvious he doesnt actually want it and is basically wasting your time so you reply slower. Then he puts a post on a forum about how you're a twat because you're slow to reply so that whole process just costs you time and reputation, all because the bloke is a massive """"..
