Sunday April 27th

We'll go for a 10.30 meet for this one as it's a bit of a longer run from the Leicester area than usual. I may even go the long way home if the weather's ok. :D

Thanks admin, gives us a bit longer to get there.
We've got Monday off so will be carrying on around the Peaks and grab a hotel if the weathers not too bad :handgestures-fingerscrossed:

Lucky with the weather, which stayed dry despite a bit of a dodgy forecast. :D Nice spot, quite quiet, but may well be a bit livelier come the summer.

May drop in again on the way to Thundersprint in a couple of weeks, or maybe try the Ashbourne Bike Nights held there on a Thursday.

Took a chance on the weather and did the scenic route home via Matlock for an ice cream, with Tony, Lou, Alex, Digga and myself narrowly avoiding parking tickets for parking on the pavement. We thought it was ok because there were loads of bikes on there, but it seems the regulars are clued up and cover their number plates, as apparently the wardens aren't allowed to uncover them to issue a ticket.

Good to see Bref back out on a bike again :D , and lovin' Tony's new Suzuki Big Boy 8-) -

What is Bref riding these days?
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 """"..

Glad you had a good day, hopefully will get along to the next one.

I like that Suzuki Fat Boy not heard of or seen one before. :handgestures-thumbup:

It's a Suzuki 'Bigboy', an irony that Louise made much fun of :oops: :lol: :lol: :lol: .
It's a 250 single that wouldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding but when riding places like The Peaks with a Vanvan in tow it is great fun 8-) .
We took both bikes up in the Van, rode much of the Southern half of the Peaks yesterday, stopped at The Fox House at Longshaw and then did the Northern half today in glorious weather, loved it :auto-biker: :auto-biker: .

Great to see some extra faces out on Sunday and many thanks for organising Martin :greetings-clappingyellow: :handgestures-thumbup:

Thanks Rob, it is an aquired taste to ride and a World away from the GS but when riding slower you see much more instead of looking for speed cameras and you tend to choose smaller/quieter road.
I'd forgotten how much you can see in The Peaks within a relatively close proximity
Just a few pics taken during 165 miles over 2 days

Nice one Tony. :handgestures-thumbup: Just goes to show you don't need to go far, or have a big bike to find some great roads and stunning scenery. 8-)
