F800Riders.Org Meet

Met up with members of the F800Riders forum at Oundle, Northants yesterday for a rideout and lunch. About 15 bike turned up, mostly F800S & ST's but also 2 650 GS's ( which are F800's anyway despite the name, 2 1200 GS's and a Honda Deauville. It was a fairly short ride to Grafton Water through nice rural twisty small roads. No-one got lost and we only had to do one U-turn so congratulations to our leader Skid! Didn't manage to speak to everyone but managed to put a few faces to the names on the forum. In all it was a lovely sociable day with an interesting bunch of bikers. Just before we left we were joined by Mr Anglia Water Man. I'm not quite sure what he was up to but he kindly posed for a photo with us.

Having set off in the morning at 7.30 and spent over 3 hours on the motorway we decided to stay overnight so that we could enjoy a scenic ride home on nice roads today. With all the bad weather this summer we've got to make the most of all the riding we can get! We set the zumo to avoid autoroutes and highways (!!) then followed it. We had a pleasant though sometimes circuitous route through Oxfordhire and the Cotswolds, luckily avoiding the rain showers. It was so good to get back on the bikes this weekend and have a decent run. Let's hope the weather improves again next weekend as we're taking some biking friends to Pembrokeshire for the bank holiday & would so like to take the bikes not the car.
