    The plan is coming together JC. If WR can get his disc bolts tightened for the trip then I hope to tag along with him from the Peterborough end and if we aren't delayed by a 2nd cup of coffee then we might just make the 11:30 rendezvous at the White Horse.

    No problem Martin do you or WR want me to bring tools to check his disk bolts checked mine tonight all ok but this should never happen.The weather seems to be against us I will be riding mine up to Silverstone tomorrow morning to get my miles up want o get it run in ASAP the handling is additive . Anyone know what Loctite we should use on WRs disc bolts as i have various types could bring them to Welford.

    Fearnoughts and oilskins for early starters tomorrow. Trust the NOC members will have some cleaning kit on hand. Don't forget 2p for the phone in case of breakdowns!

    Darn the forecast changes so quickly. Kettering doesn't look too bad with no hint of the wet stuff but up here in Lincs the morning ride will be rain,rain,rain - I guess my wax will get it's first real test.

    Didn’t say I don’t like ‘em... just that he might struggle getting it past the NOC die hards standing guard with their pitchforks, tin hats, and Home Guard arm bands...

    “Don’t tell ‘em Pike”....

    It looks like the East Coast, Lincolnshire down through Cambridgeshire and beyond has heavy rain all morning so I might take an initial hit with the rain and head for Leicestershire as quick as poss where forecast looks dry. This will mean taking a longer 'scenic route' which A) will be great fun if roads are dry, B) help dry me out and C) will make me miss the 11:30@Norton but should be ok for Welford@noon.

    Weather apps have dramatically improved in the kettering area. Last night was horrendous, close to losing control of the car on the A1 inside lane.

    I'm in Rutland and looking at the earlier posts it sound like some of you might be passing nearby. What's the current plan for riding in from the east?

    Weather here is dry at mo. I plan to leave at 10 to arrive around noon. I can come down via Oundle or Oakham way but I wouldn't get to those till after 11. Let me know if you want to hook up still.

    Oakham works for me, I’m only 5 minutes away.
