Had a great day, many miles covered and loads of new 961ers met. Just the ticket :)

    Wow what could so easily have been a dire day turned into something really special. Great company; great weather; great roads and a huge thanks to NOC for hosting us.

    A couple of memories from the day.... a welcome coffee break en-route, with new friends Richard (Titanium CR) and Roger (Silver Sport)

    I clocked 1k miles ....

    Very enjoyable day, I nearly "wimped out" or rather I did the night before but quite amazingly the weather completely proved the numerous weather apps wrong and I met roger and mark at my local coffee shop in Oundle. Nice blast through my neck of the woods avoiding the new potholes and then a slightly less inspiring cruise to Welford on the A14. You cannot complain about boring roads when Blightly the Almightly journeyed from Kent and back to be there.

    Thanks to the Northants and Leics owners club and the pub for having us. Nice steak and kidney pie and a pedigree to wash it down. The plan to get home was along the boring A14 but Roger (wodgedodge) convinced mxmartin and I to follow him on the back route to Oakam (although I peeled off at Uppingham) and I am glad we did. What a fantastic twisty turny country route, I am sure I got rid of many of my straggly edge dangly bits on my new tyres and was very pleased once again with the handling and brakes.

    Arrived home, very little ear ache, collected an Indian for family and washed it down with an Abbot Ale. Not far off a 10/10 day. Well done gents for all the great pics

    I got a text from Roger asking if I got 'air' over that hump-back bridge.... the bike was sure-footed and soaked it up but I came out of my saddle a good few inches!
