Chris, just txt you before I saw this!

We'll be crossing the Humber bridge at about 12:30ish so would be good to meet up and ride about together.

Hah, just sent you a txt before reading this!

12:30ish sounds OK. Maybe meet up at Barnetby Top (I'll have done 5 miles - I'll need to refuel pokefun) and head down to Willingham for a cuppa and to plan what to do next?

Hi Chris,
although I feel very guilty I can make this on Sunday - Willingham Woods for 2pm or sooner.

I asked the Daughter if she would like to have some time with a friend on Sunday - this biking will be the ruin of me! Don\'t Know

Chris - how about meeting at the truck stop just over the roundabout on the A15/A18 junction. Stay on the A15, follow signs for the airport and the truck stop is on the right before you start going down hill. There's more space and better tarmac there

John - if you can make Willingham by1:15pm that would be great. I think the plan is to head south first and then Don\'t Know We'll decide at Willingham.

Haven't spoken to Pete since the beginning of the week. He can't get out until 1pm I believe.
Chris - if you could be at the bridge for 1pm he could tag along as he's based in Barton.
I'll try and catch up with him tomorrow.

Yes, great to catch up with you today. Glad to hear you're back safe and sound.

Done less than 100 miles - I know that cos the bike didn't need refuelling! Most done on the short section of The High Street between home and Willingham Woods which I rode 4 times. I know it's a good road, but..... that's not the best bit!

Still the best bit was, finally, getting Mechy's bike to start after the key disintegrated in the lock. Mad And he didn't have to use the big hammer I brought, just in case. whistle The Duc has just earned it's RAC stickers left thumb up

The amusing incident was make even more hilarious by having virtually no mobile phone reception where it happened so discussions with the RAC went well! Shocked I suggested Pete went and walked around the second car park at Willingham, really to stop him kicking seven bells of $#!& out of the bike; to see if he could get better reception. John and I watch on as he paced the tarmac in ever decreasing circles getting more and more frustrated. At one point I was sure he was about to throw his iPhone across the car park. Aside to John - 'Guess there's no reception over there either then!' green smile

Pete, toys and pram - you put it together. Was as amusing as ever! pmsl

Still all's ended well and everyone got home, Just another memorable biking day.

210miles for me after finding out that the place I had been told to meet was....a meeting place for just 1!!! Lol

Finally meet up at Willingham Wood, got me tea and cheese burger, then panick set in as I saw Chris Eddie & Terry all geared up ready to leave, thought I was going to have to ditch it. Turned out it was just the northern group heading back.

Then we had the incident with the Fazer. Mmmm, thought Peter had got sunburnt in the heat until Chris raised his finger to his lip! Steam Ears

A very interesting day.

er excuse me but at what point did i get REALLY angry , apart from what the rac said ??,, 3 and a half hours and not one paddy fit,, the only angry bit in the 2nd carpark was when the phone showed 1 bar and a car blew its horn at me as was standing where he wanted to park,, didnt like the response i gave him, so invited him out to discuss it at which point he declined and parked at the other end !!, knew i need a size 6 allen key and would be ok, took less than 3 minutes when i got one to starting the bike!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!,, again thankyou to RAC chris for all the running around etc,, and john i owe you a pint for the use of your phone

In a situation like that its possible to tape the broken off key fob to the barrel, it should pick up the signal from there.
