Had intentions of going (went last year) but have decided to do a complete front and rear caliper rebuild instead, need my brakes more than the ride out, slightly gutted though!

Just checked weather for monday , high of 18 deg, moterate breeze , cloudy , little chance of rain , thats good enough for me  :thumbup


i'll be coming from high wycombe , bucks  jct 4 M40 , if anyone wants to tag along iam flexable with my route and dont mind a detour to meet up , what that really means is, I dont really have a route, just a destination and am most likley to get lost  :lol




looking forward to It already   :)

Mr.Red, if you can get to the Oakdene at whatever time is good for you, we could just have a drink there and then go to The Airport caff on the A20 for breakfast, via mainly B roads, then go over the top to Canterbury and on to Margate. Just a suggestion, if you have something in mind, then all the better :thumbup .

Yep, that's fine Mr.Red. That will get us down to the  Airport Cafe for mid dayish after a chill out at The Oakdene. A spot of breakfast, and on to Margate. :thumbup

Make it 8am then. I'm good with that. It would mean you'd have to leave home really early though :lol :lol .

A good days riding on the mighty thou , great seeing you guys again and a big thank you to ROBBO for planning and leading the group from Oakdene cafe down to the Airport cafe just north of folkstone , some good twisty B roads and a good breakfast at the end , then a blast up the A28 through Canterbury and onto margate , left home at 8am and back in at 7pm ,288 miles for the day on 1.5 tanks of fuel , not going to work out the MPG because thats not why you buy a 1ltr bike , but I think thats pretty good ...




a couple of bikes that caught my eye    :thumbup

Glad you enjoyed the day Mr.Red, and we managed to stay dry as well which is a bonus. We left just at the right time. I showed 188 miles before the light came on, so just needed a splash to get home. Hope we can arrange another day soon.  :thumbup
