Now then

I've arranged a ride out to CMC motorbike shop in Chesterfield this Saturday. Now it looks like it's gonna rain, so all those with bikes made of sugar look away now Ride out to CMC Chesterfield - Sat 9th March 2013 950996 Ok, theweather may not be brilliant but you only live once, it's not a rehearsal Ride out to CMC Chesterfield - Sat 9th March 2013 964788



One Guy's coming from Oxford, others from Lancashire, Yorkshire, Merseyside, so anyone who fancies it, get yourself out and come for a chat, coffee, bacon sarnie etc. I'm meeting three or four lads at the Woodall Motorway services, southbound 08:30-08:45, quick smoke then riding to CMC for 09:30.

Now then

Ste txt to see if I was still going because it was shit outside and when i said I was he said "We must be ferkin mad, see you there" Ride out to CMC Chesterfield - Sat 9th March 2013 Icon_lol
It was pissing down when I set off just after 07:30 but the temperature was ok, not too cold. As I approached Woodall it got very cold all of a sudden Ride out to CMC Chesterfield - Sat 9th March 2013 Icon_anger .
I waited at Woodall Services to see if anyone was gonna turn up and no one had by 08:55. I quickly checked the site on my phone, good job I did, Fran13 (Dave) had posted he would meet me there so I hung about another few minutes and low and behold he turned up Ride out to CMC Chesterfield - Sat 9th March 2013 Icon_biggrin

We had a walk around the shop and it was a bit busier now. They had a Honda NR750 on a stand with a fizzie and a Duc 916. They only made 300 NR's and I've never seen one in the flesh. Probably worth 85,000 - 1000,000 Ride out to CMC Chesterfield - Sat 9th March 2013 Icon_eek It's on loan to them by the owner, brave man.

We had a look in the discount shop too but bought no more. None of us had to be home early so we had a ride to Matlock Bath.

We had a drink and I had a fish, no chips to keep my food intake up Ride out to CMC Chesterfield - Sat 9th March 2013 Icon_wink
We said goodbye to Ste who headed west and Dave and I headed North. It was very wet now and the spray was poor on the M1 but we kept a good 80-85 mph pace. Dave peeled off to Wakefield and I ploughed on home. I'd gone onto reserve but thought I'd just get home, mmmm, not quite, she spluttered to a halt on a roundabout 3 miles from home but there is a petrol station right on the roundabout so pushed her in Ride out to CMC Chesterfield - Sat 9th March 2013 Icon_cool and put 20,74 litres in her Ride out to CMC Chesterfield - Sat 9th March 2013 Icon_lol Home for 16:35, bike into the garage and I made myself a hot chocolate to warm up
