Hi,

Today was my first blast out on the 950SM. I tagged along with Terry950SM and Chris (sorry dont know your ID mate). All sporting the 950's of course and the weather held out perfectly. The route was great and should be enough of a reason for Terry not to sell up. Sadly Ell Tell could not make it due to 'wedding commitments' but i think he has had his orders not to get scuffed up before the big day! Good luck for next week BTW Tell.

Ok, now for the geekyness.

Here is a map of the route; (we had a brew in Haws and i forgot to switch it back on to Devils bridge)

Is that you house you start and finish from?
Will there be anyone in tomorrow afternoon?
Do you have much security?
Will a pair of bolt croppers be enough or do we need to put the battery powered angle grinder in the white Transit?

;) :eek:

Yup my address is;

Jon
East bound M63 J3
Accrington

Lots of people will be passing by but the bike will be left hanging upside down from the carriageway so nobody can see it.

I thought you had gone a bit OTT on the hard landscaping of your front garden ;)

Missed out there. Glad you enjoyed it Jon, sorry I couldnt make it.

Probably not going to get to ride it for a month or so. Im leaving it with my brother while im away so he can read to it before bed.

Was a good day out, thought we would catch the rain but it held off. Did see you Paul but bit quick to chat ! There's a couple of corner to catch you out and a friggin massive jump( well to me, never done off road/jumps) and at 70+ both wheels off and caught unaware, FUN.

Nice to meet up with Terry and Jon will be again before the weather gets really crap, just need a new rear now its fooked.
