As I wheeled the bike out the rain started after what had promised to be a dry but overcast departure.

I made good time and met up with Nick Smallwood at Keele but not before what could have been a complete wipeout. Heading towards Holmes Chapel a thoughtful farmer had turned the road completely brown with mud. Despite me pointing the bike straight it threw a complete wobbler with the rear end fishtailing and front doing a full on tank slapper. I was just a complete passenger and I only thing it pulled through due to the 70/30 tyres. I think if I had road tyres I’d be down.

We met up with Paul Oxborough on time at Cherwell and arrived early at the H Cafe. We met up with some Mental Health Motorbike ambassadors and then got off to Sammy Millers Motorcycle museum where we got to meet the man himself.
