Cheers CC, Looking like the the battery has collapsed. The RAC guy that arrived was a biker so actually knew what he was taking about got her started using jump leads. We put the battery on the tester and it failed. When she is running the battery voltage is around 14.4 volts which is normal so that tells me the rather expensive bit is working. Managed to ride home without any probs but if I stopped the engine there is no guaranties that she would have started again. Bit peeved that I couldn't make it I was looking forward to meeting some new faces and seeing Julie again. Hopefully new battery will be installed tomorrow and normal service to be resumed.

Nice to meet some of you for a natter at last and very thoughtful of someone to arrange for the Vincent Owners Club to come and join us, nice to see old bikes being ridden rather than polished.

Just going back and looking at who said they were coming and who actually came, has Laur66 set a BM record by coming on a meet the day she signed up?

Still think maybe sometimes we should have name tags. Realised only after I'd left who one person was that I hadn't actually spoken to, and there was another forum regular who I'd not met before face to face, who, after an hour or so, said 'oh my God it's you' or something like.

So, apologies if anyone thinks I was ignoring them. I try not to do rude, I really don't.

cracking day out gromit! was home cold & tired at half 8 - the blast down the A1/M1 being the killer!!! me no like motorways on a bike & especially when it's windy/blustery & @ night!! & poor Karey hanging onto the back of Kasaki....think that's one bike he's handing back to his dad never to be ridden again!!

We had a very nice ride back through Pool after a generally good day. Nice to meet everyone again and to see so many new faces, keep 'em coming.

Well.. what a brilliant day! Was good to see so many of you and great to meet new faces. A huge THANK YOU to Kasaki for the pillion, it was much appreciated, even tho i whinged every time we stopped... Me and Cruisers/high speed/high winds just dont go! but he was an absolute star and gave up his Z1 to borrow his dads cruiser, thinking it wud be better to pillion....errrr... don't think hes gonna borra it agen.... lol Thanks again Kasaki, despite hanging on for dear life, I really did enjoy the ride. The ride down into Leyburn and Kettlewell etc was brilliant, some really good roads. But like Stella says, the A1/M1 was the killer for me too ... i no like motorways either! lol I am aching all over today, I feel like i have swam the channel...TWICE! lol, but it was worth it. Have a good day everyone, those out on bikes, ride safe. It's very blustery here today.
