Thanks to Phil for a great day out. 266 miles door to door.
At the current rate Phil I'll have found enough for a litre of fuel after another 70 rides!
Legal riding on the beach was an experience, especially in the soft sand on a heavy bike.
Sunbathing while sailing across Windermere.
A couple of heavy but short showers at the end of the day to wash of the mud.
What more could we ask for
Less damage to me this time out but unfortunately the bike didn't cope so well, another indicator wounded and I think the mirror damage is terminal.
Just got to remember to keep out of Pete B's way in future. If I follow he has an off and blocks the trail, when in front he keeps trying to hit me when I stop.
Thanks to all the lads for your help getting me going over the rough bits and through the mud. I'll have to speed up the search for some new tryes.

Not any longer, been down to the bank and paid them in this morning, don't want to lose out on the interest.
