I`ll start with an apology as this doesn`t really contain enough 'meat' to be a proper Ride Report. However,I thought some of you guys might enjoy the photos,so I hope the Mods will allow this post. This weekend I went to the Ogri MCC clubhouse at Kemble Airfield near Cirencester for Bab`s 50th Birthday Party. There`s lots of photos from the event but I won`t post them as it was a private occasion. However,I thought some of you may like to see some of the others I took en route. I decided to go on my recently bought Royal Enfield Woodsman as it still needs running-in and the trip there and back would be a good way of getting some miles on it and getting to know the bike. Loading it up with camping gear and a change of clothes was my first adventure Saying that,it was quite fun working out how to load it,and attaching a `58 Pattern Army 'pannier' on the side that doesn`t have the high level exhaust. It`s far too easy and boring when you just lob everything into a couple of panniers and a topbox ! GPS ??? :eek1 We don`t need no stinking GPS !! Instead of the horribly busy A417 from Gloucester to Cirencester I take the A46 Stroud road then turn off at Sheepscombe and go cross country to Kemble via Miserdon,Edgeworth,Sapperton and Coates. Here`s one reason why I like the route I take.... And here`s another reason.....most excellent !! The party went really well...a great time was had. On the return route,I went on reserve. I left Chateau Tarka on the Wirral with a full tank,and went on reserve after 240 miles. It only took 11 litres to refill the tank !! :huh Another thing happened on the way home. Unleash the BEAST !! There you go....as I said,not really enough for a Ride Report...but I thought someone may enjoy my photos.
