Thanks Scootypuff - (The italian was fine! :-) )My Burger was the white one with the top box. I can't remember the guys name who had the other white one - he had a RAM Xgrip that I am now trying to find on the web as it fits onto the rear brake reservoir - but I can't remember his name! Doh!

Thank you Mottza for an awesome start to the season. Done 155 miles in total, cold morning 4 degrees to start which jumped to 16-17 as the day went. Pretty good turn out from muppets. Great to see old&new faces. Saw some very interesting machinery at the hut but burger waiting wasn't too enjoyable :)


Few photos posted on rideout photos section. Noted your suggestions for a Kent meet. I'd love to arrange one, but being a ride out organising virgin, I'm not sure what kind of prep is needed (apart from deciding on a route obviously!) I'll think of something and may get one of you to review it beforehand ;)

Mine was the white xmax. I got the ram reservoir adapter off ebay. The seller isn't on there any more but just search "RAM Offset Reservoir Cover Mount Base with 1" Ball"

Murat, just a simple ride away from the main roads, not too gravelly. Plot away on Google maps. The A225 through Eynsford etc is a good road. I'm sure Dave and Richie know a few good roads.

There's no special skill required though to run a ride out. Just set a date and route and see who's tempted (see earlier comments re food).

I'll have a look in the ice cream tub of Ram mounts kicking about from when I owned a fleet of bikes might be lucky

Some of you might recall seeing the dude by the side of the road on our way into the hut, shooting pics of bikers passing by. The photos he shot are online now. I already bought mine :) It's a bit expensive but then again, I don't have the luxury of having a cameraman by the side of the road on my trips so I think it's worth it.

Our group can be seen about a quarter way down on this page: https://www.bikerpics.co.uk/p751915133

Sorry but still see it as intrusive and morally wrong

I can see what you are saying. But for me I like the photo's being captured.

He does take a frontal view so no number plates are viewable (at least for bikes).
