I'm with you on this Chris but will confirm Friday as weather not looking promising at the moment with 60% rain forecast, though turning to snow only expected in Norfolk coast

All forecasts I have looked at (5 of them) state dry, sunny but cold (4C ish). Reasonable breeze will make it bitter. But heated grips and layers will resolve that.

Yes. But they're getting there. 904km to Calais.

That's a coincidence, I've just been travelling around Droitwich on an SH300 without a sidecar. Quite invigorating.

I just checked on Facebook. They are arriving at ace at 3pm now rather than 2pm. And arriving at Brands at 12.30. We will head to the oakdene cafe beforehand for brunch. Meeting at the new Starbucks at Colchester tollgate (near the new KFC/nandos on the sainsburys roundabout) at 10.15. We'll be at Oakdene, Wrotham by 11.20.

I've posted it on another site but Harley riding snowflakes aren't responding as it's a bit cold for the poor cherubs :oops: though to be fair Rizo has no MOT (the only HOG rider I know actually doesn't give up in winter)

I'll see you at 10.15 Chris I've text Toecutter to meet us at Oakdene

Heated grips I will be glad to have. Don't think I have met Toecutter.

A chap on facebook will be at the Oakdene on his Cub so at least 4 of us.
