Took three hours to do 107 miles to get home (rain, traffic, gales). I suspect we had a faster average speed on the Plain. Especially the last bit when Stan overtook me and I was doing more than 40mph through puddles.

Top day out. Thanks for organising it Stan. Great to meet everyone.

Thanks to all who helped pick up the Zebra :thumbup:

Super Day!! :blob::blob: Thanks a million all, really enjoyed it :thumbright:

I only took a few photos took as I was having too much fun in the mud and water :D here they are:













Looking forward to seeing the vid and pics from Wheelie :thumb:

Todd, that's a pity you had bike trouble, have you figured out the problem yet? Any idea when it'll be back on the road (off-road ;)) again?

Well, as I thought, my two photos weren't brilliant.






...but in that last one is one of those signposts I went hurtling past while taking an unplanned deviation...

Stan and guys - it was a pleasure to meet up & ride with you.
Sorry we were late in the morning, it was so cold that after 100 miles I have had to take a short break to avoid freezing my @ss off.
Fortunately the things got hotter on Salisbury Plain :D

My KTM has done 300 miles / 2 x tanks today.
Looking forward to see more pics and videos.

Had a great day, considering up until last night I wasnt sure if I would be going, so I didnt put my name down on the list.
Was up at 7 and decisions had to be made, yes make the trip but shall I take the XR and brave the boring trip or give my unloved bike the run it needed. I guessed the XR would be too slow on the windy mway so out came BMW.

I was a bit worried being on Tourances what I was letting myself in for but after watching Wheelie on TKCs I had no worries:D

The Bmw was faultless if a tad heavy and Ive realised its a great bike for a good days fun (still not as much fun as the XR). The ride home was a great headwind and sidewind battle ,but thats where the Beemer comes into its own, it dont move in wind:D:D

I forgot my camera and only took a couple on my phone

Cheers Guys a great day out, and top effort Stan.:thumbup:
Nice to meet all the New XRVers, great drop Martin:D







I think the unloved one has another stay of execution:rolleyes:
Mind after lookin today Orange is the way forward:happy3:

Hi stef no not figured out the problem, the only thing that i have not replaced is the Coil and leads so that is next on the list, its a serious pain as the only time that it goes wrong is when im going on a ride out, if just popping down the shops it's fine.

Anyway good pics certainly looked like you had fun!

Nice to put a few names to faces - here's what I took


















My Machine - 1979 - Honda XL250S - OLD!!! Like me!!

Note to Digital Captive - your seat can't be anywhere near as uncomfy as a nearly 30 year old seat - and look on the back - a spare fuel can! - seems I like my spare fuel can /jerry cans!





Video clip of Weymouth Chris & Phil W - ( Whealie - anytips how to post you tube clips properly like others do ????)

I used to have one of the early XL250's before I blew it up and wrecked the camshaft.
