    I bet you don't live anywhere near me then. Still cold, damp and miserable. I'm still riding to work but that's my limit at the moment as it's grim up north. :(

    ......... and the roads are covered in salt - great - but it really does get everywhere on an engine block, and I don't fancy all that cleaning (fairings off etc), so will wait for some rain to wash it away and then some sun!

    I admire your enthusiasm but I have to agree with JDB don't fancy all that cleaning,
    keeping the car clean is bad enough, so I shall be patient a little while longer :cool:

    4 hours later, all the salt is gone, everything is lubed up and squeaky clean. She looks in show-room condition again, for another 5 minutes anyway

    and it was great to see so many out on the A166 to a regular meet
    at Fridaythorpe, but not for me I'm afraid stuck in the car on the
    way to sunny Scarborough,it got me thinking not long now before

    Would that be Sea Breeze cafe at Fridaythorpe? Is Tuesday a big day there? I've only been on a Saturday and last time I went it looked like it was slowly turning into a proper biker's cafe.

    I've been to Knaresborough today and got wet. Tomorrow I'm off to Teesside to get wet again. A longer run so I must take some spare gloves :) If I get away early enough I'll have some fun by not using the A19 and going Northallerton, Masham, Beadale and Ripon. A fun ride even if it will be raining and I'll be getting 40p per mile :)

    Hi Stu,
    Its called the Seaways Cafe and certainly gets a good turnout in summer.
    There are some good roads as well and some bad ones much to the sad
    demises of our biking friends ,there is a separate part called the Bike Shed
    but when I drove past on Tuesday the sign had been painted out so not
    sure whether its just that bit thats been closed and from the the dozen
    or so bikes that were parked up I still think its a favorite meet.
    Maybe the best would be the Milkbar at Sherburn-in-Helmet but
    there are always plod around checking speed and illegal cans
    No doubt you have been many times :?:
     
  13. Hey, i'm from the very north east of Scotland (near fraserburgh, if anyone can be arsed googleing it)
    The roads yesterday were dry!!!!!! for the first time..... this year?
    maybe
    went into aberdeen and back, round trip of like 80 miles, brilliant....
    had forgotten how good the bike was after having a foot of snow everywhere for a couple of weeks, and wet and icy roads for the past 3-4 months, lol,

    I was close on the name so I know where you talk of. We occasionally pitched up there when I did my IAM training. Now being less that 20 miles from the famous Milkbar, I do get there quite regularly. Only once been pulled and I did nothing wrong, just a spot check but a bike copper did follow my missus into the car park to discuss with her the over take on a solid white line. :)

    or that is until the twirps in Brussels got their way,the nearest I have any connections
    with Scotland is Kircaldy North East of Dunfirmline, I have relatives live there but never
    been. Glad to hear you are out and about after the crap weather, I bet you cant wait to
    get on the 675,maybe soon :)

    I used to live a little further north in Haroldswick. It's about 14hrs passed Aberdeen. I once spent some time in Peterhead :( but there wasn't much to do there.

    Do you ever venture south of the border Ali?
