RALLY JUNE 2011
Denis & I attended the rally this year which was
held nr Sancere the centre of the Sancere wine producing area. We
were the only Brits to make the journey meeting 3 from Galway -
Ireland who had traveled over to France a few days before to attend
the rally.The country side was picturesque with minimal traffic on
the roads as it was a bank holiday weekend. Unfortunately Denis's
Connie broke down on the sunday whilst returning from a ride out (
suspect Mag problem ).He returned to Zeebrugge by hire car - now
awaiting his bike to be returned to th UK.Both had a good time - a
winning combination of good company,food,wine & weather . Keith
Nick , Denis & Keith made the round trip of
about 500 miles to the rally .Weather was excellant and the venue
was very good.A lot of work had gone into the organisation with live
entertainment on friday & saturday nights with a selection of
local beers @ £1.50 a pint ( Nick & Denis said they were very
good as you know I don't drink ! ) with bacon , sausage , egg &
mushroom breakast buns provided on saturday & sunday mornings
with tea/coffeee on tap.There were numerous ride outs mapped out to
local attractions which you could do in your own time if you so
Even had time to do a spot of fishing with Nick (
It was a close match - I am sure Nick will be more than pleased to
let you know the final tally - suffice to say the saturday night BBQ
did not rely on my catch to feed the five thousand ! ).
All managed to return under their own steam with
only a few hitches to Nicks & Keiths bikes ( Denis I am sure was
relieved after breaking down on the France Rally only a few weeks
All in all a great weekend .
As we were leaving Graham Scarth floated the idea
of arranging a International Rally in Yorkshire for 2013.Nice idea
was my reply but I would like to see us get a Branch Rally under our
belts before going in at the deep end !. Food for thought - maybe we
can enlist the support of our West Yorkshire members ?

Moors Run 5th October 2011
It didn't look at all promising that morning but 5
of us turned up for what turned out to be a very enjoyable, if
a little windy run up to the Lion (well actually it blew like
After the usual stop at Fimber for tea and
cake we did a detour through Thixendale to Malton then another
detour through Kirby Misperton to Pickering.
From there it was
through Wrelton to Rosedale Abbey then round the top of
Rosedale to the Lion.
It was seriously windy on the top, enough
to put the 350 into 3rd on a flat road!
After refreshments we
turned off down to Farndale then back round to Kirby Moorside,
Malton and back.
