Perhaps we should leave it a few weeks!

JULY 2012 - Keith Cousins
Attended the Welsh Rally with Denis then caught the ferry from Holyhead - Dublin to stay with friends in Galway.
Weather was kind with only one day of continuous rain.Covered approx 1175 miles ( 384 miles on the last day Galway - home ).
22nd May - Denis & I Travelled Hull - Zeebrugge on P&O North Sea Ferries ( 1800 - 0900 )
23rd - Rode down to the outskirts of Paris to stay a few nights with Marylenre Martin the secretary of the French REOC .
25th - Rode down to Dijon for the rally.
26th - Visited the circuit de Dijon-Prenois for the COUPES MOTO LEGEND ( see photo of Jim Redman singing autographs ).
27th - Picknic ride out visiting local attractions.
28th - Rode to Lemans staying overnight before arriving in Brittany on the 29th staying four days @ run by Roger & Linda Nicholls who organise eating nights & led ride outs across Brittany.As the location is only 80 miles from the ferry port of St Malo it is ideally placed for touring Brittany.
30th - 1st June - Organised ride outs led by Roger.
2nd June - Rode to St Malo and caught the day crossing to Portsmouth ( 1000 - 1830 ) - staying overnight with friends @ Hailsham.
3rd - Returned home( soggy ).
Distance travelled - 1650 miles.
Weather was wall to wall sunshine ( except for the return leg of the journey from London when it rained all the way home - hello England ! ).
Denis had a small exploding electrical problem but fortunately this occured at Dijon so replacement parts were sourced at the Coupes Moto Legend & repairs succesfully completed ( a few photos show the remnants of the exploding Magnet & stator ).
Overall an enjoyable trip - Looking to do Wales & Eire in July!
  Lincs. Aviation Run 30th April 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 wished.
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 earlier ).
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 ?
Run Out to the Harry Bacon Collection July 21st 2011

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 nobody's buisness!!)
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.
