Thought I'd start one with pictures of where you've been or what you've upgraded

Visiting wife's family but I snuck out to get fuel, the long way. In the 30 years I travelled to work across or around this bit of water I have seen Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth, QE2, SS France, United States, Canberra, a super tanker laid up when Thatcher killed everything, a US carrier docked at various times, power boat & tall ship race starts & even a rebuilt Sunderland flying boat taxi down the Solent. But I have never seen the dock so busy!

Sunday 21st May, good 140 mile ride (my bikes hidden in there somewhere)

A guy on here (forget his username) came out from the Essex ride out post on his converted gen 1 RSV to Tuono - thats full of carbon! I'll let him add what happened at the very end should he decide to comment...

Great ride though, nice pace, nice breakfast and everyone home safe as it should be

First proper ride out on the new bike around Norfolk B roads with Markymark67 on his sweet touno, my mate on his R6 and another nice fella on a lovely 1098s with full titanium akras. The sound was awesome the R6 has a full system too but amongst three twins you could barely hear it [IMG]http://[/IMG]
I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left

Mate it was amazing felt so good to be back out again and even better in a little noisy pack. Now I'm happy the new uns working well it's time to revive the EA meet up I'll get it sorted. Hopefully you can make it Rick if the bones allow it.

Thoroughly enjoyed the ride out , you could really hear the sound reverberate off the houses of that small village where we stopped for a bevvy, great evening, good company, looking forward to the next one.

Having a tidy up of my old old old pc and YouTube account and found this old beauty from 2005

There is so much tackiness with old Windows video maker intro, horrendous music overlay and VHS recording converted to digital for the PC

Its quite amazing how technology has come in only 12-13 years really. I only wish I had more videos and pictures of my old bikes. Only ones I do were on photos that I had to scan into the PC for a digi copy

Some of you may know the pub as its an Essex local

Good skills

Did you actually have any tyre left to get you home?

I do know the pub I'm from Pitsea, my mum and dad used to take us there when we were nippers in the late 80s before we moved up to Norfolk serious blast from the past.

It's still going strong that biker pub

As for the tyre... No idea, it was a long time ago. Knowing how I was back then it was probably boarder line which made me stop
