Had a 'ACE DAY' OUT yesterday, a treat for my birthday which is now today.
Ashley & me set out from home at 6.48am & headed down the M18/A1 on route to Brampton Hut A1/A14 interchange where we were to meet up with John Lewis and my mate Phil. Ashley & me arrived at about 8.25am (106 miles not bad going) once inside Mcdonalds & hands round a hot cuppa tea to bring the fingers back life (Yes it was a very cool ride down).
Phil & then John turned up, we had a good old natter & a few more beverages, took a few photos then Ashley, me & Phil headed for the Ace Cafe London, John was off over to Cambridge to see some friends of his.
After getting petrol in Stevenage at a Tesco ( bit of a Joke there it was )we soon got down to the A406 North Circular and Bingo within 10 Min's we arrived at our destination The Ace Cafe.
This place has got alot of history behind it dating back to the 1930's Rockers & Mods etc.
We spent 2 hours here having a drink & a bite to eat, take some photo's & buy some bits & bobs (it would be Rude not too you know ).
Back on the A406 & Hell was it busy back to the M1, once back on the Motorway & heading North we came off at J 9 and rode the A5 up through Dunstable, Milton Keynes & up to Towcester were we stopped at the Harley D dealer for a look around then grabbed some fuel and another cuppa before continuing back up the A5 to J 20 M1 via Crick.
Very windy on the way back but made good progress and arrived back home approx 18.53hrs, covered 348 miles in total, the bike will soon be due its 6000 mile service..

  1. 348 miles is a good day riding, it must be starting to get a bit cooler there now. Do you ride through the winter?
