So, to the ACE CAFE we went...

So the Triumph test drive has been put back until the 23-5-11 at 13.00hrs.
So not to be Rude, Gareth(my eldest) & me was Wooosh off to that there London for a little trip.
I left my humble abode @ 6.50am up to the local Supermarket for fuel then pick Gareth up & off we went.
1st stop was down the A1 at Grantham for a Mcadees Breakfast, 45 Min's later we was tramming down the A1 non stop to Brent Cross off the A406 North Circular in London & stopped for fuel.
On the way to the Ace Cafe we went to get a closer look at Wembley Stadium (photos Below). After getting stuck in some traffic at Wembley he then headed off for another 2 mile to the Ace Cafe.
Upon arrival, took a few photos and had a chat with some one then inside for a cuppa, had a good look around then ordered a something to eat & another cuppa.
We we're just about to leave when a few Harleys rolled in, so we had a chat with a bloke and took some snaps of his bike.
Time was cracking on so we departed the Cafe @ 13.05hrs heading back North & stopping off at a services on the A46 for a cuppa, 2hrs riding sends ur Ass Numb.
Bish Bosh and off again & back to Doncaster, dropped Gareth off at home then back to my house it was. Got back at 17.20hrs, I'll let you work out the Maths on this one.
We we're very lucky with the weather, had a few spitting drops of the wet stuff on the return journey but not enough to get you wet, yet again we had Wind(from the weather & no where else)but good God it was a bit chilly, thought it was Mid Novemeber here. Total miles today was 348.2 Yahoo......
