Yes, Yes, Yes....Actually got there....Yahoo

Today seemed a long time in arriving seen as this trip had been planned for 2 weeks ago but had to be cancelled due to the Wet weather.

Any way, a dry start to the day I got the Gt out of the garage, went up stairs to get my Leathers on & YES it started to Bloody Rain, so I rushed downstairs pushed the GT back in to the Garage wiped the seat off went back inside gave it 5 mins then got changed & put on the New Waterproofs (nowt was gonna stop me today).

I set off at 8.25am in ther rain, then after about 35 mins I escaped the Rain Clouds & the sky got a little brighter but there was still a bad cross wind across the A1.
I had the odd bit of rain further on but nothing to get excited about, 2 hrs in & I had made good time so I stopped at Baldock Services for a brew & take off the wet weather gear, while I was here I spotted an Old Royal Enfield & was having a chat with the owner who told be it made in 1937 (some old machine).

I continued down on to The Ace Cafe, parked up, had a good wander around the Car's and then the bike's taking quite a few photo's.
Below is a sample of photo's I took today but you can also view all of them at my Facebook page if you are one of my friends, if your not a friend send a friend request.

After having sometining to eat (well it would be Rude not too) & a chat to a few people I started my journey back home going up the M1 it started to rain so I pulled off on to the HArd Shoulder& under a bridge got the Wet Weather Gear out again, I needed it on as it was as they say Raining Cat's & Dog's.

Up around Leicester up to Newark On Trent & stop for a cuppa before getting home.
A great day with a few miles under the belt, What more can I say What lie's in wait for my next trip ? !!!!!!
