Garmin Ride Out Sat 4-8-2012

We have had this little ride out planned a few weeks now after we managed to register on line for the Garmin Ride Out in Aylesbury, we managed to get 2 of 250 places, Lucky or what, also Charlie Boorman was coming down also, one of the riders from 'Long Way Round & Down' which he did with Ewen Mcgregor.

Anyway, I set out at 5.25am & rode down to Tamworth to meet up with Phil then off down the M42 a few junction's then stop off for some Brekki & a Brew.

Bellie's fueld up we got back on the M42 & down to the M40 heading South for Bicester for Petrol then on to the Garmin venue at Ducati at Aylesbury.

We arrived there early, had a good wonder around, got the Free Burger and drink LOL, I purchased a Givi top box (ex Display) it needs spraying GT Blue now.

We then met up with Charlie Boorman, had a good chat with him & took some photo's before heading back home, a good day's riding apart from the rain on the way back home.

Below are a sample of pic's I took today but you can see more on my Facebook page .
