Sorry chaps but I had intentions on going, got to Lichfiels to collect the bike and at 07.30 I looked at the sat nav and it was 50 miles and 1 hour away and I would of arrived at 08.30 and there would of been no chance of getting a gutbuster breakfast plus I would of been waiting around for 2 hours, i was in the Transit and thought it would be hard to park so headed home via a Little Theif for the Olympic breakfast. Back home by 11am for a sleep on the sofa for an hour and then worked in the garage.
nice to meet you all,new and old faces but thought me fingers had frost bite on the way up :-[but sayin that i am another year older today so could be gettin to me now ;D and buzzard boy ;D ;)that was so close to you havin bird guts all over ya m8,quick reactions or what
Well things didn’t go exactly as to plan but in the end I got to the Raven cafe around 11.15 some people were all ready there like Scott / old rd user, and headcoats I was almost the last to turn up except Marsbar350 and his friend on his blade who arrived about 10 mins after me. Of course The Water boy Dawkins or Larry let down as he was know, didn’t turn up dissipate traveling up most of the way to pick up a air cooled bike. I was quite gutted that Arrow all so didn’t turn up as I was looking forward to meeting him and is was Arrow that put up the post about the Raven Cafe thing in the first place.
It was grate to meet with every one and quite a few of the LC Crazy Boys turned up. I couldn’t see were any one was when I pulled up so parked in front of the caff but every one else moved there bikes so they all stood together and it made a nice collection of bikes. Every one was very friendly and chatty just like it should be, and I for one had a good time.
These are the pics I took of the day
Every bit as lovely in the flesh as in the pics .
Fancy a mars bar I fancy this one.
I like the Green on Old rd users bike unusual and sparkly when the sun hit it .
Loved the sound of this one . I wish my bike sound as nice.
