We had a good turn out with about 20 member turning up. We got caught in one shower but we apeared to follow a heavy rainfull that was just in front of us. This make the roads very wet and the water was actualy running down the roads with mud and gravel everwhere. Peter guided us down some roads I can only describe as Green lanes. smileys/smiley36.gif" align="middle[/IMG] Not many photos but here is my few.

All in Blue, Boxhill
Then I ran out of batteries in the camera. Did just over 180 miles but enjoyed every one of them. I will take me a week to clean that bike now.
Next trip is the Isle of Wight run on Sunday 2nd September.
Was going to meet you guys at Bury Hill but the weather forcast said heavy rain. Sun was shining in East Grinstead so ventured a quick run to Box Hill, got there at 9.30 & by the time we got a coffie it started to rain, then it fookin pissed down BIBLICAL for the next hour, flooding, rivers running down the roads left about 11.00 rode home in the pissing rain, bike slaughtered in shit off the roads soaked to the skin, not happy

There was water running down the roads like a river but we missed the rain. It must of really pissed down, those roads were flooded and the mud and gravel on the road was terrible. Spent all morning washing the bike.

You just got to do it or never go out. I clocked up 182 miles on this run and it has taken a good 7 hours to clean and check the bike but its all worth it. I use this bike more than all the others, its the first RD I purchased and still my favorite or though its not my best bike. This one I will keep forever.
