Me & 5 mates all met up at North Oxford BMW Friday morning & headed off down the A40 to the campsite we stayed at last Easter in LLandyfan, Wales.
We had one corner of the site with 3 small lodges/pods a large hot tub and our own shower & loo.
Saturday morning we set off over the Black mountain pass to the West End Cafe in Llandovery for a nice breakfast (or so we thought),
the cafe was fairly quiet with only a couple of bikes outside & several cars..... we all ordered & sat outside in the courtyard, 1st thing that came out was a sausage & bacon sandwich ..with no sausage & mouldy bread
that went back for a replacement, 2nd thing was scrambled egg on toast also with mouldy bread.. WTF!!
this was replaced but we only got a half _a
d apology from the owner. rest of the food was ok but nowhere as good as last year
Set off for New Quay along the A482 - what a great road, loads of corners & twisties. was cool & overcast a fair bit of the way but the sun came out just as we got to New Quay
beach both sides of the harbour was busy.
we all had an icecream
& watched the world go by for an hour or so then headed back to our campsite via the Black mountain pass again, i made a wrong turn near llandovery,
so once i discovered the others were not behind me i did a U-turn & hooned off to catch them at one of the carparks at the top of the mountain.
My Tiger almost flew around some of the corners.. good Job theres no speed cameras
but i am really pleased with how well it powered up to the top.
while we were in the carpark this came in, a Steve McQueen Bonnie T100 - a Triumph factory custom apparently..
Sunday Morning we packed up & headed off over the Black mountain pass again for breakfast at a different place.
as we were going over the top my mate who was leading on his Fireblade was almost taken out by a kamikaze sheep
which decided to jump out in the road in front of him (and me who was just behind him) at the last second, luckily we both managed to avoid it but it was heart in the mouth moment
We rocked up at the Owls Nest which is only 1/2 a mile from the west end cafe & realised where all the bikers were - a good 60 or so bikes and a long queue for breakfast.
Food was 100 times better, Big breakfast with a mug of tea or coffee for 9 quid, i highly recommend it
some of the Bikes outside..
This Tiger belong to anyone on here? was with some other triumphs, all had TOMCC stickers.
You can see the queue waiting to order.. also they had a Suspension tune up tent, several of the sports bikes were getting their rear shocks adjusted
All in all a brilliant weekend for riding
Oh and Beer
