Thought Bakewell was better known for Tarts, meet any?  :007:

 :008: No tarts, it's a busy place, all campers/tourists. Fish n chips were vg, a kid's portion would have done me.
The roads we used were more suited to a super-moto than a Tiger, ridden them all on me Serow so knew what was coming. Good bunch of people, my first time out with them, real good laugh. First time in years since I've been on a group ride.

Don't do what I did.
In a petrol station, taller than normal bag strapped to the seat so stood on the peg.
It must have been diesel that caused my foot to slip of the peg which left me laying across the seat, on my belly.
Woman in the car behind laughing so hard she's about to have a heart attack :745:
Exactly what I always feared doing  :156: with that little peg, and in the same place!

Which is why I replaced with the SW-Motech item, wider rubber platform, harder for your foot to slip off. These days, don't want to land on that (expanding) stomach.

Aye Mike, that cattle grid is a bad'n, I knew it, so I was up on the pegs ready, the boy in front of me got thrown out the saddle.
The narrow single-track lane down to Wetton mill caff is tricky with grass & gravel in middle.

Dunno how the voiceover works, must be in the software for a laugh, he doesn't talk like that.

Nice videos Paul, thanks for sharing  :028:
Great scenery - i see he had to watch out for the horse poo in the road & looks like he went over the cattle grid a bit quick.. :001:
was a bit strange with the overdubbed American/Canadian voiceover  :187:

I see nowhere in the MOT regs where the MIL is even mentioned.  Cars, yes but not for bikes.

Does the exhaust smell of fuel after cranking?

1) I failed to spot that MP was/is a 'foreign resident'... and 2) I'm flexible, I will go any time, once we are 'allowed'..

I was thinking about the Offa's Dyke one, but that's off too now?

The Offa's rally was planned for 16th - 18th July so falls inside the lockdown extension.  :172:

Meriden rally is 1st w/e in August, if not cancelled.
