Planned a ride out today (Saturday 20th) needed some new boots as my current pair are over 20 years old!

Started at Ely for a photo, Then onto Finchingfield , then to Cannons BMW for the boots, always wanted to revisit an old place of employment Stapleford Airfield where I worked as aircraft mechanic , refueler, dogsbody and barman all for £40 a week in the early 70's

Finally ended up at another Biker haunt of the past,  the original tea hut High Beech, met a few old biker mates there

From there straight back to North Cambs and home just missing some rain, 180 mile round trip, great to get out!

Photos in order

Went on a RoSPA social ride to Bridgnorth. 21 turned up at the meeting point so we went in 3 groups of 7 and adhered to the rules of social distancing at all times 👍

Had a great day out with the NM's. Met up at our HQ (Morrisons at Wetherby). Road together to Hovingham, Sleights & Thirsk which is where we split to head home.

Covered 200 miles, a good shakedown ride before the RT meet next weekend. Hopefully, this could be the start of a regular NM's ride out again.

Was in Stratford on Monday and saw this bike on the Waterside. I asked the chap if I could take a photo and he said I wasn't the first.

Led a group of three IAM bods on a 150 miles circular route around the Yorkshire Dales on my XJ650.
