I'm going up from Kent, but

a) I'll be going clockwise round the M25

b) You won't want to be going as early as I am

c) I have a call to make on the way

Weather forecast massively improved but I have other stuff to do too so will only be there until about 10.15. Will be good to see a few hornets there though.
May also pop back later in the day.
See you there!

Just wanna say a huge thanks to the 40 or so Hornets that turned up (and to Quo and Bod for not being on Hornets, but being there anyway)

Was good to catch up with some old faces, and to meet so many new ones.

Special thanks to financebloke, Beth, SamEasy and oh-so-slightly-cuddly-Will for making the day such a pleasure :D

I tried to get a word with everyone that turned up, but if I missed any of you out, my apologies.

Thanks Sam. I've ordered one. Really is the nicest looking screen I've seen for this model :thumbup Thanks for the offer, but I decided, as the bike is so new, to splash out on a brand new screen for it.
