Not much to report on the ride. No GPS, just map and directions on tank, with quick check of signposts as we passed causing change in speed for the group. Interesting to note the battleship grey colour of one of the wind turbines near Ashill; personally I like them but then I don’t live close to one. Despite some assertive riding Mr & Mrs Smith by me at road junctions and joining flow of traffic, the rest of the group kept me in sight and we safely arrived at the Legends. I was surprised to see the number of bikes already parked there with riders and pillions already sitting down waiting for their food. It appears that by the time of my late arrival in Ipswich, the first groups had already left.
Chatting with Tim Spencer as we finished Mr & Mrs Hale our breakfast, we were joined by Felix. Yes, he was the stalker in the bushes taking pictures of us as we passed along road near Diss. Casual query about the photographs – Mistake 2 – “How would I like to write a short note on and about the run?”. As if there was any other answer but “Yes”, especially as his enforcer, Ray was lurking in case I gave the wrong response. Hence this article. To conclude, a pleasant ride and back home I time
to attack the weeds in the allotment.
