And so it came to pass, that Ian was due to sort out a Sunday Run. This meant heading ONCE again southwards. Does no one appreciate the roads we have towards the NW such as Oban etc, Very selfish.
We met at Burnhouse X Roads, with Kenny Hair surprising us with his presence (family, friends & promoting his June Run). Also refreshing to see Sam with his new very nice silver-grey Triumph with Liz on board.Hayes Garden Centre for Breaky.
We headed on thru the wondrous & confusion of North Ayrshire roads and after freezing about for ages, stopped a short while at Abington Service Stn & then headed on fab roads via Leadhills and Wanlochead & Thornhill for lunch at Moniaive.
This was excellent although slightly marred by JG and Cathie (Drew’s) having considerable indecision regarding which cake/s to choose. This went on FOREVER!
Finally, Cathie chose a rhubarb fancy and stated that she wasn’t worried as she had a potty in her mini, which has seen plenty of action.
Before we set off, you’ll notice a group foto with Les giving JG a £20 note. This is important to note as a certain present Member, insisted that Les owed him the £20, when Les had mislaid his dosh. Not so, it was JG that did the decent thing.
Now this anonymous Member with a white beard and BMW scooter- Mod like ye ken, has a history of misrepresenting himself. At this rate we’ll have to reduce him to the Membership of the BMW Club who can only stay at posh places such as The Rob Roy when we have to slum it at the likes of North West Castle and Peebles Hydro.
Johnny has promised to remind him (don’t give him your name Pike), that this sort of thing is frowned upon.
At Carsphairn (great roads to it) we continued North & split up at Dalmellington
Freezing ya Bass, that was the only thing that marred the day. Great friends (minus one with the beard) and a great laff.
Thanks, Ian. By the way, beware Ian on his S1000RRRR, due in June. Dark clouds gathering. There will be 230 good reasons for keeping out of his way.
