Not Long To Go!

Not long to go now before the next trip, 7 days and counting!

We set sail next Thursday, I sincerely hope that the storms that are currently battering us today have passed over by then!

Best wishes to everyone from Plymouth HoG Chapter who are off to Portugal on Sunday, I hope the Bay of Biscay is kind to you, have a great time at the European rally. See you on the Independence Day Ride Out.

Before the service and the awful weather set in, Harley and I have been out getting some miles under the rubber around Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. A nice part of the country to ride a motorbike…before all the summer visitors arrive!

This is Dartmoor on a sunny day.

Another trip took us to Slapton Sands, site of the infamous D-Day rehearsal cock up in 1944. A few years ago one of the American Sherman tanks that sank off the beach was salvaged and now forms a memorial to the troops that died. Compare it to the sister tank at Saumur, very moving.
