Seven of us made it to lunch at the Tavern where the publican was quite insistent that we have roast beef for lunch. So we did, six of us!!
Our return journey via York and Talbot Rd West ( are you reading this JM) always enjoyed until Clive's ageing Suzuki decided to stop. Some roadside adjustments and a quiet ride home for Clive.
Refuelling at The Lakes provided a tale of caution for anyone (me) who has ideas of challenging our reigning fuel miser king. The king reigns supreme using 1 litre less fuel than the rest of us!! Any challengers to his title will need to exercise extreme discipline and throttle control. Guidelines for challengers . . . launch from red lights at the pace of a Mack truck towing a Double B fully loaded. Gear changes and revs never above 3600.
Great day out,Thanks to Chris for Tec duties.

You can try the "Mack truck" approach Wayne, but it's not what I do. The triumph 1050 triple is the secret for performance AND economy.
I've never seen someone's front brakes seize before today. It certainly gets your attention. Nice puff of blue smoke!
Still taking up the challenge tho, might have to enter wrist control boot camp.
Or enlist the support of Bruce on his GS and I hear those vvvtec 800 thingys are very economical. They look good in white too.
