Tan Hill Inn Meet.... missed everyone!

Postby farmerboy » Sun Aug 07, 2016 6:07 pm

Last minute decision to go to the meet and I must have arrived after everyone had left! Boy was it windy! There were a couple of nice new RT's there but I was obviously a bit too late to meet anyone. Apart from the wind it was a lovely ride and lots of bikes about - really nice countryside around there - just a pity the sun refused to shine north of Preston.

Never mind, I shall try again next time.

ps - just wondering if sharing phone numbers might be an idea so that contact can be made on the day?

Only 3 of us made it today Alan, Glenn and Nick. We arrived about 11.45 but the service was unwelcoming so we stayed for a quick drink and then moved on to Reeth to find a cafe. I agree It was very windy. Phone numbers could be a good idea.

I made it though a little late. Very windy. There were a few BM modern twins there but no one I recognised.

I was on my way back (in the car) from Aberdeen.
Didn't get back to Darlington until 5:00 pm

hmmm... I spoke to the guys on the newish BMW bikes so I must have missed you by a whisper as well! Really need to get better organised.. :)

I managed to get a bit of video using the GoPro chest strap - its not too good! I have slowed the video down so you can see the scenery..... ;)

Hmmm..... seems ok for me... I have just tried it from the link and all is well. Maybe if someone else can try? Having said that - it is not very exciting!
