The next time I went was in 2009 and this time I was on my own bike Macbeth Bobber, a hardtail Panhead, a great trip despite a fuel tank range of only 60 miles which meant I stopped at every service station on the way down - but the weather was great and the Warrs boys were all there and we had a top time. I am not sure who took this picture below of me - but I found it on Flickr.
In 2010 we rode down in a group with Chelsea & Fulham HOG - it rained the whole way for 3 days and was cold when we were there and rained all the way back - I was just glad to be on my Streetglide. For a bit of a pose I had the Hamlet Tracker shipped down - but as the old Harley saying goes, "Its the journey not the destination".
I missed last year, but I am now getting quite excited about going next week on May 8th. I am going with three friends and will be taking my Caesar Racer, and sharing the riding with my mate Preben on the Streetglide - which will be laden up with our luggage. This year we are going a different route, via Paris, Bourges, then down to the coast at Montpellier and along past Marseilles. Here are the three of them on our run to Devon last year.
We are meeting our mate Gary France down there who will be on his new super custom, which I am very excited to see - so next post will be a France update.....or if you cant wait follow me on Twitter @iansolley
