Great clear Autumn weather last Sunday for perhaps the last clement run of the season. The start was the Fighting Cocks in Godshill in the New Forest for an amble through the National Park's narrow and scenic roads. A turnout of something like thirty bikes; myself I brought among my BMW R100RS, as unsuitable bike as could be for the terrain. I finished the day with sore wrists and back. The plan had been to take the Enfield J2 but a petrol tank leak put paid to that plan.
|The Fighting Cocks is also a popular|
gathering point for the free-roaming
Donkeys of the Forest. An appealing
expression brings easy pickings from
the plates of the pub's clientele.
|This is the Vincent Owners' Club's HRD Meteor|
available as a loan bike to members. It is parked
afront a Lotus Anglia that was coincidentally
sharing the car park.

Colombres Rally in Spain.
