We’ll be at the ACE café on Saturday 10th for the KillSpills ride, & if we not diving on the Sunday we’ll just have to find our way down to Brighton nice & early to get somewhere to park. On bank holiday Monday you couldn’t park a unicycle let alone a motorcycle at Brighton.

What's wrong with an Ordnance Survey map, and what happened to mapreading skills?

And to think of the times I haver taken people up there for nothing!!! Seriously though it is people like these "guides" who are trying to cash on on things like this that spoil things for everyone!!! Many parts of these Roman Roads etc are having TROs placed on them - a little unfair on us locals when the probs are caused by gangs of people turning up en masse!!!

Another moan while I am at it - 2 strokes!!! If bikers were to avoid these in the countryside it would solve a lot of problems - most farmers these days use quad bikes and they just purr along - 2 strokes are NOT in keeping with places like the Brecon Beacons!!!

And yes my outboard IS a 2 stroke - but it certainly does NOT sound like the crazy frog!!!!
