Decided to go to Thurrock and join there. Arrived about 1230 after a petrol stop on the way.
Pepe does about 180 to the tank before I start to get nervous. So as it clipped up 115 on the odometer I decided to fill up to ensure I had enough to get to the start and join the ride. It is easily 60 miles home from here. Doing the maths convinced me to tank up.
Even in misty drizzly weather sitting in a large column of bikes is hot business, once the fan kicks in.
We were on the road and the M25 just before the allotted hour.
Well done to the marshals in the absence of the local police service.
The photographer, former SOC member and Kent Centre Sec, Roger Wood, for the run from Thurrock stood atop the van belonging to one of the charities we were supporting.
I had cable tied one of the Ride of Remembrance car-flags to the sissy bar but sadly I didn't get enough wind to fly whilst stopped.
