12 riders met at the Anchor in Exebridge and put the world to rights whilst sitting on 3 tables set on the back lawn. There was the usual good humoured banter concentrating on such diverse subjects as Steve's washing up problems, riding on the wrong side of the road, Rays jokes and the usual bike problems. It was interesting to note that the largest number of bikes arriving were Hondas, in fact 550 fours, this is usually Triumphs of late. Whilst 11 riders were correctly dressed in motorcycle gear, John D turned up in shorts!, OK he was riding his push bike!, this prompted Ray to enquire whether he had a license to display knees!. We seven riders from Tiverton had a lovely run to the pub but Chris said that the run from Bideford to Barnstaple was through a sea mist and this may have put off others from coming. The move was made to head for home around 9pm and I must say for us that it was a most enjoyable run back, don't forget the fish and chips evening on Weds August 7th at the Welcome Fryer in South Molton, oh and keep an eye on this blog, I will always try to remind you all of events ahead as there was some discussion that even with Chris' announcements in the mag, Micks announcement at the club nights and the Devon section events calendar, some people are still saying they don't know what is on!.

What do the initials AMAC or AMAL stand for?, or how do you stand on the solar system?, these are a few of the questions Ray posed to the 11 members who turned out on a fine riding evening for the July club night. We were split into 3 teams to answer as best we could, it seems Chairman Mick and his team had spent the most time swanning about on the sofa reading knowledgeable books and magazines as they scored the most points!. The assembled members then individually had a go at a highway code quiz to find out who's name was going to appear on the shield this year, I wasn't allowed to take part as Ray had called me down to get his printer fired up and saw the first sheets of questions and answers pop out!!. Once again it was Mick who fought it out with Mike on a tie break and won, ( well he is a retired policeman so he should shouldn't he! ). There was still plenty of light when we all pulled out of the Town Arms car park and headed for home, I must say I really enjoyed the run out and home, 5 of us went down the old A361 , John peeling off to Brushford and Fred to the Black cat, very pleasant. Don't forget there is a run out on Monday evening, meet at the Anchor at Exebridge around 7pm, come on any bike, have a chat over a drink, the weather is going to be fine!, see you there.
