The start at South Molton.

Near the lunch stop.

Roger had mag troubles on the way home.

Gordon felt unwell after coffee and was sick into his helmet

Clive replacing throttle cable

This run was very well attended with 34 bikes lining up for the start at the Corn Dolly in South Molton. The Cornish contingent arrived just in time for the off after an enforced stop at Roundswell to replace a broken throttle cable on Clive's Triumph Tiger 750.
Organised by John Denny, the well planned route took us through places that other routes cannot reach. From South Molton to Black Cat and Exebridge then through the lanes to Shillingford. On to Wiveliscombe then north to Watchet and on to the lunch stop in Blue Anchor.
After lunch we had an enjoyable ride to the finish at Black Cat. The route took us through Dunster and Weddon Cross, then, at Merve's request, to Winsford in order to go though the ford.
No breakdowns occured on the run but Cyril had some trouble starting his Matchless.
I must give praise to the lads from Cornwall. Those from Bodmin and Wadebridge covered 250 miles but Clive from Troon clocked up 290 miles in all. Added to this they had to make repeated stops when Roger's mag end cap kept coming loose.

Our thanks goes to John D for organising a great days riding.
