Run to Haynes Motor Museum

Six riders who were foolish enough to believe the weather forcasters when they said that Sunday would be " dry with the slight chance of a shower" met at J27 on Sunday Sept. 25th at 9.30am.
The plan was to meet with some members from the Somerset section for a trip to The Haynes Motor Museum at Sparkford. 
One of the Somerset boys had bike trouble on the way so it was arranged to meet them at the destination.
We set off in good spirits because Ray had told us that the present rain was a "clearing-up" shower. Then we made our way through persistant rain over the Blackdown Hills to Sparkford.
Arriving in the car park, in rain that was now nearly horizontal in the strong wind, we were met by one member from Somerset. The others, about ten in all came in shortly after.

There are a geat many interesting and exotic cars and bikes on display in the museum all in beautiful
condition. I would like to have stayed longer but with my feet squelching about in my boots and a hundred mile ride home we left after about two hours.
The ride home was achieved in the dry but with a strong wind blowing in our faces.
Thanks to Ray for guiding us which he is good at, but don't listen to his weather predictions, which he is rubbish at!
