Breakfast run 24th August 2014

I am relying on feedback from Ray and Keith as I was not on this run due to a family reunion. I understand that 12 riders turned up in the square at Hatherleigh for this breakfast run, 5 riders from Tiverton only just making it in time as Keith's Triumph decided on the way that his trousers were a bit dirty so it began to wash them with petrol!, apparently a hole in the downpipe was the culprit and this was soon fixed up. The run set off for Torrington where Ray had arranged a breakfast meal at the Torrington arms, this was seemingly very enjoyable and with full stomachs the run set off for Winkleigh via a choice of routes!!, due to some riders missing an unmarked turn and then losing the new leader, never mind, almost all safely arrived at Winkleigh and the missing rider was located at home. The weather turned out to be very much better than expected and the whole run was accomplished in the dry and all riders were home by mid afternoon. This was the first time we have put on a breakfast run for some time and we would like to know what you think to repeating it. Apparently a Badger accompanied the run but not quite sure how this came about, something to do with Dermot's Matchless?. Next run folks is the Fall run 14th September starting from the Blackberries in Bampton usual time of 1030 for 1100 start.
