Just a small job back at Griffin this morning.
Now I'm packed ready for the Crazy Horse.

Cheers Gary.
Nearly had a dry ride around the Forest of Dean, till the heavens opened up on the way back to the aptly named fountain inn :D

Great Crazy Horse rally, thanks Peter
This is Charlie who we met at the Severn bridge services, I asked, have you a bike? Yes one or seven he said :D
He gave me a good tip. He uses those magic marker pens that wipes off easily to write lists of route directions onto his bike screen.

Authentic camoflage pattern on the pipe and silencer, Tiger Tank would never spot that bike in a hedge.

On any other bike it would look a mess, :D

Here's a lovely old garage in the Savernake Forest just south of Marlbourgh.

Is this place still dispensing fuel, cant remember the last time I saw 'REGENT' on a pump, Just like National Benzol I haven't seen that for a long time.

Apparently Regent was owned by Texaco. Texaco stopped using the Regent name in 1967.
