Killington Lake (Southbound M6 in Cumbria) comes close !

Its 154 miles from home and my usual first stop (unless I'm on the BMW 1150 GSA with its 31 litre tank :lol: ).

There was the usual running repairs, this time a side car wheel needed some attention.

The grounds very soft here and of course I didn't bring anything for the side stand but at last, I've found a practical use for a hard hat

Just as we were heading of this morning an unfortunate VH refused to start. We tried all the normal tricks but nothing. So she joined me for the ride, Marjo's a great pillion rider, she needed to be especially when I rode too fast over one of those dreaded Drempel's. We were both momentarily airborne!

Cracking ride, we stopped off a local Dutch Ariel member who has a lovely collection of mainly Ariels.
