*shakes bag, picks out random excuse*

I'm rationing mileage on the SMT now to avoid overshooting the next service point before I go to Istanbul.

Anyone fancy a regular Sunday morning run around West Sussex area starting at about 7.30am when the roads are nice and quiet? I'm coming from Chichester so anywhere in the area would be fine by me.

7.30am? On a Sunday? I had no idea such a thing even existed.

No time for a regular meet, anyway. Too many other roads, tracks and entire countries worth riding to tie myself to one place. Happy to pop along at some point though, time permitting.

Ogden, you don't know what you're missing. Early morning rides on this very crowded little island are the way to go. Clear roads, lots of beautiful corners, crisp morning air and fantastic scenery, now that's a good reason get up early.

On a ferry approaching Dover ATM, unlikely to be doing anything tomorrow.

No, it's a reason to go across the channel. Riding in the south east is rubbish.

Fair enough. I'd rather be riding on the continent. We're off to Switzerland for two weeks at the end of August so that's something to look forward to but in the meantime it's making the best of what's available.

I might pop down that way tomorrow morning. Need to rack up some miles before the bike goes in for its 14k service on Wednesday.

Need to be home by 2pm though, so as not to miss the Superbike TT.

Can do. 9.30 at my place, with a full tank? That should get us to Loomies by 12.
