Ride-out 1st January 2015 - Only the Lonely

Postby Derek-Dex-French » 13 Jan 2015, 14:13

I went on a ride-out on 1st January 2015 to check the route for the Surrey Hairpins run-out the next day.
I don’t know whether it was down to hangovers, or being overcast, or being cold, or being windy or being rainy, but I found I was the only motorcyclist at Newlands Corner (near Guildford, UK) when I arrived there for a cup of tea.
Strange that…..
