    Llanbister? On the Newtown to Crossgates road? Is this a loaded question?

    Bit too far to nip out there for a coffee (if I'm walking into a clever trap)

    Dare I say then if you ride to Matlock bath and your wearing a Hi Viz vest or coat with POLITE on the back some of the members would not be happy

    I still like visiting Matlock....the usual plan is up to CMC bikes at Clay Cross for a look at the stock and a cuppa at the cafe, then from there via the B614 past Ogston Reservoir...into Matlock for a stroll around, and a portion of fish,chips & mushy peas

    Courage isn't having the strength to go on - it is going on when you don't have strength.

    Pickering in Yorkshire charges for motorcycles to park in the square. You still get plenty going there ( I think it is Pickering - it is on that road anyway!)

    Personally, I don't think a couple of bob is too much of a hardship to park in the prime position on the roadside. How would people feel if the Council came up with the idea of free motorcycle parking in the furthest away carpark, but no motorcycle parking on the high street, or pay and display on the high street??

    There is a 20 ft wide footpath aside the river with railing to chain yer bike too. That "could if they wanted too" fit 100 bikes. That could release more space for the chuds to park their cars etc. Most of the folks wanting change probably never use the bath - or the chippys or the cafes. Its a tadge scruffy at mo and always in the shade, just my opinion of course

    Many years ago went to Helmsley ... parked our bikes in a 'V' between the car parking bays ... Traffic Warden said, in no mistaken terms "Move 'Em" they really really weren't taking any useable space up, or in a pedestrians way. "OK" I said "We'll put the two bikes in a car space and get a ticket for them, as for a car"

    "And you'll get a ticket for that" came the reply ....

    .... soooo we went up to the Lion Hotel on Blakey Ridge for our lunch, and I've never been back to Helmsley since

    Matlock Bath, Devils Bridge, Sherbern in Elmet .... I avoid like the plague

    Nice to know Matlock Bath is still alive and well. I used to ride up there in the 60s on Sundays. In fact I was having a dice with a Rocket Gold Star, got passed him, and then Mr Plod overtook us both and I got a £10 speeding ticket, a lot of money in them days. I was well impressed with Mr Plods riding. Mind you I was 2 up... Wasn't you was it Micky?

    The first time I went to Matlock would be in 1963 on the D7 BSA Bantam ... then I met Plod too (elsewhere) and got banned

    Didn't have a Rocket Goldie until later on in to the 70's

    Sooo nooo it wasn't me that gotya
