    Just dropping in to say how impressive the (approx.) 15 CR police outriders looked in coverage of NM's cortege today. White with some flash colours and full luggage set up. See them on the news tonight.
    Happy xmas to all.

    Still got the Z1000sx Jon but, as usual, eyes keep wandering. Still daren't take a Caponard for a test ride (am sure I would like it too much), local dealer has demo with only 300 on the clock for £9.4K.
    Like the new Vstrom 1000 as well. Me and Dave Newell trying to sort out a trip for next year..what u n Gary doing?? Saw Ali on a Z750 a while ago at H Café. He wants to go Europe 2014 as well. Maybe have a meet over xmas hols if weather is good?? Maybe PM me rather than block the forum up.

    My guess is BMW's. 6 have panniers which look like BM's, and the other 2 have those funny BMW panniers which look like a pod with 2 straps round it. I would have said RT1200 but maybe K series.
