Time for a ride into the Cotswolds before the serious wet and cold weather set in.

Monday saw me at City Hospital for an insurance requested medical examination.


Wednesday and the Bullet went to the Touchdown cafe for dinner, then on to Bourton on the Water for cake.


Sunday and DOT ended up at Uttoxeter for the car and bike show.  Bought a D14 bottom end - less crank shaft.

Stopped for a cuppa at the cafe on the A518 . . . it was warm enough to sit outside . . .not bad for November.

Got as far as Stafford and DOT broke the exhaust about two inches below the manifold - sounded good on the M6.


Took the car over to Towsure later on and bought a new tent.   A Vango "Airbeam" Kinetic 500.

OK - so it was expensive, but it means I just might be able to go camping again - I dare say I won't get the chance to try it until next year.
