"Let's do it" said David Bailey. "Why not ?" I replied "What could possibly go wrong".
Essentially we were both at "silly trip" dead end due to other things in life taking precedent. This would give us something silly to throw the bikes at. Dave rides the same model of Peg as the "Bastard". But talks to her better (calls her Betty) and throws her around more. In recent years he has encouraged me to do some green lanes and off road. It is sort of fun and exhilarating. Until you fall off.
For our first outing we (well, OK, Dave) chose a short route from Baslow in the Derbyshire Dales to Congleton. Only 1 major ford crossing to tackle. We met up with Roy, another Peg owner, but he cheated and brought his XT350 instead.
