    While imbibing some fine English wine a few months ago it occurred to me that there must be a fair selection of vineyards and wineries in our fair country.

    The first Saturday in August saw C&F try something a little bit different, a ride out on a Saturday to a Motorsport event at Silverstone.

    Mid July is holiday season isn’t it? Well, not for C&F as eighty-one members signed in for the ride in very warm and muggy weather.

  • Staycation³  19 June 2016

    As ever, we benighted few trapped within the curtilage of this sceptred isle were forced to compensate for not being able to attend the Chapter’s Premier overseas event of the year...

  • Staycation Ride²  12 July 2015

    It really was sunny when we did the recce, honest!

  • Red Baron Ride  14 June 2015

    It’s a shape and a sound and a feeling, and it seems to apply equally to Harleys and Spitfires.

    Riding into the hotel car park in glorious evening sunshine to see a row of gleaming hogs lined up was the best.
