Although if you hand painted a sign that said Chequers and had a beer and your number under it then I might make a Via only too-broken-to-ride allowance :lol:

Bugger!

I usually do this before the start but totally forgot!

I'm sure those who have already got tags can re add them if I remove them all?

Edit: removed all the old scores and updated the current ones :thumb:

Oh yes forgot to do that!

Collecting tags today caused great joy and great fear! Some of the roads were lovely and empty, one road between Taunton and the 303 was great- good tarmac completely empty, sun shining and good views followed by a series of completely unnecessary google map detours (shakes fist violently at that there Google) with a good dose of the steepest fear inducing decents and inclines down some muddy farm tracks that were made of gravel, sludge and potholes. If someone suggested I had a go at it it would have been a definite I should cocoa. On the upside me n 9T picked our way through it and I now have no fear off road!
Here’s the lovely view from tag ‘Route 303’

There’s some lovely’s tags for the South West :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: including the Sammy Miller museum.

That was a fellow journalist’s first impression of the BMW R nineT recently. It’s a pretty accurate summary; the R nineT is somewhat ill-mannered by modern motorcycle standards but also instantly, inarguably, infatuatingly wonderful.
