If the OP lets us know when he's available we might be able to sort something out.

If you fancy a bit more of a ride head over to seaways at fridaythorpe then you can either head to the the coast or loop back round Malton way for good ride

Ahhhggggh....,.,..went to Holmfirth many years ago......wife comes from Bradford so it was on the way home and a Guzzi rally at the time......is this the cafe featured in LOTSW? If so, we were there while the plankton were asking questions like "can I have compo's mug?" Etc. etc. etc.........Never again..... :evil:
Oh my God, what's happened? I don't know man...I just got here myself!
