Despite it being the middle of winter, rain forecast and a route which had us criss-crossing the hills and Great Divide 8 members were silly enough to join Pat for his ride.  Wonderful what freedom from lockdowns will do.   BMWs were definitely in the majority with Colin, Jack, Jeff, Roger and Steve (reluctantly) all mounted on Bavarians.  John and Pat were on very different Triumphs while Les and I were mounted on Japanese bikes.
