    Only a few crashes, one toasted the bike, but no one hurt.
    Looking forward to the main event tomorrow

    Fantastic race day with BSB at Snetterton.
    There was a small selection of riders in the support races flying the Aprilia flag....

    Rode across south downs and arrived in Arundal.
    Small town centre but a huge preserved castle dating from 1067.
    Quaint roads and still many small original homes.

    A little hilly walking around but lots of bars and places to eat.
    We had Indian food and seems by the clean plates it was very good.

    A lot to do and so little time, we will add to the list for a return.
    Temperatures yesterday were in the 30's all day and it was almost too much for man and machine.

    Fully loaded and with 2 middle aged 'not lightweights' on board despite being 15 years old and just turning 35,000 miles she still made it to the stopover.
    A well placed pub with great beer.
