Donations up to £550 which is absolutely brilliant thanks to everyone. I'm aiming for £600 so happy with that, hopefully will get to target before I set off Fri.

I'm off work Thursday so will give the bike a good going over and pack everything ready for an early start Fri , planning to be on the road by 6am to get past Dartford and the M25 before rush hour :mrgreen:

Lisa from the Conwy MC has said it is okay for Rob to collect on the site. The club remember Steve for his off at the caravan park where he broke his leg, and were sorry to here of his passing.


Shine on you crazy diamond.

Nice to hear that, I remember him doing it, think he was riding my old CB250 at the time, he was very determined to get back to motorcycling as quick as possible which he did.
Many thanks to the Motorcycle club, and of course Rob for doing the the ride for his chosen charity.

Thanks everyone , I was really amazed with the response from the Dragon Facebook page very supportive and lots of donations.

The bike is ready to go , I'll be heading round the M25 around 6am all being well hopefully I'll get there at a reasonable time:

Also printed out the information of the ride and my reasons for doing it along with a picture of Steve on his cub.
Planning to attach them to the windshield along with a collection pot once I'm parked hopefully I'll get a few more penny's.

Donations are £10 off £600 now :mrgreen:
