That was quite an entertaining ride, good folk to ride with. Personally though I'll not be deliberately doing it again. I have slight depth perception issues in the dark even with super lights and I was amazed i didn't have an off. Also its cold and just not comfortable plus as I'm always knackered due to my ME my bodies screaming at me that I should be asleep. I'm a daylight rider :roll:
However once I get the one slightly annoying issue with the Niterider Dual lights (the lead jumps out on bumpy terrain) sorted I'll lend them out to those who do want to night ride. Dr S did give me them for free so I feel the need to pass on the Karma :wink:

Fantastic to meet the Clan last night. Great place and great company.
Wish I had made the effort to turn out ages ago.

Got home at nearly 2 am. Got back to Morpeth to find I had a flat battery and being an auto needed the RAC to come and lend me some jump leads.

Thanks for everything

Well that was a fantastic night, completely different daytime riding, brilliant fun. I feel sore and tired today, possibly more due to sleeping on my parents sofa.

I'm sure my riding was smoother at night, I got more air and took all the harder routes and jumps on the decent down spooky and the blue, all because I couldn't see what was coming until I'd already committed to a line :)

Thanks Kaiser for setting this one up, definitely one to run again in the future.

Still gutted I didn't catch ZZ on the dash.

And Gaz, I was retro all the way.
