I don't think there's any other commercial ferry direction, unless you know differently
Wightlink from isle of wight to the mainland
Very commercial only day it doesn't run is xmas day

6 out of 9. The ride back past Dunkirk was quite nostalgic, BMW leading, 5 MT's, BMW at the rear.
A Jap in the middle of that group would have ruined it. Did you see the look on his little pale face when we caught up with him at the terminal while he was talking to his 'new' pan best mate?

I've found a few knocks and bruises since getting home, nothing too serious though.

Great weekend everyone! Any trip with loads of beer and no hospital visits is a success. 8-)

Problem: 1987 R100RS fails to charge the battery just before departure for Sinterklaastreffen.
Symptom: No charge warning light coming on at low revs (when it should light).
Remedy: Ride to Sinterklaastreffen on 1982 R100RT. Also - today investigate charging circuit.
Result: The light is fine, but a poor contact to the light prevented it from energising the charging circuit. The battery is now receiving a very healthy charge.
