Unfortunately I'm out too ( :'() - my little sister has invited herself over for the weekend ( :thumbsup:). It'll be nice to see her, but she could have picked a more convenient weekend!

Hope it all goes well and I look forward to reading the ride report. Fingers crossed this becomes a bit more of a fixture and I can do it next time.

The forecast goes look good!

What do others plan to decorate their bikes with? I'm searching for inspiration.

Metoffice forecast (Pickering) is dry, BBC is wet atm; hoping for a Metoffice win... 

Decorating my bike with a large diffused fixed red LED and reasonably high intensity white LED.    ;D   However I do plan to go for an understated steampunk look.   ;)

That's a face mask, yes?

Couple of people asking me about the weather - I know as much as you lot!

The ride is still going ahead, just bring rain gear, spare dry clothes and whisky. I'm working on a backup (probably head to Seamer McD's if we get to Malton or Thornton and it's really grim).

See you all in York.

I'm totally up for this. Rain wear if necessary - cheerful disposition as always! :-)

See you all soon!

I've screwed up. I can't afford to go anymore, which means I'm letting Deano down and letting others down. I'm so sorry. - I was really looking forward to this, got blinking lights for the bike and everything.

I'm sorry.
:(

Hi Deano,

I couldn't have done this ride anyway because of a family commitment but if its re-scheduled to an alternative date I'd probably be up for it,- dependent on work as my new job requires me to work 1 in 3 weekends.

Well, the Goths won't be back until April! And I think that's a quieter affair. Maybe try again next year.

I wasn't due to be riding, but looking out the window from my nice warm dry living room - there's very little chance I'd want to go out in this. It's heaving down.

I wasn't due to ride, either, but just when I was starting to get a bit jealous at missing another drenching...

The WGW is on from 30th October-1st November next year. Riding on the Friday would mean arriving in Whitby on actual Halloween! :thumbsup:

The batteries will have died by then.

I didn't make it up to Scarboro' in the end.  Shame the ride didn't go ahead; seems like it was pretty wet though.  Will store my steampunk artefact somewhere safe...
