High spots of the day? It was as if a huge family of overlanding enthusiasts had got together. Yep, family! In between book signing I spent the whole day chatting. Fantastic. So many friends and so many overlanding bikes there to look at – the full range – C90s right eh way up to the big boys.The second? Riders coming from as far afield as Wales, Cornwall, Scotland, Holland, Belgium, Russia, and Australia. This duo had literally just arrived in the UK.
The third big high was Rob Archibald setting off around the world – on his 125cc, and Daren Carter setting off around the world on his old mate – his trusty GS. I wish I could bottle the feeling they were having as their big rides started. Wonderful. Everyone gave them a fantastic send off.We headed home with huge smiles on our faces. Thanks to everyone who stopped off to say hello and have a natter. Cheers!
And this very cool video from Overlanding enthusiast Iain Harper will give you a really good taste of the day. Ace Cafe Overland Day 2015
