Yep, Thanks Nick.
There's nothing like seeing your old mates on their bikes to spur you on to getting your own back on the road. Thanks to Nathan at Riders for sorting out (most of) the parts I needed.

The Buellers held a meeting
They came from near and far
Some by Buell some by plane and some by motor car
As each bike was parked up
as each helmet doffed
Old Buellers rushed up to the loo, then cafe, to get them dognuts scoffed
One Bueller didn’t get his chit and had to pay for tea
It cost him over £1.20; goodness gracious me.

Pash took loads of selfies and photo’d bolts and bits
Then headed outside with his laptop to discretely google tits.
Some engineering porn was traded with B's exotic pegs
Which will allow Al to have both exclusivity, as well as comfy legs
All bikes made it there and back, most without a hitch
Others may as well been on the bucking bull as misfires caused a glitch.

Current ride: Buell 1125R
Hi Folks,
Derbyshire & Peak district run was attended by six Buell Owners.
I apologise firstly for not remembering all your names, but what I do remember is the experience & conversations & a vast amount of cakes that got eaten at the cafe stops. I also remember the fact that I left home at 10.00 & didn't get back in till 5.20 and that it felt like I'd only been out a couple of hours.
Anyway the ride started as planned at 11 ish, some fueled at the Local Sainsburys, there was a little hitch with a clutch/neutral light switch for one of the bikes on route' which fortunately provided the opportunity for Osteveo's pic with four of the Buells & Chatsworth House in the background whilst we waited for the others. We decided to ride to the nearest Cafe which was at Grindleford Station to stop & assess the situation, eat cake, bacon butties & a plate of chips some kind lady gave us.
The switch problem seemed to have righted itself so we decided to run to the next Cafe to re-check it was fine. We stopped again at Hathersage's Pool Cafe just another couple of miles further on after taking in the (not so breathtaking) "Surprise View". This is a view from height that looks right along the Hope Valley to Mam Tor, unfortunately it was misty & you couldn't see shit. Martin with his white X1 had to leave at this point as he had arranged to meet his missus & son back at Matlock Bath, so we arranged to meet him back there. The rest of us had more cake and one of the guys had a rather hefty dry scone which brought on a conversation about the "Stoning laws" passed in where ever and a variety of tales of the TT races & travel & accommodation experiences.
Whilst we sat at the cafe the mistiness had only cleared very slightly & it was decided to take the quicker route back to Matlock Bath taking in the view Of Burbage Edge & Froggat Edge (impressive rock outcrops) from the underside as we ran alongside the river Derwent on the way to Bakewell.
We Paraded through Bakewell without stopping followed the Derwent river returning to Matlock Bath.
We all had a stroll along the Riverside looking at the range of bikes & a quick stop at the Triumph Display. Martin & his Son found us eating more cake outside the Banque Cafe watching a few nutters blasting past at ridiculous speeds, whilst a few of us reminisced with various stories about our times down the coal mines whilst Pepper 2 explained he had been working at the Dowty Prop factory that supplied all of the hydraulic props for not just the coal mines but the (Phosphate?) mines which he had also been down.
Pepper 2 was on his highly modded XB12 which I couldn't stop drooling over.
I also rode with Osteveo back to the A38 to show him a shorter way back to the M1 in which time we swapped bikes for a while. Jesus I thought my 1125r ran well now after the work I'd done to it, Osteveo's CR blew it out the water, F**K!
Very easy going laid back day.
Thanks for your time guys, it was a great day thanks to you all.

Sorry Folks,

Posted my write up in the wrong section. My apologies, feel free to move it.

Sounds like the Riders day in Bristol was a hit, well done folks. Great weekend for Bueller's.
