It’s Saturday the 16th of February and we Brits are experiencing a mini heat wave of 15 c at this time of the winter months! Our ride takes us to the 

Grindleford Station Cafe – Cool Places https://www.coolplaces.co.uk/places/uk/england/…/7794-grindleford-station-cafe.

It’s just like a MANIC BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND with all the locals waiting to be FED & WATERED!

 Kiwi Bob’s on his AG 125cc Farm Bike. 

Bob’s son Pete now rides Bobs DR 650 which is just to CLEAN & SHINEY! (When Bob owned it was always covered with DUST & GRIM!) “When l see this DR, l think of a MARRIAGE PROPOSAL made to “ME” while on a journey from the UK via Europe, Turkey, Iran on a 12 hour ferry crossing to Dubai UAE. (Straits of Hormuz “Love Boat”) Bob was riding this DR and myself on my BMW R100 G/S This PROPOSEAL OF MARRIAGE came from an Iranian lady while on this ferry crossing.

Bandar Abbas – Sharjah ferry | Caravanistan https://caravanistan.com/transport/persian-gulf-ferry/bandar-abbas-sharjah/ She wanted to open and run a SUB POST OFFICE in the UK and l would become “Mister” Postman Pat | Tricky Transport Day | Postman Pat Full Episodes … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKBfoF8OdFo However on arrival in the UAE at the docks yours-truly made a RAPIDE exit into the Arabian sunset!

It was quite a while to be served at the cafe with the starving punters forming a LONG queue. Her are the “Three Fine Dinners “having the GRINDLEFORD SPECIAL !
