    Fook - you've been busy!!

    Ogri's is indeed called Wessons now.

    I look forward to perusing that list in a little more detail.

    Is this some sort of challenge to see who has been to the most?

    Is there a loyalty card scheme, 'collect ten stamps from different cafes'?

    However, add in:

    Lillie of Stockbridge

    Tea-rooms and bakery.

    Located in the centre of Stockbridge High Street.:

    Telephone: +44 (0) 1264 810754

    http://www.multimap.com/maps/#map=51...nd,%20SO20%206
    (On the S side of the High St, next to one of the small streams)


    More of a 'Mrs Miggins Cake shoppe' than a 'biker cafe'.

    27 for me. Not that it's a competition. Just a list people might find useful on a sunny day with no destinationin mind.

    Stupid bloody thanks thing.

    I know it's not a competition, and I may take advantage of your list next Thursday as it is my birthday and I have the day off. Looking at doing about a 400 mile round trip, which should be enough on a supermoto.

    Thanks for that, but I'm happy with what I've got, been to Wales and the continent on it and it copes perfectley well, just a bit hard on my arse but not that much worse than the R1 I had.

    Abergavenny Bus Station, Wales - must be one of the best roads in the UK on the way to that. Love it.

    Cabin Tea Rooms, Burnham on Crouch, Essex - The Burnham Bends!

    Ullapool Chippy - want to cane the tits off a sportsbike? Head to Ullapool :-)

    Walkers Café, Barton Mills picnic area, Suffolk - mug of tea and a cheesburger, please. with onions.

    Finchingfield Tea Rooms and pub, Essex - Twisty central. N,S,E,W - it's all quality.
