In search of abandoned villages!


Recommended Posts

But here in the UK we don't have many at all!!


Plenty of abbeys and castles though :D


Took a nice 123 mile ride today in 10 degrees freezing cold weather not like that sunny Spain we keep seeing pics of :lol:


Took a visit to Kirkham abbey today to have a look and walk around sadly being the UK we have to pay to walk around them! My mate says its for the upkeep and we decided they need a new roof :lol:


After that we went in search of some food! all the places we went to that are normally open was closed :shock: its getting to that time of the year where they either don't bother to open or only for a few hours :x


Found many new to us local "roads" that was nice and quiet but there was plenty of crap on the roads from farm vehicles which made things interesting at times :lol:


Discovered my mates BM was struggling to start and causing a few issues with the can bus system on his F800gs turns out the little aftermarket spotlights he has seem to draw a lot of power which was slowly draining his battery :?


a couple of pics! no dogging sites [mention]XTreme[/mention]!

Excellent [mention]Stu[/mention].......few places on your map that I've stayed at in the 70's and 80's - Bridlington and Beverley.


Not sure what all that green stuff is.....I'm sure it serves some purpose though.

[mention]XTreme[/mention] Those places will have changed a lot since you was last there :shock:


9 times out of 10 I head towards Beverly on a ride and usually end up visiting Bridlington too! Usually do a Thursday night chippy tea in Brid then the long way home ask [mention]NeilM[/mention] its a cracking run up that way 8-)

Every time I went to Bridlington......think it was in 1988 and 1990, there were always bloody caravans everywhere.


I can also remember staying in Goole.....but I think that's further south.

Cracking roads around there.

But they can catch you out.......


The road from our van to [mention]Stu[/mention] house is both quick and challenging. With scenery chucked in for good measure.


5 mins out of Brid you are in the country back roads.
