Stormin the Barn - 25/7/2 Report

 

After twenty-one months of non-chapter activity the day finally came when it was time to ride again and storm the barn, an ancient oak beamed pub/restaurant barn dating back to doomsday times in the village of Chestfield inland from the North Kent coast.

Unfortunately, due to covid times plans changed and the venue was not in a position to accommodate us. This, plus three road closures on the day due to roadworks and inclement weather with thunderstorms, meant that chasing scenic country lanes across the North Downs was not practical or safe. Motorway, A and B roads it was then to our new destination at Herne Bay seafront. 

Twenty-Three Chapter members duly swiped in and following the safety briefing we all set of from Warrs SE for the seventy five mile rideout. Luckily, we managed to dodge the rain but apologies for the copious amount of loose gravel on the way to Graveney after the re surfacing. A test of our riding skills there!

 

We made a nice Harley rumble riding through Whitstable, got blown by the wind on Tankerton
slopes and waved at as we parked up by the Victorian clock tower on Herne Bay seafront where
members duly dispersed to consume coffee, chips and doughnuts.
A great rideout to get the chapter moving again.
Thanks to the Road Crew for assisting. Shaun, for opening up the dealership early and getting the
coffee urn warmed up and Warrs for the complementary Pain au chocolat’s.
