Hi All,

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=o4aB50qNoz0

Five of us rode through this lot on Saturday afternoon,2 wings 1500 and 1800 (brand new!!),K1200 GT,600 Hornet and 600 CBF.
3 of the riders have less than 12 months riding experience,at one point I thought we wouldn't make it in one piece as myself and Dwayne on the GL1800 were almost blown off our bikes into a stone wall.
We knew the weather forecast wasn't good but nobody could have expected it to be this bad,freak conditions especially at this time of year.
On Sunday on the way home we took the scenic route along the side of Ullswater,the level in the lake had risen to such an extent that at one point we had to ride through water nearly a foot deep for the better part of a quarter of a mile!!
After wading through all this water the only problems suffered were with a Garmin Zumo (not 100% waterproof) and all the idiot lights lit up like an Xmas tree on the K1200GT.

Regards Steve
