went for a ride with the Versys.co.uk mob. weather wasn't good for photos, wasn't as bad as Washington/Oregon/NorCal in May/June, but thats another story

basic plan was to meet up at Devils Bridge, Kirkby Longsdale and head clockwise round the Lake District

6 of us made it to Charnock Richard services on the M6. before blasting through the moors in the Trough of Bowland

Clunky's (black), Stev1der (orange), Mine (orange), Dazzle's White Tiger, Neilo's ZZR and Jool's (orange) Versys's
got to Devils brdige to find the North East Versys massive had arrived already



14 of the 15 Versys's lined up at DB


line up at Boot (terminus of Eskdale/Ravenglass light railway)

series of shots at the other terminus of the Railway at Ravengalss










sadly one of the 2010 Yellow Versys's had an off coming down from Honister pass

some video's taken by Steve1der

DINNER STOP, NOT!
...apparently the guest house / cafe owner decided she didn't want 15 bikers inside her guest house. so we departed for the nearby Ravenglass railway cafe
met up with Dilbert at Kewsick on his 2009 stealth black.. so stealthy you cant see it in these pictures :)






about 320 miles all told, 120 in the lake district and another 200 miles or so transit
was great to see so many Versys's all at once, and in such a range of colours

Apart from the colour joke it must of been great to have so many V's in one spot. I have done 12,000km on mine and not run into one apart from the owner of my local bike shop who takes the green 09 demo everywhere.

yeah the previous best turnout was IIRC 12 or 13 at the North Yorks ride last year, we've had quite a few around 6..9 or so.

great to meet up with a diverse bunch of people who seemingly had just the Versys in common. interesting day out, interesting group, and aside from the 'off' coming down from Honister pass a great day out.

As Healdem has already said, a great day out and so good to meet like minded guys....shame about Andy`s off, but he was ok (apart from damaged pride) and he did manage to ride home.....it could have been so much worse.
Looking forward to the next one !

Nice pics, healdem. Unfortunately, not all of them seem to come up,

What's with the Oregon weather you had on those section Steve filmed? I thought you had left that behind here? :D
