Reading Ride Out to Sammy Millers Museum, 12.07.09

A ride out to Sammy Millers Museum at New Milton, Hampshire was arranged for the 12th of July.  Andi prepared the route and led the run and Chris volunteered to be tail end charlie.  A total of ten bikes met up at The Swan; Andi, CBR600, Mick CB,1000R, Mia VT750, Bryan, CBF1000, Ian, CBF1000, Dave and Di, VTR1000, Taz and Stacey, Varadero, Colin, Fireblade, Roger VF750C and Chris, VFR750.  We departed just after 10.00 and made our way across country to Newbury before picking up the A4.  On the run in to Newbury, Bryan unfortunately picked up a puncture and his ride was terminated.  He was later rescued by the AA but a new tyre was required.
From Newbury we headed along the A4 to Hungerford and then turned south and made for Salisbury.  We encountered a bit of a shower on the way but it soon passed and we didn't have to make any unscheduled stops for waterproofs.  At Salisbury we stopped for fuel and light refreshments for about 15 minutes before getting on our way again.  We made for Shaftesbury before heading up zig zag hill and then riding the spectacular ridge towards Verwood.  We dropped down into Ringwood and finally into New Milton and Sammy Millers Museum.
Lunch was taken before a tour of the museum, which was very interesting and included some beautiful, classic racing Hondas.  Soon though it was time to leave and we made our way up through Romsey and Winchester to West Meon where we stopped for the last time at Loomies Cafe.  We made our ways home from there having had a really good day.  Thanks to Andi for putting together a cracking route with some breathtaking scenery and great roads.
