Sunday morning 27th July 08 we leave Gt Yarmouth on scooters for a ride out to meet up with the motor cycles at Norwich. I personally had not done this run before so i didn't really know what to expect what with 30 or 40 scooters and around 1100 bikes all in the same car park what could possibly happen? Well what happened was it turned out to be one if not the best ride out i have ever done in my 30 years of scootering. From the AFSC was myself and Dave mc coulough [flint] and ian burnett [yogi] or better known as statler and waldorf from the Muppet show. Well it was decided that we the scooters were going to lead this parade of 1200 who decided this? I am not sure but it was probley an who dares wins situ and we went for the start line an got in 1st.The chequered flag went down an we was off an running it's great that blue smoke when you're at the front. All along the A47 towards Acle and on to Gt Yarmouth and then on to Lowestoft there were people cheering and waving standing on bridges in lay-by's and all along the road side. We finally finished at the royal green in Lowestoft in excess of 12,000 was raised for the A an E James Paget Hospital a fantastic day out followed by a few pints [about 10 actually] and some of Daves Mc Couloughs war stories he reckons when he joined the army they didn't have no's coz they all knew each other. This cavalcade is run every year so if you fancy a run next time i will put it up on the AFSC  site .Statler and waldorf have well an truly got the scootering bug and are now planning the trip to Belgium in sept and have insisted that i go with them so what could i say? so see you on the run.
some run pics can be found at.
