LAY-OFF SYSTEM FOR GROUP RIDING.
WE USE THIS SYSTEM THE LEAD BIKE WILL INDICATE A POSITION FOR THE BIKE BEHIND TO PULL OVER AS A DIRECTION MARKER FOR THE GROUP.
This is normally done by pointing to an area on the road where the Marker Bike is to stop. This bike acts as a direction marker for the rest of the group USING HAND SIGNALS ONLY, turn off indicators. ALL THE GROUP PASS THE DIRECTION MARKER BIKE, WHEN THE TAIL-END BIKE ARRIVES THE MARKER BIKE PULLS AWAY IN FRONT OF THE TAIL-END BIKE AND FOLLOWS THE GROUP TO THE NEXT DIRECTION MARKER BIKE. This system works even if the group is broken-up in traffic, as the marker bike
MUST always remain in place until the TAIL END BIKE arrives.
THE LEAD BIKE AND TAIL END BIKE WILL HAVE YELLOW REFLECTIVE OVER JACKETS

Sunday 15th Oct Run to Gossips Café in Yarmouth, only a few turned up this month for quite a nice extended run to Yarmouth. Just before we left a Vintage Van turned up in the car park (pictured) which, when compare with another 2 vehicles we encountered (also pictured), shows just how vehicles have changed. They were the largest tractors and trailer units I have ever seen. Of all places they were in Broad Lane which can be found on the right about half a mile past Chessell Pottery on the middle road. The lane links the middle road and Forest Road through Wellow, the lane is very narrow in spite of its name and is where we met the Tractors, we bike had to be paddled past them with inches to spare. The lane is normally little use and has views across the Solent over Yarmouth, today it was misty and the view was partially hidden. The weather was warm today and there was plenty of space inside and out. Nice to see a new member, and, to chat to a couple of members just back from their USA adventure riding Harley Davidson's. Thanks to Michel Tail End Charlie..
(Just a note, whenever you are the laid off person make sure you stop where you can be seen)
(Quick Note: please do not use indicators when in the lay off position, if you are stopped with your right hand indicator going it will confuse other road users when approaching your position, please use your arms to indicate to others in the group which way to go).
