What a great Breakfast/Ride/MotoGP event we had on Sunday (can’t call all that just “a ride”). Four of the more bright eyed and bushy tailed met up for a 7am breakfast Cheryl’s Place (voted #1 breakfast restaurant in Brighton for many years). After we had our fill two more riders joined the ranks to create a very diverse group (full on sport, standard, cruiser and adventure bikes were all represented…you see, we all can just get along! :-).
