We started today’s little jaunt with breakfast outside at the lovely Wharf side Cafe that is located at Sutton Cheney Wharf. Here you can sit and watch the narrow boats pass by while munching on a bacon batch or in Bob’s case a nice big fry up!

After we had finished our food we headed up the A447 towards Coalville and then onto the B5324 into Melton Mowbray, from here we carried on though the town and onto the B676 into Bourne. From here we decided to use Bob’s favourite toy (no the other favourite toy) and use his Garmin GPS to get us to Market Rasen where a couple of miles along the A361 you will find Willingham Woods

After following the A15 around Sleaford we finally approached Lincoln and we were rewarded with not only some great views of Lincoln Cathedral but also loads of AWAKS airplanes lined up on the tarmac at RAF Waddington

After Lincoln it was just 16 miles up the A46 to Market Rasen and after a few wrong turns we eventually found the Willingham Woods cafe.

The Willingham Woods cafe is just off the main A631 and is part of a small car park where people park up and go a wandering around the local woods, or if your a biker you can buy a cup of tea and a bacon batch and sit and admire all the other motorcycles parked up. Guess which one we did?

The atmosphere was very relaxed, probably aided by the unusually warm weather we were having but it was very relaxing sitting on our asses on the grass bank watching all the bikes (and ladies) pass us by. After an hour we decided that it was getting late (remember Bob's ASBO?) so we jumped back onto our bikes and decided to take the more direct A46 to Nottingham and then the A42/M42 home.

is there anyone out there that may be able to help on this one..?? Please forward onto the appropriate group .....thank you

My names www.peterbainbridge.com Guys I'm looking for funding for a Motorbike film clip, i have a storyboard which is in iDVD format, there are 25 still pix cut to 2 mins of the Led Zeppelin song '' babe I'm Gonna Leave You ''

its set on a motorbike (Black Rain meets Fellini's Histoires extraodinairies 68 (Toby Dammit) Terence Stamp but a mod version) ..a slick 21st century bike with big fat tyre's, (a few close ups) tyre size is important in the opening shot, the size sets out what your in for, big sound and quality ideas, our rider has broken up with girlfriend, he's leaving his beloved big city, he needs to be somewhere else, as he rides out through the city the clip illustrates his best memories.. we pass Blade Runner style talking billboards, the billboard actually sings to the rider as he goes by '' Babe I'm gonna leave you.? '' or simply moans toward him, there's a section in the song where this could be really cool

we pass people milling outside the club where his girlfriend plays (she's in a band) look, i could go on but a pix worth a thousand as they say.....if you guys would like to be involved in any way i will send you the storyboard iDVD CD, its to big to send online, (great quality) I've watched this maybe 20 times and I'm still lovin it.! it may not be very to objective making that statement but its pretty cool

its basically shot in colour and B/W in the same frame, I've been doing this for 5 yrs (as a still's style) the main character and his bike are shot in silhouette where suited, almost like a Japanese MANGA animation, the feeling is a poetic muscularity running throughout (see my work link below) I'm actually a fashion photographer i have a filmmaker buddy he'll put the production crew together he's been around, no prob there, anyway guys i know this sounds like a strange request, and it may well be.? but hey how many car ad's do we have to see, personally i'd like to see just ONE cool bike ad, I'm yet to see it, and climate change on everyone's lips, it might be the right time for a project such as this ....thanks guys...... www.peterbainbridge.com
