That would be great if it was on 703NAS - who knows what the future holds Ian?

Friday 21st August was the day of our North Devon Tour. Organised by Ian and Maria Parkinson.
Elbow nudging as greetings and social distancing based on the rules were in effect.
Nine Morgan Three Wheelers and two Pembletons met up near to J27 of the M5. The weather forecast was really miserable with rain all day but that does not deter proper enthusiasts ( or people who have been to Grindelwald !)

However the Parkinson magic worked yet again, it did rain all day but never where we were. The tour took place on B roads through North Devon, lots of twisty bits, hills etc. First stop at Quince Honey Farm in South Molton was a welcome coffee stop.
The Tour continued on the B3227 through Torrington with fabulous Morgan driving roads.Eventually we reached Bideford ( The Little White Seaside Town) for the lunch stop. Wetherspoons was the ideal stop, good beer, fair priced food and lots of space.
The Mogs attracted lots of attention and the Mayor of Bideford was very pleased we had chosen his town to stop off at and we had a good chat about tourism in general.

Suitably refreshed it was time for the Tour to continue, this time along The Atlantic Highway ( A39) and to Widemouth Bay. A super little town in North Cornwall. Here it was spectacular, the sun came out, the waves were beating onto the beach and we were all sat on the balcony of The Bay View Inn having a drink and a chat.

Maria and I would like to thank all those who supported the tour. Paul R drove from Suffolk, Lee Cliff from Yorkshire, Paul and Rachel from Bristol and we had several new faces with new M3W,s including Martin Love with his gorgeous ORANGE M3W. The colour really suits the Mog. We also had Justin Clements in the Ex Keith Broomfield M3W. Sadly Justin was the only casualty of the day when the Mog expired on the way home.
Investigation found that the drive rollers had all disintegrated !! Needless to say,the Mog is next week going up to Cumbria for the expertise of Phil Bleazey and the full Monty driveline conversion.
The only way to ensure continued driveline reliability.
Well, it was great to see all you guys again, it was decided we must do this all again and soon, so watch out for details posted here. We are planning two more day tours, an end of season do and maybe more. Why not do an overnight like some guys did ?
Numbers will need to be restricted so do not hesitate to confirm if you wish to join in.
Social Distancing rules and VMCC guidance is used,
Ian and Maria.
