The RV was supposed be no later than 0945. So I arrived at 0920 and found one scooter there and John the organiser.
I parked up near the church and went into the coffee shop. A couple of skinny latté later the scooters had begun to multiply and a couple of other bikes had joined in.
I was talking to some of the guys when we discovered that the church proceedings started at 1100.
At 1045 we were asked to fire-up and give a rev as the hearse passed by.
It was getting on for noon when we finally got to move and the escort began.
The cremation commitment was private for the family. I carried on from there to get a parcel from the post office and home.
It was cold but dry and sunny.
