Forry, Tuned and the Royal couple arrived shortly afterwards having been caught in a shower on the way down, Tash looked decidedly moist.

As the afternoon wore on and more Tossers arrived the bar did steady business while tyres were kicked and acquaintances re-newed.

The excitment of the whole affair proved too much for James Burton who had a little accident. :eek:

Of course in true Tosser style the moment was recorded for posterity

Although Shapeshifter just looked!

Needless to say a good time was had by all, some staying up to all hours, while others headed off to bed in preparation for Saturdays runs, of those more later........

The road ride headed off at 10.30 and after refueling headed through Westport for the first stop at Silver Strand.

At the stop off for lunch Shapeshifter locked his helmet to the bike then found he had left the key at the hotel!

A local workman repairing the bridge which had been washed away in a flash flood came to the rescue however and we were soon on our way.

Back at the hotel we met up with the off road crew and those who had headed off to explore by themselves and enjoyed the view and sunshine.

The evening meal and charity raffle were most enjoyable, especially when it was discovered Tuned In had won the Hograost 2008 wrist band.

All in all another great Tossers event, thanks to all involved in the organisation, the hotel for it's great rooms and food and all those who bought me drinks on the Friday and Saturday nights. See you at the next one!
