    brassmonkey's picture book

    The bike just a day or two before setting off



    Spotted at the services - at least he's honest.



    The journey started a couple of weeks before the weekend in question, with some much needed TLC to be adorned on my Airhead.
    Llangollen, including my solo-in-the-absence-of-Tarka-leading-a-rideout-and-me-not-checking-the-site-for-latest-updates-rideout a few weeks previously, had been the furthest I had been on it and it had reinforced the fact that I should really sort a few jobs out I had been putting off. So, much late-night spannering ensued in order to go the extra mile (or 225).
    It nearly all ended in tears as I thought I had fcuked up the bike and my sleeping mat into the bargain trying to replace the SHB's. But perseverence paid off in the end and I managed to get the bike to a fairly rideable state to go down to Devon.
    I had suffered a drenching on the way down and did consider calling in at Alimey4u2's abode for some respite but pushed on regardless.

    I finally arrived at about 9.30pm Friday night after being led a merry dance by the GPS (my own fault - I spent so much time getting the bike ready I never even looked at a map ) and wobbling the entire journey due to overtightened head bearings which wouldn't allow me to go over 65 mph. I had hardly taken my helmet off before Tarka had shoved a firkin of scrumpy in my hand. I had never met him in person before so I'll have to assume this is how he greets everyone who turns up without Hi-Viz or auxilliary lighting.
    After throwing the tent up and chucking some bedding inside I then made my way down to what can only be described as a shed full of Tossers and Airheads including one particular individual who shall remain nameless, but was most insistant that he have my babies.
    Anyway, no photo's from Friday night as I was busy playing catch-up.
    Drinks and curries were thrust upon me as were questions as to what took me so long to get there, how were the head bearings and futher requests for babies.
    Much merriment and imbibing ensued into the err, wee hours as we partook of the Piston Bitter which appeared to run out (but more of that later) and Proff's cider. There was Vodka as well, but I don't think anyone else got a sniff of that apart from a certain gentleman who had to be escorted to his bed. Three times. And ended up sleeping under it.
    Anyway, Friday night became Saturday morning and with it came the rain which had been threatening to venture further south all evening.

    A somewhat damp Saturday saw a rather subdued Thunder forlornly admiring Kenny's bike




    He also appeared to be missing something




    Various Tossers were busy spannering away




    I went to inspect the supplies.

    The Horn Of Plenty:







    Then, during a brief period of the communications blackout lifting, I received a text from Mr. Kelley informing me there was a waif & stray lost in the wilderness. The look of relief at having arrived was obvious.




    After much foraging, Thunder finally finds what it was he sought




    And he delights in showing exactly what he was most worried about losing




    No, not his camera so much as the picture held within




    Ey! Calm down. Dat's my friggin' camera, dat is! I stoled it fair n square. Gis it bacchhh.




    A presentation




    It was about this time that the blue patches of sky had decided to join together so the Tossers could go out to play. But more of that later.

    Have you noticed? The older a man gets, the bigger his bag becomes

    I've left it a bit long before continuing the picture book but we'll see how well my memory stands up with a few more visual prompts...

    Sid takes Proff's 650 for a spin



    Rossi wonders what's keeping him?



    A recconno.. A search party is sent out



    Am I doing the right thing?



    "I think I hear someone coming back..."



    "...Ah, it's only dad."



    "Maybe I'd better go and look for myself"



    Sid returns.



    Rob goes for a spin.



    Si takes one of Sid's boy's bikes out to play.



    He's very excited.



    Paul checks his non-Airhead out for verticality.



    Sid goes for another spin.

    Mr Farmer returns



    Proff gives Flipfly some tuition



    It's that way, son



    "I'm not too sure about this..."



    "Hey, it's out of my hands..."



    Rossi & Spud make some friends



    "Oh, yes. I rather like that."



    Dads 'n' Lads



    An oasis of sunshine amongst the grey wet clouds.



    A random elephant.

    Sid has a bike or two




    Or three



    Or four



    Or five



    And the occasional elephant



    "Ey, I was only having a look, like!"



    But Sid knows better. Just look at his eyes - he knows Kenny was scoping the joint.



    "Take this, you scouse git!"



    Sid and KTM mount Kenny




    Pastyman has enjoyed his ride



    Dads 'n' Lads part 2.
    Rossi looks excited...
    for now.



    Spud follows too



    Suree looks on with concern



    Rossi's outlook has changed somewhat
    "I'm never doing that again"



    "Yummy! A muddy puddle."



    "Oh, yes. My favourite too."



    "No comment."

    Words fail me...



    Roberta wants her man and won't take no for an answer



    "C'mon. Get 'em off!"



    Now spent, the poor gentleman has to be helped to his seat.



    "D'you know? I rather enjoyed that!"



    Trophy time.
    I can't remember what the trophies were for.

    England Kev gets a cup to go with his plate.



    Kenny gets one too, as well as Proffs wristwatch



    And Oggy gets one for Bushcraft. Well, sleeping in a hedge anyway.
