    its not a big deal, but if you can't handle the piss takes or take them the wrong way or have a laugh back, then its your choice.

    This place is what it is - and you are what you are : nenau

    Try going to other forums - they're much more sensible, that must be what you're after

    Matey Boy???

    A while in the making but definitely all worth it in the end for those that chose to go along and enjoy it, I see.

    Hats off to Magnum for a trip that worked on two levels:

    (1) A top time for those that went away on the jaunt. Clearly, what it was all about and all that anyone could have wanted for.

    (2) Fun for those that sat at home, watching and (from time to time) taking part with banter (whether wanted or not)

    What more could anyone want?

    Thanks for taking the time to post all the pic's etc. etc.

    The report was moved to the ride reports section as normal for everyone else and every ride/event/organised trip - same as everything is when it's all done and dusted.

    But this had to be different, in case others got confused and couldn't find anywhere to post it had to moved back to the invite section. And then with a BIG sticky just to help those confused

    This caused much mirth and amusement and maybe pushed things towards a divide.

    Almost all of the participants seemed to "get it", and a bit of self depreciation usually leaves everyone with a smile on their face.

    But, but but but. There's always a but.

    Flag things up, organise, delegate, plant a seed of an idea, offer a "come all, come everyone" trip and just do it.
    Take the crap, idiots, laughs, tears, ups, downs, plaudits, and damning, take it all as it comes, both good and bad.

    You'll find it's painless and transient whatever the verdict/outcome.
