    Hi John

    Glad you made it back ok. We have missed you.

    We had a vote and agreed you'd go through to the next round...

    Reception asked if the sofa was comfy, as they may use it as overspill when they get busy. Samantha said she would give you a go if you came back.

    I know you are from the North and cannot read very fast so I have typed it slowly for you

    It was a pleasure meeting you and look forward to the next time.

    Mark

    Ps yes, I am posting under the influence

    I'm back (cos of work)

    Had a brilliant time and great time with a bunch of very good bikers.
    When I can remember how to resize photo's I'll put some on.
    In the mean time, the routes are great fun and the weather has been reasonable (apart from the 3 hrs rain storm I had coming through Germany)
    If your going, fill out outside Italy, it's expensive!!

    May thanks to Joybringer for all his hard work

    Wow, what a trip, great routes, great hotels, great food, great weather, and most of all great company.
    A massive thanks to Joybringer and everyone else who made this trip what it was, brilliant.
    Bikes all washed and polished and ready to go again.

    In the meantime, here's a few to whet appetites...

    Eary start for me this morning though not as early as Podrick, I am glad I was awake when he left or I wouldn't have twigged the entrance gates were activated by a motion sensor and might have wasted time trying to guess the pin code to open the gates- like Gerry
    Home by midday, washing dumped in the laundry,no pics uploaded as yet, I need a holiday to get over the holiday
    Well done to Mark for sorting a superb trip, good to meet old friends and make some new ones

    Great trip. Thanks to Mark for organising everything and the fellow travellers for the convivial company in the evenings.
    This space deliberately left blank as the author writes too much pretentious bollocks as it is.

    Had to press the call button to get the gate activated,
    was greeted by the chef in his Y fronts asking me if I'd paid before he'd open the gate

    absolute classic

    as usual, m25 completely fecked, 4 junctions worth of filtering, then m4 junc 18 thru to m5 interchnage fecked, filtering, then m4 past newport fecked, more filtering, still, at least it was only 20c, rather than 32c

    should have used the a303 after all...should always listen to podricks advice

    good to meet some of the ukgser legends....thanks to mark for great routes and hotels, the company of such a class bunch of tossers was hard to beat

    miles: 2633

    oil used: 250ml

    petrol: lots

    beer: seemed like even more

    wine: not enough (my fault, stuck on beer)

    beats missed: none

    chicken strips left: a tiny bit on the front. must try harder

    weight gained: daren't look

    fucks given: none

    bike still covered in dead insects and general filth, and resting in the garage.
