    What an excellent report with great pics that totally capture the "misery". Although this was 5 years ago it totally sums up last weekends Dragon at the very same venue. However I wasn't quite so fortunate in finding anywhere resembling dry to pitch my tent. In fact the photo with the whelspin marks in the mud was what was available. So after collecting my badge and goody bag, vodka this year, and with 340 miles showing on the trip I rode back home. Thus missing the band and also any "lurgy" that could possibly have been caught.
    I rolled onto my drive having completed a round trip of 614 mainly wet miles, but strangely pleased with myself that I was still able to put in a fair shift on a bike despite my advancing years (72 this year), and had earned my badge although not in the conventional way.

    I'd have felt the same way and i'm only a junior (at 58 : )

    That back road from Llanrwst is my favourite piece of tarmac to ride on a dirt bike.

    As for the Dragon rally, I went once and that was more than enough but when it comes around part of me thinks about going again, but only a small part

    Great posts Tarka; the Draggon ; and the Elephant have been bit of s bucket list kind of thing for me for a long time; but I hate shitty boggy fields , although i have seen plenty at the TT over the years. Dent's a lot like the Draggon , I would imagine , and I always look forward to that, rain or shine. Like that Ural mug.

    Tours, training or custom made earplugs ... it's all here.
