    Big thanks from me too .....

    Brilliant event , the guys excelled themselves with the choice of location. The Cheviot were fab 'hosts' , road ride ran like clockwork and i really enjoyed meeting some new faces plus, as I don't get to go to many events nowaydays, catching up with some of the 'regulars' too....you know who you are.

    Big apologies to Mark for nicking his parking spot when I pitched my tent.........next time bring a can of that paint they use to mark out footy pitches and paint the appropriate picture on the grass before I arrive

    The ride back was fun. Despite leaving in beautiful sunshine, and shedding a layer before we left it was bloody wet & windy all the way from Hartside cafe, the whole way down the M6 to my front door....not been that damp & cold on a bike for a while. An ickle bit scary watching Paul mixing it with the lorries etc on his TTR with the wind, spray, rain and and no visor to boot.

    One last point, somebody needs to have a bloody serious word with the campsite owner about the gents showers before you hold another event there.

    We met some wonderful people and hope to meet them all again soon.

    I am that tail end charlie. Thanks to all. It was great sitting at the back watching a long line of bikes (23) streching out in front of me in the rolling hills. I wish i had a video. What a great weekend. Thanks to Rob and Colin for their time to organise it all and of course it helps if the rest of you turn up to enjoy it. But dont forget to keep it to yourselves as we want our roads to remain quiet and not full of Southern softies. LOL
    we came we saw we went home

    Many, many thanks to Rob, Colin and their lovely wives, Gail and Georgia.

    We got back this afternoon and can say that it was worth the 750 mile round trip to ride such stunning roads in great company. The campsite was brilliant. It's not often you find one with such fantastic views but within 100 yards of the village centre (and pub)!

    If it's going to happen next year, put our names down now!
    Every day I wake up is a good day.

    It was a pleasure to meet you two, if only intermittently over the weekend.

    I'll repay you for your cooking tips with some tales about one of your former home towns when I see you next time: It has changed a lot and surprised me when I arrived.
