    Moist

    who kept saying moist

    The weather was that

    Thank you Colin (Borderraider) for organising a great weekend.
    I thought I was crazy for attending an advent, so far away when the weather was forcast crap.
    However, I now realise I would have been crazy to miss it

    Brilliant weekend, the weather made no difference and met a lot of new friends


    P.s spent the last 80 miles with brake failure illuminated on the panel
    Seems I had to only had to rely on my front brake

    Cheers

    Yes thanks for a good weekend away we all enjoyed it, and the weather was really kind. The odd times we got wet we got dried just as quickly. Made it home without virtually a drop of rain too so well happy

    Smile Superb - if moist!!

    Thanks Colin, Georgia, Mort and Gail!!

    Just got in - despite the wind trying to blow us off for the last leg

    A brilliant weekend, with great folks, loads of laughs and mud packs included for free! Thanks for the two brill rides outs, fantastic scenery and sights - which franchise was it? Really glad we didn't let the weather deter us - wouldn't have missed it for the world.

    Thanks to Ash too for your hospitality in the cosy camper

    Looking forward to the next one, cheers.

    Did, Becky and Richard

    Well done lads and lasses. Sorry I had to miss most of it but enjoyed the bits I got to. Buzzing despite the weather.
    We should learn from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism. [/I]

    What ... no photographs :-(

    Many thanks to Colin and everyone that had a hand in organising this years Bordering With The Inane ... my party thoroughly enjoyed the craic, the Germans being made to feel really welcomed ... and enjoyed the mild ride out on Saturday with Magnet and Harry The Cat & Co.

    OK some piccies ... anyone else got any

    We had left Decky and Annie up at Dent on the Thursday, so that I could drop Miss Milly off and pick up the bike for the weekend



    The only time I was to see Johnny Boxer before he went down with man flu and sneaked off back home ...



    Hope you're better JB and fit for the Masham Extravaganza at the end of the month

    We met up with Mirko (1200GS) his wife Suzanne (F650 twin) son Marc (F800S Chris Pfeiffer Special ... U Boat Officer) and his girlfriend Jule at Hull Ferry Terminal Friday morning. I use the word 'we' loosely ... Sue set off, with me, on her G650 X-Country, broke down (air temperature sensor) went back home on the recovery truck, broke out the ever ready Yamaha TTR 250R from the rear of her garage, and came up to Bellingham later the same day.

    I met up with Decky and Annie at The Lion Inn, Blakey Ridge, and rode in to the campsite at Bellingham together ...



    Harry the Cat ...



    Wanted no publicity ... ha ha



    Annie has a drink problem ... two hands, one mouth



    Annie heckles the guys playing pool, she wants to show them how to do it ... Decky wants another bier ... and Magnet looks on disapprovingly



    Mirko and son Marc



    Sue's ever faithful TTR ... it was to get thrashed up hill and down dale in the days to come, touring the west coast of Scotland. It never missed a beat



    Back to the pool table. Annie says she doesn't take a good photograph

    Looks OK to me



    Meanwhile Magnet plans the Saturdays ride out ... great day Fran, thank you



    Sunday morning our little tribe set off for Scotland ... but that's another story

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

    A quick thanks from Leanne and I to all those involved in organising the event. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and had a great time on the ‘spirited’ ride out. For future reference I can highly recommend the Lynne View B&B – our hosts made us feel extremely welcome and couldn’t do enough for us despite being in their 80’s!

    Really enjoyed the event and hope to be back for more next year
