    Please put me and Ann down for the food on both nights.

    Sorted out all my fishing tackle today and packed the Hymer.

    Might try to get there on Thursday night, if not then Friday morning.

    Sounds like there's a lot of tin tents going to this. So how many motorcycles will be there?
    Most of us bring our bikes, tin tents does not mean no bikes just not sleeping on ground h

    I am still very much hoping to make it, however the mode of transport will depend on pain levels as my back is pretty unhappy with me right now. Scooter, bike or car at least I have some choices.

    Hope you can make it lofty! If you do manage it I can make you a vegetarian option. Let me know on the night.

    Jimish, the chilli can be 'dumbed down' - as I do for Ash. For those who like it really hot I will supply some Nam Pla Prik.

    So the list of those requiring food so far is:-

    Devon
    Ash
    Cookie and Angie
    Sid and Ann
    Jimish
    Paula and myself.
    Every day I wake up is a good day.

    Looking forward to meeting you lot!
    Dumbing down the chilli suits me fine Humbug - the rest of me has been dumbed down since retiring!

    I've got a tin tent myself, but SWMBO doesn't want to come on this one so I take the opportunity to get back to nature, so to speak, and camp with the bike. Reminds me how I'm being spoiled when in the tinny.

    Anyway, I want to try out my new tent - we could have a dance in it!! (and probably will, given enough beer).

    Might come today if I can get away - haven't got far to come.

    Late drop out ...

    ... as Jaq has picked up a nasty virus from somewhere and is alternatively sweating and shivering, so no camping for us. If she recovers enough we might bimble across for an hour or two but given the current mucus production, even that is doubtful

    Hi everyone. Long time listener, first time caller.

    Thought I'd finally chip in as I'm currently floating (not literally) around Dorset, slowly making his way back to the grim, undoubtedly wet coal fields of South Wales and wondered if a '02 Fazer 600 could be classed as a classic and thus a potential attendee? While I'm sure some may be kind and agree, they may not agree on this particular one. But I believe 'patina' and the unrestored look is all the thing these days...

    Anyway, this sounded like a great way to end a short but fulfilling South Coast tour, so I thought I'd ask.

    Hope everyone that does attend has a memorable, for nothing but good reasons, weekend.

    Best regards,

    Tim.

    Tim,

    I sure no-one will mind if you come along. You'd be made very welcome and not everyone will be on classics.

    Do you need food? It's not too late yet!

    No worries, hope you sort everything.

    Pity Jaq is under the weather, I reckon we could have kept her busy all weekend sorting out all the other poorly souls GWS Jaq and hopefully you will be well enough to call in and say hello

    Impressive lurking mate, nearly seven years between signing up and making first post! I think that could be a record.

    '02 Fazer is a classic, we got two, one road bike and another converted as a track day bike.

    You will be made very welcome.

    Plans to buy a F650GS after my test were shelved after deciding on something a little more oriental. Hence the long time lurk, but I’ll graciously accept any awards for record breaking! The sideboard could do with a splash of colour. However, things maybe about to change... My incompetence has finally caught up with me. They really shouldn't let me ride these things...

    A inadvertent neutral, a screaming engine and a panicked kick into second (going up hill and losing momentum), left me with a easily changeable broken chain, thanks to AA recovery and the nice man in the bike shop letting me push to the front of the workshop queue to get me on my way.

    The high pitched scary whine in the gearbox however... Picture in your mind Jeremy Clarkson’s Alfa 75... Damn. That GS (not mentioning either capacity or method of cooling) may be closer in my future than originally planned.

    But my audibly wounded stubborn Japanese pre teen (just) partner in crime and I have managed to limp home, but am very sad to say I won't make the weekend. I cannot thank you enough for your welcome and invite to a last minute stranger. Very sorry to miss it and I hope there will be another time for me and this weather holds for all. Was shocked to find somehow the Sun had got through Welsh immigration, so it's not all bad. At least there’s a jazz festival on to distract from the thoughts of a rather large bill...

    Sorry, rambling.

    May the sun stay warm and the beer stay cold for you all.

    With thanks,

    Tim.

    I really was hoping to get back on track on this but due to all sorts of crap with my house sale / MH purchase it just wasn't to be.

    Have a great time all in attendance , and have one for me, or two, or three...

    Never seen an event with as many people pulling-out.

    What are you going to do with the 3 gallons of chilli you will have left.
