What a brilliant weekend - took me 6 1/2 hours to get down there and 6 1/2 hours to get home but absolutely defiantly worth it for the company and riding.

Steve and family as usual made a huge effort to make the event as brilliant as always.

Bounce & Steve - a genuine pleasure riding with you. I had a fantastic day looking for lost dogs and cats and other critters, one of the best days riding I have ever had – great company and great riders ...... and I stayed uprightish (belly landing on the bars doesn't count as technically I was still in contact with the bike and kind of upright).

Went home via Leicester (work - bloody diversions due to the Grand Prix were a pain) then to a huge thunderstorm down the M62. Got home to lashing rain and got soaked unloading bike and kit only for the sky to turn blue and the sun come out just as I was putting the ramp back on the trailer having finished – bloody typical – will I be back again next year – you better believe it.
