    Another message of thanks to Micky for organising this. A great weekend, the weather booking worked this year.

    My only comment is that the Paul Nicholls fella took us along routes that had a surface other than tarmac. I's swear that the holes in the tracks were left over from were the RAF were testing their bomb runs. I nearly needed a submarine not a Super Ten. I've now had to break the habit of a lifetime and wash the bike twice in one month, bloody ridiculous.

    A great days riding Paul, thanks, I owe you a beer next time.

    Thanks also to Fran and Tony for letting me join their run today until I peeled off to ride the A686 so that I could have some fun over Hartside Pass before slogging north on the M6 and M74. From the fill up in Hawes this morning the Super Ten made it all the way back to Glasgow without another fill, not bad for a 23 litre tank.

    I'd like to add my thanx to everyone involved in making this an excellent weekend again. As has already been said these things don't just happen so Big Up Yourselves.

    A huge thank you also to Paul for the brilliant ride out on Saturday and also to everyone elso on said ride for your patience with the talentless bimbler at the back.

    Happy days, happy memories, the sort that make the daily Shi'ite at work worth tolerating.

    Here's to next year, Inish'Allah.

    Paul's ride seemed to cause issues with 1200GS's.

    This one was very tired

    And if you will bolt a larder on the back of your bike probably best leave it empty

    Great event, organised by few and enjoyed by many so big from Beth&Chris. Also thanks to Brut33 who leant us his room at the George for 2 nights. See you at the next one.

    Throughly enjoy the Dent weekend (again) thanks to Micky and his team also Paul who provided a great and very entertaining ride out. The Bear should have been with us he could have learnt loads about crash sequences and bike recovery and not a buttered slice in sight. Hopefully see you all in 2017.

    Top work, Micky.

    I had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the whole weekend. I stayed warm and dry even through the heavier rain showers on Friday night and it was great to see the countryside up there. The guided rides were a total boon (thanks here to Fran and Tony)

    Giles and I got back to Kent around 5pm after a lovely drive through the Dales and then onto the A1M home.

    Thanks again

    I'll be back.
