    Many thanks, kia ora

    Thank-you ALL for a great weekend. I was nervous at going alone, not knowing anyone (I just lurk on the forum), and very quickly felt welcome.

    Thank-you to the people who donated raffle prizes... the teddy bear has recovered from been squashed up in the bag during the ride home and I'll soon book my advance riding lesson.

    Tony, your patience following me during the ride-out was never-ending and was very assuring... thank you. My two learnings from the stunningly scenic ride are:
    Riding over a wet cattle grid on a bend whilst turning slightly isn't the smartest thing to do... it bites
    I cannot overtake a very vintage car on a steep narrow twisty incline... had to wait until it stalled, then eventually I managed a hill start and finally made progress

    It was great meeting everyone and look forward to catching up again next year.

    Thank you - New Zealand Māori
    kia ora (is pronounced kee-a o-ra) (Literally, this phrase means Be well)

    I was hoping to win the Damsin Gin in the raffle, but bloody Spike won it then buggered off to his tent to demolish it.

    Ha! I remember it well!

    I can't remember if it was the vodka or the gin I put the antifreeze in....

    Glad it was enjoyed.

    Call in on a Scotland tour and I may find more...I make it 15 bottles at a time in a dustbin!
