    As was I, saw he was on but got stuck in the Gorm drinking beer and listening to nearly Quo (which I enjoyed cause they played all the classics loud enough and well enough for me - and beer helped).

    Had the shock of my life on Saturday when one of them waved back at me on the A9. Not one if the badass dudes with legs spread wider than a 10 bob tart but a nice old fella with wifie on the back.

    Aye, a few of them were out their minds. Against their code to wave at wrong sort of bikes

    I had a good time over the weekend.

    It's the first time I'd been to it and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who can get there, it was far better than I thought it would be. Lots of nice bikes depending on your taste, and more GSs than you could shake a shitty stick at. I spent a couple of nights mostly at the Cairngorm Hotel which seemed a decent place to be from my liking. I took a few pics of some of the GSs I seen at the event, there were loads more, but I got bored snapping them - if your were there, is your among the many pictured? The ride out was a sight to see, no idea how many bikes were in it, but it took 20 minuets to pass me on the main street, must have been 500+ bikes? Anyway, will probably go again next year, and if the weather is a bit better may even take the bike, but as I went home in 7hrs of rain I was glad I was in the car this time.

    I noticed there were a couple of GSA's parked in the Gorm over the weekend, also a few on the ride out on Saturday

    Thunder in the Glens

    three of us went and had a brilliant weekend. my (slightly ratty) 1100GS, one mate on a 1200GS and another on a 1971 moto guzzi. spent most of the time drinking and watching the bands at the cairngorm, mostly great except maybe the quo. highlight for us was Torrance on sat night at the outdoor show stage. campsite was full of midges and a bit boggy but after a few beers we didn't much care. will be going again.
