    Just for those of you who may not have noticed, if you go back to the photos Timpo has posted (camera work by the lovely Sarah), the second photo is worth a closer look. In the background is IanB on his 1150 (he is in the next photo emptying his boots of water) The subject of the photo is actually the watersplash. That isn't a u-boat, its a V-strom!

    I'm new'ish on the site but blimey what an introduction.........

    To

    Timpo - thanks for the speedy tyre work
    Rick A - thanks for taking a big chunk out of my Jack Daniels supply
    Snoopy - thanks for organising getting my bike out of the Forest and back home
    Possu - thanks for splattering my DRZ in rocks
    Forry - thanks for the laughs I got watching your GS fly round

    and to all the others I met who helped along the way, Timolgra and Dr Rich and Pete and loads of others, thanks for making my introduction to the world of rallies and UKGSers such a brilliant, brilliant weekend. I loved every minute of it, awesome scenery and people. I just can't believe it's legal to blast around forest tracks all weekend at speeds faster than we are allowed to go on the motorway. Everybody should try it.

    See you all next year, if not hopefully much before

    cheers

    Rich E and his punctured DRZ

    Timpo - methinks you were right about needing rim clamps

    The Strom guy, Steve(aitch) is a relatively new rider (this year I think...). He'll give anything a go, had a bit of a baptism on fire with me and GPS in Wales on road tyres but did brilliantly, more so than could be said of one of his hosts , then came to the Advrider rally, and then was enthused enough to come to this.

    Retired after lap 2 of 3 on the sunday, luckily as he had to ride home and the soak seemed to have done in his lights.

    Respect!

    You'll all be glad to know that the Strom survived to fight another day! Only damage from the imromptu bath was two blown bulbs, and a rather bruised ego! (The other 3 times I got through fine, as soon as a camera appears I go and dump it in the deepest puddle on the course!).

    Thanks to Ian for helping to push it out again.

    It was a toatlly fantastic weekend, a great atmoshpere, and more adrenelin per £ than anything I've done before.

    Dakar_Gal, sorry for riding past you on the easy bit, only to slow you up on the technical bits! Altough my technique has improved a lot in the last 72 hrs, there is still some way to go!

    Woohoo I got back at 3.40AM yesterday after Brian decided to do a bit of sleeping on the way back. Photo's will follow but here's my run down of the event.

    Friday night: arrived miserably cold and shivered all night. DRZ lost a brake caliper bolt and a few others on the way down.

    Saturday: loved it, met lots of new riders and people I'd seen before from a couple years back. Went quite slow compared to Sunday. Also found they didn't check the tyres so the ones I'd bought for the event and left at home would have been fine. Doing it on deathwings

    Later on lost it on some mud and snapped the gear lever but it was hanging on ok (so I thought..) and only made changing gear a little unreliable. Got into the swing of power sliding corners a bit and using brakes less and less.

    Between timed stage 1 & 2 approached corner in 4th ready to down-shift to 2nd and power slide. Then clutch lever failed completely and couldn't blip/downshift quick enough... both brakes locked ... oh shit... OH SHIT! ... and down the impeding bank I went! Forry stopped to take photos and five people helped to drag it out and back up the bank.

    Sunday learned the value of rim locks when I burst two front inner tubes. Rich blew one. Didn't come off at all I think and felt like I'd learned tons of stuff. Recorded top speed of 90.63mph on the GPS!

    In-between stages Forry overtook at an insane pace. His 1150 was out of control but he was keeping it upright which was a joy to watch. Forry you are a nutter!

    Pictures coming...

    No worries..It feels so light when I'm used to picking up the ADV.. It's a pity Karma wasn't playing by the rules as I ended up binning it..

    Excellent photos of what looks like to have been a great event, my hats off to all you brave lads and lassies.
    A question for you, I noticed from the photos that a lot of the bikes GSA, Dakars had their screens removed, is this for safety or some other reason?
    Forgive my ignorance
