    Chris from Bristol was sporting an epic top lip; and a very cool C90; the camp site looked well organised; and there were loads of smiley faces. Looked like a good do.

    Friend of mine went. Invited me for this year's. I didn't go as I'd much rather travel/have a trackday/get stuck with the bike on some greenlanes (because I'm shit offroad, not because said greenlane was difficult ).
    Not my cup of tea to be honest. People have different tastes.
    I was under the impression that stuff like this (like Garmish) means being in a relatively closed compound being sold stuff left and right? I might be wrong?

    I was there volunteering with the Trf leading rideouts. Totally bombed out all 3 days hardly saw anything of the show until around lunch time on Sunday.

    Lots of people trying Greenlaning on big bikes for the first time.

    A very well organised show. I expect they will learn the security lessons for next year.

    It's definitely not a sales show...

    I'm led to believe though that one of the manufacturers was being "selective" on who got test rides unless the sales guys thought there was a sale to be had. Sad if that was the case but unsurprising.

    Which one, I rode the Tenere 700, the Yam WR450F and the 1260 Ducati Multi and didn't find that to be the case

    Couldn't get near Honda as they brought too few bikes, D'oh and I wanted to ride the CRF450L to compare against the WR450

    Turned up, camped, talked to people, looked at variety of bikes, drank beer, wandered around, went to Gaydon car museum and around, drank nice tea and coffee (never even unpacked my stove), bought meals, after a 3am leak couldn’t find the tent (next time will put a light on top), did I mention drank beer and talked to people.
    Altogether a great weekend.

    It was neither yam or ducati. Take a guess who'd be that arrogant.
