Thoughts go out and I hope you will all wish Diddy Dave all the best. He was travelling up with JK Clive when he had a bad off on the M6 at Carlisle and ended up writing his bike off and in Carlisle hospital with broken bones and severe road rash. Going to need a skin graft on his elbow and at least one operation on his arm. Get well soon mate.
Why? Why not?

Sorry to hear about the off. Get well soon. Seems to be a weekend of it - I witnessed a car-into-bike accident on the M62. Be careful everyone.
Cheers,

Leigh (LMG)

Just got back to Leeds. What a great Rally - Well done to the guys for organizing it. I can honestly say, the ride I had out with Craig was the best road I have ever gone down - and that includes the North coast of South Island (New Zealand) (though that was on a VFR)

I'll upload my pictures, and with a following wind, I might have some video too.

Hello to Graeme, Mike, Paul and Richard too - what a great tour of all the full restaurants you showed me in Ullapool - and the conversation was good fun too! Pity you forced me to have three pints - I was up in the night for a stroll to the facilities

Thoughts go to Dave, hope he makes as quick a recovery as possible.

A fantastic rally, only spoilt by missing diddy-Dave, spoke to him on Friday night and he seemed in good spirits, probably the morphene. I had to talk to him to get instructions on how to look after JK Clive (his best mate) when the Stella starts flowing. JK wasn't impressed when I wouldn't make his breakfast though!

Get well soon Diddy-Dave,
Love, Paul & Maria.....

Aha! So that's what he was doing lying beside that wooden fence - and I thought it was just because Tiger Riders don't sit on the fence!

Just back home to Aberdeen after a wet but enjoyable ride down to Ft Bill with Graham, Paul, other Mike and Dave.

Nice to meet everyone (hope you got back in time Richard...) and thanks to Steve, Craig and Austin and everyone else for making it happen.

Until the next time....

Cheers,

Mike

Sorry to hear that someone had an off on the way up Hope he's doing OK and is on the mend soon, and that everyone got back safe.

Had a great time and was very nice to meet you

Big thanks to whoever left me some cans in my tent when I got back (think it might have been RickSkye - if it was thanks mate - and sorry I didn't get to say goodbye - thought I'd be back in an hour or so and you'd still be around but ended up getting a bit lost and got back just before dark and you were gone - stumbled across some stunning roads in the process though).

I got back late last night eventually after a little bike trouble (looks like I might need a new back disk now).


As I was last leaving, the campsite guy gave me a couple of sidestand pucks that he'd found in the grass. One's a red MCN, the other a blue Highways Agency one. If anyone wants to claim them if you can PM me your address and I'll stick them in the post to you.


Can't believe the weather reports thismorning - looks like I should have stayed a few more days or tried to make it to camp in the lakes afterall - seems we've got the hottest week for this time of year ever ahead of us if the weather people are right. Off to hunt for somewhere to buy pads and a disk now to see if I can get away again for a bit of sunshine.
