Keith enjoyed the write up and the photos. Alistair thanks for taking the time to put the videos together. The trip was great, professionally organised and led. The company and the craic was excellent. Looking forward to doing it all again this year.
Thank you for the kind words Steve...if you've any photographs by all means ping them and I'll insert or you can insert yourself relative to what deviations you rode whist paralleling others?

Have a good week.

:D

The Suit:What would you consider to be your greatest weakness?

Me: Honesty.

The Suit: Honesty? I don't think honesty could be construed as a weakness.

Me: I don't give a f**k what you think.
