A mate of mine has stopped in a local B+B for the last 2 years. Having said that he is 70 plus and has done all bar one Dragon's. He has nothing to prove to anyone.

Made up this little vid of my ride up from Bristol and a smidgeon of the rally. Difficult to get a feel of the camping pitches as they were quite separate.... Dedicated to my Dad who had a massive stroke on Sunday during my ride back down :(

Hope your dad gets better soon.
At one of the airfield Dragons, I met a guy who had his dads ashes in an urn, the dad had done a significant number of Dragons, so they got him 1 last ticket and got him badged.

Nice video Godspeed and I hope your Dad recovers well.

I rode up from Bristol but probably left a bit earlier than you, was that flood on the old Abergavenny road? if so, I rode straight into that (as it was still dark) and properly poo'd my pants.

We also encountered some snow, on the road and on the trails....

Yeh, a good little flood! That one was on the road to Abergavenny. I saw a truck storming through it and the wave it created was higher than me and the bike.....glad I wasn't there for that! :)

Treat every situation like a dog..

If you can't hump it or eat it, piss on it and walk away.

I'll have a word with the club. They'd be better off just selling the goodie bags on ebay rather than putting the rally on...
