Great weekend, big up to John and all the other folk that made it happen.
Got back at bang on 3.00 so made good time. Even saw a bit more Devon scenery as part of the A361 was closed so followed the diversion signs down some great riding roads.
Roll on Malvern B)

Just to say many thanks to John and crew for setting up the communal area and getting food to out mouths!
The beer went down well and there was plenty of it. Excellent food and great to meet persons down South that I wouldn't ordinarily meet.
Great venue, absolutely ideal for the sort of crowd turning up. I camped but then I'm a daft Yorkshireman!
600 mile return journey, definately worth it and those present raised good money for the Air Ambulance.
We had a whip around to make sure that John was not out of pocket as he had anticipated more going.
I will definately attend more of the ABR meets.

Again a big thanks to John AND helpers.

PS I would have stayed to help clear up but I neede to get on the road pretty sharpish after brekkie. Took about 6.5 hours to get home (plus stops)

Fantastic weekend was had by all, Big John was a STAR as usual, thanks to all those that helped , but especially all those that made the effort to come and join in, there were some big mileages involved.
The amount raised exceeded expectations at £ 814. everyone was very generous, if the didn't give up their money willingly, we shamed them into it !!
Those that went on the road run came back with a smile on thier faces having ended op in Minehead.
The offroaders were offered an option of a technical day out, or a more sedate one, I chose the latter, I take my hat off to you boys that off road a 990 KTM, the 690 is big enough for me.
looking forward to the next ABR event
Tim
