Back home now, nasty wet grimy ride home. 175 miles in 3hrs 30mins so reasonable time for conditions. Glad I was on the Pan with its big fairing. Hope everyone got home ok without any probs.

Thanks to Mario for organising. Nice to see some of the usual faces and a few new ones.

Me and Boydy got back around 1.30ish. My feet were soaked right through. First thing was a long hot shower then a hot mug of tea.
Thanks Steve for organizing the meet up. Great weekend, from what I can remember, :-) Nice to meet up with old friends and make new ones. Hope all got home safely.

See you next time, Nick.

Hi guys,
It was a good weekend, shame about the weather, but enjoyed meeting some new friends. I look forward to going on more of meetings etc.
When I got home I thought I had problems, took of my gloves and had purple hands.... the dye had run 🙂
But I’m not buying gloves to ride in the rain, I’m a sunshine rider 😂

Hoorah! My camping and riding kit has finally dried out.
That weather certainly tested the camping gear and I did see quite a bit of discarded stuff in the campsite bin.

Nickoff filled half of the bin so I’m looking forward to seeing him next year using a top of the range tent and sleeping bag. Surely the Wendy house tent didn’t survive Nick?

That sleeping bag I chucked never was much good so it just had to go. Only unloaded the bike today and my top of the range tent is now on the washing line :lol:

theres is over 2000 hits on the event and only around 10 ABR members turned up ,,,,

thanks to the Harley Davidson riders club making up the majority of the numbers,

and riding the longest distance to get there ,,,,

thanks to Mario sorting it this year ,,,
