Went Sunday... liked it ... we got our money back in discounts on decent kit... but as it was the first time we have paid to get in instead of having staff passes, for several years, the 25 quid was a bit of a shock.

Overall one of the best years so far.

Actually one of the purchases a pair of half price Richa Everest over trousers was just the ticket for arriving warm and dry to work on Monday.

I'm off this morning, looking forward to a day of shiny bikes and kit.
I've decided I want a new leather jacket for next years biking so that's on my shopping list, maybe buy at show or try for fit then find on internet.
Then of course, carry some cash for impulse buys.

And to finish the day off with a couple of beers and a curry. (thumbs)

I went over on Thursday. Thought it was pretty decent.

Bought a book, renewed my ABR sub and realised I need to find £500 + costs to do an off road school. It looks cracking fun.
Boo :-p
