Thank you for organising this. The views across the Plain on Saturday were exceptional.

I did not take many photos but a few are here.

Cheers for your help Dave. You ran away on Saturday before I could thank you. Same again next year.

Thanks for a great weekend Mike, looking forward to the next time, once i've fixed my bike. I must be getting better (or just more confident/stupid) to be riding hard enough to break a spoke and notice a flat rear.

Thanks to Sexisi and Robert for assistance with my tube change, my first out on the trail.
Don't stop me now, I'm having such a good time!!

Although I only came for the ride out on the Saturday I still had an amazing time! I could appreciate the planning that was involved in this rally with the venue and breakfast arrangement. B) B) Big thanks to Mike for organizing and to Dave (spannerfingers) for leading our ride. Sorry we couldn't hang around to thank you in person Mike, but we had to have a very spirited ride home to get back for 6:30ish
I only took 1 picture all day and that was of my wheel with a flat spot. But as Dave took a better picture of it I wont bother with mine. (thumbs)

Cheers to everybody who came. This year was a lot smaller than last year but i think we all had a good time.

I didn;t take any pics but i've got some good video of the route..no idea how to put it on here though.

Same again next year?

That's one hell of a ding Craig. Puts mine to shame. I do however have 3 or 4 of them.
What's the plan? Big hammer and a block of wood I've heard works but I've never had the balls to hit it that hard... :blink:

Mike,

Thanks for a great weekend.

Please pass on our thanks to all the staff at the Laverstock Sports and Social. We were first to arrive on Friday and were made very welcome. David opened the gates up for us then we were offered a freshly cooked brunch "No rush boys. Get yourself sorted and we'll sort you out"

I had a front end puncture on Friday then after replacing the tube and getting going again hit a very small "Vicar of Dibley" puddle and went over the bars at speed. Bit sore today but no significant damage to me or the DRZ.

After riding on Friday we had to walk a whole two minutes to get a beer. Then another two for a really very nice Chinese. Then back for some more beer. Damm that Estrella Damm.

One of the highlights of the event, a local lad leaping for joy having won one of the 27 prizes in the meat raffle. Superb!!!!

Although we didn't go out on an organised run on Saturday as we were waiting for a mate (who didn't turn up) we made use of the routes posted on here and caught you all up for lunch in Westbury. Great to see such a diverse pile of bikes (and blokes) parked up, chilling and chatting.

We had already decided that because the weather forecast was pants overnight and into Sunday, if it was dry when we got back to camp, we would pack up and bug out. Next time we'll hang around for another night; I missed the piss-taking and bull-shit bravado that needs to follow such an event.

Did it actually rain Saturday night, I had none at home ???
