Hi Alun

Myself and AndyH will not be able to attend, he can't get away from work and I can't get away from the wife...... :pinch: and one of my offspring paying an unnanounced visit :angry: this weekend. Hope to try and make the cold one on Exmoor later in the year.

Oh great - this issue with the bikes is taking longer than thought... despite being checked again by Pidcocks ( who missed the fact originally that the battery was shot despite being asked to change it as their test kit said it was okay despite having two damaged plates) the starting fault is still there on Jules' bike. I have been fitting a new rack( that should have been here a week ago but thanks to Parcelfarce it only arrived at lunchtime) using instructions in German... that do not make sense to a German speaker! And feel like crap after eating something dodgy last night... looks like it will be an early morning dash to the site - anyone able to give me a bell or PM me the numbers of anyone on the site? New phone ate a lot of numbers :(

Nice to see plenty of Adv bikes on the Fosse Way yesterday

Shame I was in the 4x4 :-(

Have a good one

Realy great Rally.
Superb off road.
We even had our own Staircase & Pipeline.
Pitty we couldn't do the trails around there a bit more than once a year. Needn't be a full rally, just a one nighter & a full day's riding.

Nice one Alun & thanks to all the helpers & a great bunch of ABR'ers.
Regadrs Brian.
Lightness is everything.

Lightness with Grunt is a Scratcher!
