Excellent forum, with a great balance of serious and fun and no stupid censorship. :o

I also joined in 2011 and remember that I had the first copy of the ABR magazine, so did the magazine first come out in 2011?

I joined in march 2011,i used to live this forum was always on it,never been on facebook,sadly facebook hasn't killed it for me it's the uncaring attitude of some people on here in the last few years that have done it for me,but i shall always be thankful of ABR because iv'e met some really good friends in ireland that i visit every year,so well done and thanks.

Think I joined late 2012

First blooding was The Dambuster Run in 2013 which was a hell of a trip. Still chuckle at the Irish lads' tent filling with water during the storm so they tipped the water out, carried it ten yards and carried on. Ace!

Many happy memories of new friends made and glorious scenery enjoyed with them.

Can't make the festival this year so have a ball you gang of beautiful nutters!

Just checked & I joined in 2011, I'm not a serial poster but although the site has had some interesting moments, thank you Alun & ABR crew for continuing to host it......I'd have ben tempted to pull the plug a few times :lol:

I hope to have a chat with a few of you at the rally in July

Ive been around from issue 2. Remember a mate showing me edition 1 in a pub one day. Since then Ive met a load of good mates from here. And had plenty of bike adventures along the way. Ace stuff....oh, and witnessed the birth of ABC!

Happy 10th birthday ABR!
