w/e in Allenheads

As everyone has already said - great w/e and thenk you Jens for organizing it.
It was exhilarating and one that I shall not forget in a hurry
what I REALLY wanted to say was................thank you all SO MUCH for being a really GREAT bunch of guys (and girls) for being so good at cheering me up when the chips were down.

Especailly Bev who walked with me and kept chatting so that I was unable to.........

Lorenzo - you were a godsend - how I would have managed the trip back to the Inn after we were pushed out of Carlisle NHS trust I do not know - Brian, thank you so much for letting him borrow your car

It was a good w/e and Peter and I have definately decided that two up on his GS is NOT a good idea - off road through bogs


Its time that I learned to ride my Serrow but since I have had it I have been under the care of the NHS for one reason or another and now it has to wait a little longer!!!

The good thing is that I now have the rest of the week off (time to write the Christmas cards)

Once again, many many thanks to you all

Looking forward to next time

Sue

Smile next mini meet

Hi all
Great weekend!

So when is the next mini meet?

Anyone got any ideas on where and when?

Jens hows your ankle today? After you picked a fight with the wall, I think that you should maybe get Jake to go and rebuild the wall, as the wall had done nowt to you.
Jens you said that you would like to come to the rally next weekend, here is the number you need to give a call for tickets 01912643506
If you have any problems drop me a pm and I’ll see if I can help to get hold off a ticket for you,

It was certainly an eventful weekend!
My bike finally completed a record it seems proud of... it has now managed to break down on every continent its ever been on. Successfully breaking down in Middle East, Asia, S.E. Asia, Australia, numerous times in North America and now Europe - in my 20th year of ownership. To its credit it really did want to go on the back of the RAC truck, 100 miles from the site and tried to jump off whilst being loaded by the 'good ole boy' from the RAC - broken mirror,scratches etc.
But it was in good company, one bike not making it there at all, another's charging system giving up, mysterious flat tyres, lots of 'offs' and of course THE accident, coupled with Mr Faulty at the pub there was never a dull moment. When's the next one?

Why not!

Just over 1000m (1012m to be exact) round trip, but why not? I'll watch the thread with anticipation.......we're not going on any gentle offroading sections are we?

Roger.
