Well back home, bathed and fed - even washed the bike!! had a great weekend even with the odd bod of a Landlord - glad you fixed this one Jens cos you got to take all the Flak off him and also going on ride out without realising Brian E speaks with forked tongue ! hope the broken bikes got home ok, and everyone else got home without any further injuries occuring.(Who said you can ride a 1100gs 2 up across a bog?)
Anyway hope to see you all somewhere sometime again, PS anyone willing to e-mail me some of the photos that would be very nice. Leave a post here and I will send my email by private message thingy.

Brian E - cheers for the ride out - but still cant make the thing go downhill with the engine running, mind you a back brake would have helped should have ordered one the night before. (Howdon) Jake.

And they who sow the wind...

and I thought I was doing so well to ring my'chick'(just to keep the p.c.mob on their toes)last night to say that all was well and what fun I was having,finishing by letting her know that - as my phone had no signal - I was on Jens'phone,which is OK as we know Jens is a sound chap.However the lass I was talking to had superceded my last girlfriend who was called Jen.
Having just checked my messages I expect to reap the wirlwind.....
The executors of my estate will shortly be offering for sale one Africa Twin.....
AND WHAT A BELTING WEEKEND!!!!Thanks to all for the fun and Bev for a gorgeous and much needed pint last night!
Cheers,Lorenz

I'd like to mirror the above positive comments. A thoroughly superb weekend.

Lorenz: I'd like to be a fly on the wall while you try to talk your way out of your Jen/Jens misunderstanding.

See you guys around again soon,
ChrisB

Sue, hope your shoulder gets better soon.

Great time, thanks for organising it Jens.

Interesting comment about the landlord, glad to hear i was not the only one who thought he was like a grumpy Basil Fawlty.

Sincere apologies i didn't say bye on Sunday morning. I was last to leave the pub and thought the rest of our group had already left on a mission to hit the trails again so was in a hurry to catch them up. Turns out they were on the campsite and i shot off on my own.

Hi guys,

What a brill weekend, really enjoyed it. I feel I learned a huge amount this weekend about the highs (sitting on the 640) and the lows (falling off the 640!) of off road riding and I'm sure I'll be doing it again! They say everything comes in 3's - my own 640 broke down shortly after setting off Friday night, fell off Iain's 640 on Saturday and to round it all off when we got back on Sunday night, Iains sisters dog wee-ed in my helmet! Such is life!

Jens - thanks for organising weekend.
Brian - thanks for the trails, your time and encouragement.
Peter - big thanks for letting me ride your bike

Great company, great weekend, hope to see you all again.

Debz

at least it slowed you down enough to park in the fresh cow pat headlight first.

cheers!

Cracking weekend!
Thanks to Jens for organising it, and for the piccie.
also big thanks to Brian for slowing the group down enough for me to keep up
The thing that impressed me most over the weekend was the handling of the shoulder of Sue incident. she is one tough girl.

great bunch of people, look forward to seeing you all again. (including Basil Fawlty and his (lack of) black pudding.

Andy.

No, can't make it work. If I use the insert image function, am I still limited in size?

Enjoy the slideshow (slide icon) on the blog.
