Grrrrrrr

I can't make it this time which I'm a bit gutted about. Bike and car playing up at the same time with MOT hassles

Next time...

Kencandig, there's an Edinburgh list on the HUBB communities section, get yourself on there and you'll hear about our pub meets and so forth. There was talk of another travelling mini meet some time ago, the Borders were mentioned.

I Wish I could have spent the night in the Pub.

The ride back home in the dark over fleet moss with the added wind...rain...and fog with a crap head light, turned out to be one of the scariest ride's of my Life

But having had a good day's trail riding with nice people made it all worthwhile.

Hope everyone enjoyed it and had a safe ride home

See you out there

Will post some Photo's later.


Camp Site














some of the Bike's









Basil and Nick..They will be coming up the rear all day ...........

Well, it was a windy ride back, and there was a fair coating of filth and mud but the XTZ and my gear is now washed and awaiting another outing

Thanks to everyone for being such super company, and especial thanks to the guys that lead and tailended the Saturday ride and looked after us all so well

here's a pic of Ingleborogh with the sun trying to get through, 1 minute after I took the pic, I was bombarded with stinging hailstones, some of which where bouncing around inside my helmet

Lucky we had planned a stop in Kettlewell to meet some of the others
Here it was noticed that one of the bike's had lost it's sump plug losing all it's oil.

Thankfully Bill Willkinson at the garage was on form and made a new plug in no time.



Nick Happy with the DR he just bought form Chris Bright.

After a stop in Masham for dinner.it was on to
The hill climb which looks easy...but it was very very slippy






























Basil had the sheep running for cover




All at the top







We then had to turn around and go back down

sorry but I hope the view was worth it .

We then took the back roads to the camp site.



Thanks to all who came on the ride out .it was a pleasure meeting new and old face's.

Hope to see you at the Summer meet in Ripley...if not before.

safe fun riding

Dazzer

What a superb weekend! Location, Company, Rideout, even the weather was reasonably kind to us, all absolutly great.

Thanks to all who must have put in a lot of effort to get all together and a special thanks to Dazzer for the reasonably easy but still spectacular off-road rideout and the great pics!

See you all at Ripley if not before !!!

Many thanks

Home after a cold ride back yesterday, Beej and I encountered sleet, serious side winds, and snow! But also some cake, which made things better.

Thanks to all for a great weekend, but especially to Debs for organising, Dazzer for a fantastic ride out, Basil for picking me up (lots!), and Neil for getting the TA down the last hill for me when I had the keys in my pocket...

Hope the V-Strom that passed us on a trailer on the M6 is now OK - next time can you get them to come on a bigger truck so we can hitch a lift!!!

Hope to see you all again soon!

Laura
