Darren, you need to take me off the list(it's a 250 but noisey), making another place.
Pumpy, do you really think 4 months in South America can prepare you for a weekend in Yorkshire?
Have a great time.

Oh, I've been there before a couple of times - even on my GS (not making this mistake again... )

But you're right: nothing can really prepare you for a weekend in Yorkshire. Shame that you can't make it, Oothef...
