Hi People, I'll be back in St Andrews in time but the bike won't arrive in the UK until the end of May I will have to use my 4 wheel box if it will start after sitting in the garage over the winter. To that end does anyone else without a bike between St 'A's and Cannich need a lift? Ride Safe.

Thanks Angus

Thanks for going easy on me with the ride out. I still have nightmares from the last trip at Cropton!! The journey for me will be close on 420 miles there on the Friday. This will be the furthest I have ever ridden in one day. (Lightweight I know) I wont know if I will be capable of getting back in the saddle on the Saturday morning. My joints are no longer what they used to be. Sadly years of lung and liver abuse have taken their toll although I have enjoyed every minute that I can remember!

Pub Grub

Hi folks - we have decided to stick with the usual pub grub rather than organise a buffet as we cant be sure of numbers it seems to be the safest bet. Only a few days to go ! - look forward to seeing you all at the weekend.

Unhappy

Hi Chizz,

Absolutely gutted... we checked our bank balance tonight and am afraid that we don't have enough pennies so will need to miss this one and save extra hard for the next! Really upset as last years was fab and was looking forward to catching up with the usual suspects and to meeting new HUBBERS!

Hope you all get good weather, we know you'll all have a ball!

See you all at the next one!

Beej n Chris

Cheers Angus

Hi. What time do you guys expect to be off for the ride on Saturday? Is 160 mile tank range enough or should I bring a fuel can? Thanks in advance. See you there!

We will both be there, arriving seperately but leaving together.
Is there anyone else travelling up from Aberdeen area on the Friday night.
I (Liz) wont be there until after work on the Saturday, but is making the sacrifice of starting at stupid o'clock (0500hrs) to get away that wee bit earlier.
Mike will possibly be up on the Friday evening but if not Saturday.
2 more for the buffet numbers.
We had hoped to bring along a couple of new recruits but new bikes have left them cash strapped.
C U all at the weekend.
Oh and please supply sunshine or failing that turn the rain off, I can cope with dry dull.

Sorry Chizz, car just failed it's MoT so my boozy weekend will have to be done locally, still if the boat doesn't sink between South Africa and here and if the bike passes it's MoT I'll have the bike for Ripley. Anyone passing through St Andrews over the next couple of months or so before I head for S. America can have floor space if I'm home. Ride safe.

Til next time folks

Big thanks to those who came to Cannich for the Mini Meet, and Kev and Rory who turned up for the ride out to Applecross and Shieldaig - a great run this year - the sun even came out! Hopefully Greenmanalishi will have some pics. See you at Ripley XRM

Numbers were well down on last year but the Craic was good,

All the best

Chizz (Bruce)
