Hi all,

Looks like we won't make it to the meet. Customs delays mean I may get my bike on Friday afternoon, but more likely not till Monday. I am starting to get impatient, bike is on the docks but I cant get it.... grrrrr.

Have a great time at the pub.

A quick note,
It's Whitby Goth weekend.

This is bad if you want to pop into Whitby for a quick Fish and Chips as the place will be busy.
Good if you fancy a run down and soak up some of the atmosphere, before heading home.

May be of use to someone!

Regards, Phil

Excellent weekend! Not proud of the photos, so I won't post them. Sorry.

Enjoy Ripley. WishI could be there....no, not really!

Wish it was a month later!

Just a quickie to say thanks for arranging this meet, and the pretty good weather.
I had a great ride there and back to a part of the country I'd never been to before. A H.U. meeting was just the excuse I needed.
The was a bit tasty though.
Cheers Guys, see you again at Ripley.

Northern Mini Weekend

Can't email anyone as I have not enough posts.

Please email me so that I can send photographs, not that they are any good but they are a record.

Sandy.
