A great weekend!!
Well I only just got there in time for the rideout. Not been on the ride roads on a bike before, totally different and higher speeds to in a van that I usually use on those roads. Nearly lost it on a couple of corners but luckily didn`t.
In all the times I`ve been to the Aber bus station I`ve never seen so many bikes there it was a great sight. [Mind you Monday mornings is not biking time of the week]
The rideback was good with an unexpected [to me] stop at Chepstow. Good to see P3tchy have some fun with a Porsche and only got into 3rd gear. Damo got lost again and I think wanted to stop again by going into the Magor services instead of just doing a Uee on the roundabout. Easliey done.
Another promtu stop at the Gordaino services waiting for waiting for the lost to arrive only to find they were 2 stops ahead!!
The next stop was to visit TT`s resting place and in the middle of the silence with head down a very abt solo bike went screaming up the near dual carriageway.
At was for me great to finally get to the roundabout at Avonmouth having lived in the area and have had plenty of oppertunity to go before. At the roundabout the was a good lineup and burntout that must look good on video.
Then finally on the rat run back to the campsite. Where I finally got chance to put the tent up before going to the pub for tea and a pint or 2.
Even after buying Yellow 46 ticket I thought I had a chance of winning something in the raffle. Well I won a DVD not what I expected but Least I got something, but not the ticket. I must admit the where a couple of people the seemed to be collecting prizes all the time. LOL. That`s how it goes.
It was great too meet everyone old and new, what a great bunch of peeps we have here.
Thanks for Katch, Lorraine and Damo (Sour) and UNOME for organising a great weekend.
