Cheers for letting the GSXRs join in today. As predicted putting the waterproofs on meant dry ride home for us.

Norrie are you home yet?

Yeah got home about an hour ago.
Was dry until after Manchester when had a couple of heavy showers but they only lasted for about 2 mins.
Stopped at a service station to put warmer clothes on further North and then just after Carlisle had some more rain and it was on and off bewtween there and Edinburgh although the roads were dry for my favourite stretch of A7. :twisted:

Had a really good weekend and it was well worth the 850 Miles. :o
Got 2250 Miles on my bike now and starting to get used to it.
Massive thanks to Nick(Pash) for putting me up and his misses for putting up with us talking about bikes all weekend. :worthy:
Nick proved that the English can't handle there drink which I already knew but he did take me to some very nice places in Bristol and I must say it's a really nice place.
Really enjoyed seeing all the Italian cars and bikes on Saturday then coffee by the water and then a run on the bikes to Riders.
Had a short stop on the way back to Nick's house as his belt broke on his S1.
Still it wasn't to bad as there was some lovely ladies to spot on there way to a good night out at the pub.
Visited an intresting pub on Saturday night and a very nice sausage restaurant.
Had a good run to the meet today and a spot of Lunch before heading up the road.
Only took 6 hours to get home which wasn't bad and the bike didn't miss a beat all weekend.
Chris if you had stayed you and Jane would have got back up the road dry as it only rained North of you.
It was good to see some fimilar faces and good to meet some new ones even though I wont remember your name next time. lOl

Looking forward to Glencoe now. :D

Oh well, you can't win them all. We're glad it was a successful meet with approx. 20 bikes there.

Norrie - 850 miles, respect is due :worthy:....

It was great to meet up with you all today, although we did have trouble finding the correct part of Kemble Airfield to meet you guys....!! lOl Lovely to see so many Buells, great to meet up with familiar faces, and also to meet some new ones, hello Coppersaucepipe and Edd! Thanks for making Ade feel welcome even though we arrived on a Yamaha FJR1300. He does understand my need to ride a Buell, honest!

Lunch was great in that pub....even though we must have been a daunting sight with all those bikes turning up at the same time!! They were very welcoming and accommodating. :yup:

Thanks to Pash for the warm welcome and interesting chat. Hope you get the mystic :maz: cure for the belt repair!

Jeez.......if only we could diversify as much as Bristol today........what a varied history.

Was I realy in the prescence of THE Jill Brown and failed to notice :shock:

We must get name tags!

OK so I was driving the only Mustang at the party, but I thought it a tad Anti- Welsh to feck off and hide in a pub.............bastids ;)

As for the the absence of their Royal CJ Ness........I had washed special, and put on a face and all :sad1:

Bum :( - sorry we missed you, Steve.

With hindsight perhaps we should have stayed and attended the Buell meet.

Not sure what happened to Banjo and Blackrag, Heavy night and maybe pishing rain early am may have changed their minds?


Guilty as charged - Carole and Debs (Blackrags better half) had originally planned to go up to Thorpe Park but were put off by the inclement weather so we thought it would be prudent to forgo the trip up to Kemble. :roll:

Yes it was good to meet everyone at Kemble, and a good cross section of Buell bikes. Shame I was late and missed Thorkil's insights into the exhibits. Still a nice relaxed atmosphere (something about old airfields) ;)

Thanks Pash :)

Well we are finally back from an excellent weekend (even though I didn't win a superbike to sell to Dave or have to suffer the grey cauliflour :roll: )

It was really great to meet sooooo many of you guys. Going to try to post the piccies. This is where it can all go horribly wrong. :shock:
