fabulous weekend all.
close to 1000 miles round trip and only about 200 on motorways.... I need better ear plugs and a fatter butt.
10 hour return trip on Sunday, but so be it, Gabi was good company for some of it.

Thanks Kev for sorting it all out, will i be the 2nd weekend in Sept next year?
Thanks to Steve and Dan for leading us out and sweeping us up when we took a wrong turn or 2.
thanks Bud and Youngun for scaring the sh1t out of me more than once on your stealth runs.
Good to have some new faces in the form of Kevs mates on their variety of steeds, good crack.
Bazza, get your Storm sorted, or other rubber on so you stop aquaplaning...

AND KEV, sorry we forgot your Birthday, would have baked a cake if we had remembered.....

Thanks again all. My bike is manky but is stored away till the weekend, where she will need some well deserved TLC.
Don't hassle me
I'll get there at some time

Sounds like you have improved the formula for op storm wales by adding the bunkhouse Kev.

I will make sure I don't double book the family holiday on the same dates next year

I already snore in only one room.
The bedroom.
Suggest you sleep in the lounge.
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.
