Home, safe and well, complete with the tools that fell off my bike on the ride. Thanks to Ollie for helping me get the route into my c**p Garmin.

Hello, been home about 40 minutes now.

Well that was interesting, we rode through 2 thunderstorms on the way done, a nice sized one somewhere north of Manchester and a proper torrential one in Birmingham, this last one was indeed quite epic!

However, we did lose a bike, Mike_84_650S'99's alarm packed up on the M6 Toll Road. Thankfully Sid Squid showed up and we wheeled Messie's bike out of the trailer and put his on. They should be on their slow way home now, we probably owe him several pints.

See you lot another time.
If you re-arrange the words above you might actually get a sentence that makes sense, I hope.

BAck home too and drying out tents, gloves and everything else that I packed for the weekend. Despite that the weekend was great, lovely to meet new people and catch up with old friends. To Dizzy and the team that organised the AR a big thank you for the time you dedicated in getting the AR together and making it happen.

Just in, after a slight change of plans as mentioned by Raf above. I rode home from the M6 Toll road instead of somewhere on the edge on London. Got soaked then dried out then got damp again but I'm home now.

Thanks to Dizzy and Orose for another great AR.

Now, where are we going next year?

Back home safe.

Dropped the bike at MacDonald's at Galashiels - very slow motion and pannier took the brunt of it so no real damage, though I don't remember the clutch lever going that far forward...

Then almost binned it completely back in Edinburgh when some idiot woman pulled out right in front of me.

But clean, warm, and about to eat so all happy.

Thanks to everyone involved, I had a great weekend.

Been back for a bit but had a shower a Strongbow and a sleep, so reporting in now. I can also report that Mac99 arrived at his Parents stop over before I got out of my tent in the morning.

Big thanks to all who made the weekend what it was, and who helped me through it.

Oh and I have Trench Foot.

May I add here, GG is awesome and I think I am in love with Stretchie...he rocks my world!

Mavi and SuzukiPaul, sorry for disappearing, then reappearing, then disappearing again

About 30s into the ride home my pinlock decided to do the complete opposite of its job. I had the visor open but the rain was stinging my had to pull over, and lob the insert. That process took about 16 hours becuase I was wet and rushing, then had trouble getting gloves on again.

Caught you up, but I was already soaking wet and cold and I wanted to get home ASAP, so I tossed legality and sensibility out of the window and just full throttled it.
