Thanks to all the guys who organised this .......and one more.

Thanks to Thor the thunder god for keeping those clouds under control for us all day.

couldda done with a bit more socialising time, but i'm sure half the people i didnt get to say hi to were probably avoiding me anyway.

Yep have to agree with what has already been said I did enjoy today very much (some of those roads have to be given a second look)
Thank you Mr Jelly thats a compliment coming from you

Some things I found funny today

1) how many waved to the little kid sitting on the wall waving to everyone go by with his dad
2) The old man counting all the bikes go by with his wife ( should have stopped and asked)
3) The complete prat who reversed out of his drive (which was slopped) onto the main road and could not see anything because of the 10ft high hedge in his garden

And to mark only you only you

Have to say a big thanks to all involved in organising it. I'm tired but very happy after a great days' ride. Great roads and great folks.

Thanks also to the bunch from the East Midlands who I just met and were great company on the journey there and back.

even the timing was perfect. Dry all day, then started to chuck it down half an hour after I put the bike in the garage.

I would like to thank everyone for the great ride. Some had doubts that the marker system would work with so many people on the ride, but it just goes to proove what a sensible bunch of people we are as, apart from one small glitch, it worked perfectly.

I tried to wash the red out of my hair with no success. Also can't dye it back to normal until I get back from work tomorrow, the boss is gonna freak


Thanks again to everyone. It was cool

I have to add my thanks as well.
Those people involved in organising, giving information or just generally keeping us together, I say a big thank you and if you remind me next time we're in a pub I will buy you all a pint (I'm counting on you all not doing it at the same time )
I know some of the people organising could have had more fun if they'd just been one of the crowd, but as we all know, somebody had to do it.

As for those humpback bridges, I got decent air under the tyres and under my **** the first time I went over on the Saturday (was overtaking a car at the time and might well have been going a bit quick) the second time Ceri and I both backed off from the group so we could have a good run at it with some power and bloody hell that was fun, but very scary. I kept the front wheel off the ground for all of about 20 feet after the back landed.

Possibly that kind of pint, yes.
Or maybe one of the several that I consumed that night and was still up at 7am the next morning; admittedly not feeling that great, though.
