Seconded.

Now knackered!
Very kind of you to say so, but I really didn't do anything, all the plans and arrangements were made by the others mentioned.

It was a giggle wasn't it? We'll do it again soon I hope. I'm definately looking forward to next years one, we'll have to see if we can get a hundred bikes next time
A special hello to Stewart from near Oxford, (who didn't previously use the site but said he'll check us out now), for showing up on our old yellow curvy SVS, fair brings a tear to the eye to see an old friend.

And perhaps we ought to warn the Little Chef, (or wherever), staff that we're coming next time, I thanked some of the staff for their most appreciated service, (by me anyway), and they said no problem come back anytime Gluttons for punishment.

And perhaps next time they'll have some maple syrup for the pancakes and some coffee!!!

Had a great couple of days, kinda enjoyed the camping but next time I'll have a roll-up foam thingy to lie on as the ground really wasn't body-friendly. Tent was excellent, even if my nose was touching the roof for most of the night.

Was pleased to have met so many new people even if I can't remember who was who, and forgive me if I didn't say hello to anyone, I'll try harder next time.

Enjoyed the route, some great scenary and villages, so a big up to Steve and Leigh for planning the route so well. The first stage was a trifle slow but the second stage flowed very nicely and was great fun. The sound of alll those V-twins throbbing in unison was I think not only appreciated by us but also by a lot of spectators as we rode very considerately (I think) through the villages. And yes I did wave to the little kids .

One small little story that might bring a smile to your face:

As I was back-marker for the second stint I waited at the Tesco exit till everyone was gone when there were two straggling SVs not with the main group so I waited and waved them on quickly saying "oi get a move on". Followed them out into the queue of traffic and patiently waited behind them to once again have to wave them forward only for them to stick behind the car in front, so I moved up waved them on again even more impatiently and said "okay let's go lads", when they turned to me and shouted "er, we're not with the ride we've never seen you lot before". Oh well almost had another two recruits .

I'm looking forward to next year's ride-out already which I can inform you will be in Royston, north Herts.

You new to this camping arnt you, I can tell!. Get an orange coloured thermarest, short length is fine. I couldnt cope with a foam mat, used an inflatable mattress then took a chance on a thermarest when I started camping on the bike. Excellent.

a few people have said they saw him sitting in the back of the police car, not looking too bad, so presumable he must be ok, since he hadn't been whisked away in an ambulance.

Yes I admit to being new to it, so okay I'll check out the thermavest but they seem mighty pricey compared to my tent which at 14.99 I just managed to get past Mrs jonboy's budget.

If anyone's interested, these blow-up-doll-mattress roll-up thingies are here:

Let me tell you, Royston and Royston Vasey have a disturbing amount of things in common. But it's okay if you're local .
