Default Re: What I learned at AR12

Other things I learned:

Falling asleep after lunch is perfectly acceptable at my age, but perhaps I shouldn't do this on my husband's bike at 60mph.

Tents and sleeping bags grow once used. Not one of those tents or sleeping bags I brought will go back into the stuffa sack it came in.

AR is smelly. Everything I own, including my car and top box, stinks of beer, smoke and chips. And it's now permeated the house too.

Achilles debridement (taking it off and stitching it back on again) and that much walking, running about and riding do not mix. I can't walk today.

Men generally like cake, big lumps of grilled meat, motorcycles and boobies. (Apart from Ralph, who likes to stay at home on AR weekend and knit jumpers for small lost dogs while watching the Antiques Roadshow, he just can't handle the love like the rest of us.)

Us men are simple folk, with the addition of alcohol and fire (both of which were happily available) we're entertained practically forever

That fire bowl was a birthday present to Stuart, bought mostly to stop him interfering with the BBQ which ususally resulted in it going out. It's one of the best presents I've boght him and keeps the boys amused at every get together. But if he doesn't stop playing with the ipad he got for this year's birthday and do his housework chores he may find 2 of his birthday presents combining to form a melted plasticky mess.

What I've learnt is:
-SV650.org once again proved itself to be a great bunch of people
-Rictus once again surprised us at different locations. Is he Gordon Flash or something?
-Burgman 400 can stay in your mirrors much longer than I expected
-When one wears an orange bib it makes people get out of ones way (only had it for a moment but I liked it)
-BMW R1200GS is really comfy to ride (thanks to BBadger) but I'm not a bavarian convert yet
-Sleeping bags that fold into a tiny package don't keep you warm at night
-I can eat 4 sausage and bacon sandwiches for breakfast and still be hungry
-Hitting a cat's eye with sliders can be rather unpleasant
-Molesting Rictus for a coffee in the morning might require one to go and get some water but I don't mind (but I do need to invest in more make-camping-easier equipment)

and finally last but not least:
-I am looking forward to AR13

Thanks for a great time to everyone. Each end every person that made it there made it special.

Yes but I'd like that, so would keep quiet even longer!
