and sorry for getting so pi$$ed [/quote]
You were pi$$ed? No way, I never knew
Do you remember the pub on Saturday night?
Mind you, you weren't as bad as Hovis. I'm sure anyone still in the pub at that time will agree with me!!
Miss YC any chance of sending me that video of Hovis?

Video? There's no video of you in the pub on the stool as we made beer mat pyramids on your head!!
Must be a mistake.....my error

But I do have that video of when Drew rugby tackled you when you were trying to help save someone's tent

Oh and by the way, it was good to meet you in person

Well, what choice did I have Seriously though, I found the pace very comfortable - I only went in a bit hot on one corner, but pulled up the only peice of advice my dad has given me abut riding - push on the inside handlebar. Round we went!

I find maria settles the bike, specialy in the winds we experianced

Yea, what was with that guy? He looked quite confident though, he followed me and maria back from the petrol station at swanage, he didn't seem un-nerved at riding with loadsa oher faster bikes. DOnt worry quiff, I will be taking it easy. My dad just told me to keep riding the way I do....so 60 mph everywhere then Pete and I had a good chat at swanage, he has alot of experiance and wisdom and recommended upgrading my suspension, so when I get some I'll be doing that (even if my dad thinks 350 on a hagon shock is expensive for my bike...)




Gavin, sober yet?

Matt - I've got a lovely pic of the two of you but I havn't put them on the laptop yet. TBH I'm too knackered to find the right lead. I'll do it tomorrow if that's OK?
