Talking lessons learned from AR08 - :D

well here are mine!

1) you really are a lovely bunch of coconuts
2) I want a dog! thanks to ll those ho brought their beautiful canine friends!
3) never play pool against an orger - although it might be worth losing for a dry hump - if you like that kind of thing!
4) don't pull your trousers up without looking around to look 4 people taking pictures
5) I want my license even more
6) waterproof gear is brilliant!
7) burgers taste brill in the rain
8 ) yeovil and surrounding areas are a lovely part of the world
9) gel seat or not - 5 hours on a ducati will mean a sore ****!
10) cheap tents can be waterproof - but the airbed was an investment that was well worth it!

so ok what were yours???...

1. Always do something to your hair to make you stand out in photos (Attention Wh0re? Me? Never!!)
2. Ignore all weather advice/TV reporters/websites.
3. Make sure the first timers do the rideout.
4. Don't get too pi55ed on the Friday night!! (Although I failed to remember this from last years experience!)
5. Get decent waterproofs
6. Have an amazing weekend with loads of fantastic people.

I'm sure there's more!!

How to get your bloke out of the tent in the morning??

Let the air out of the airbed


Never try to bungee stuff on your bike as your man starts up the Raptor...my ears are still ringing from having the exhaust right next to them!
