another lesson

Friday night, Do not attmept to use 'rear wheel drive' on a bike in a muddy field, it almost ended in 'epic fail', in front of people

Sunday morning, laden it up and give it your bloke to ride up even muddier field and warn him of issue. Do not attempt 'rear wheel drive' on Raptor with big tyres, its worse!!

Or of course move bike to hard standing before everyone else ploughs up the field

Lesson learnt.

Do not park your bike at the other end of a totally muddy field when your bike doesn't start and you are not going to be able to bump start it.

Hi guys, only just had time to get on t'interweb.
Firstly, sorry if I didn't get round to introducing myself/chatting to you....so many people, so little time. For those I did meet, I agree with everyone else that's posted.....what a fab bunch of misfits!!!

I'll be on a bike myself next year, although the dogs loved it, so who knows??

If you are wondering where the pics of Stretchie falling off the car are, I did that to him at the bottom of the field before the pics were taken. I wish I could say he just messes around like that in company but he doesn't.....he does it all the time....and I mean ALL THE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!

NO>>>>me and Stretchie did not get engaged.......yes he asked me and I did say yes, but it was nothing more than messing around. I'm not that desperate yet!

Right, off to catch up on other threads, but thanks all for a fantastic weekend and I can't wait for next year!

Cheryl xxx

Bringing "little Bear" out to play was a genius idea: thanks Teresa!
There's not quite enough Bear to go around. I may need to deputize some perverts next year
You're all great
I'm great
You're my best mate you are
I love you man!
