1) Make sure your 'waterproof' textiles are actually waterproof before deciding to go on a long ride wearing them
2) Only put on your dry clothes once everything wet has been removed
3) Remember that lots of beer is most definitely a solution to rain, and as such i should choose that option instead of bottling like a poof and going home to my dry and warm bed...no, seriously

Remember to zip your tent flap whilst the ensuing monsoon is on it's way, wet clothes, buggered phone, damp sleeping bag was the outcome of over indulgence on the mad apple front
Apart from that a bloody goofd time was had

Lessons I learnt:

1) me and maria can fit comfortably in our little tent.

2) my restricted engine is actually very capable and loves to rev quite hard. Shame I only really discovered this now, 5 days before derestriction

3) my dads advice of pushing on the inside handlebar if running wide works all the ruddy time. Although that wasnt so much as a lesson, more revision

4) I learnt that I learnt alot from bikesafe about road positioning, and I think that helped loads with keeping up.

5) I learnt that when there are dogs like Lupo and Mina, I actualy really love dogs. Its only the dogs that are scary and agressive and bit toooo playfull that put me off

6) I learnt that everyone is even more brilliant in the real world than they are on the internet forum world

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.
