my lessons learnt..

1.) Sport touring bikes are not comfortable
2.) although they can cruise at fantastic speeds fully loaded..
3.) Camping in the rain is as fun as I remember.. ( and i feel like a right smug ******* as i wrapped all our clothes in bags and none got wet)
4.) Nickwax waterproofing spray works.. all the time
5.) You are all really lloverly people
6.) be more involved in next years AR so feel more a part of it..
7.) Help kitten get licence so we can take 2 bikes and increase our carbon footprint...
8.) you do not need to take much with you as you can always buy what you need where your going...
9.) my fuel tank is italian.. the first half lasts 100 miles.. the second half only 50... (go figure)
10.) I forgot how much I love adventuring and MUST do it more... right.. BMW GS1200 anyone?

No they DON'T sooooo SHUT IT YOU SLAAAAAAAAAAG!!

My lessons learnt...

1) Do not, under any circumstances camp next to/in the same field as Mr BlueFlame

2) Do invest in a good tent like we did so it REMAINS pitched at alll times!

3) Definitely attend AR09

4) Always carry camera with you for maximum evidence of drunken stupidity

5) Remember to pack things-to-cover-up-evidence-of-unwashed-hair just in case world disasters such as a lack of showering facilities should occur

6) Bring a torch, phone lights are just not good enough

Some bloke got out his 4x4 at a junction and confronted Messie i think it was about something, banged her bike and had a go at her, this is shortly before he realised there was about an other 50 bikes starting to form up behind him, then surprisingly got back in his big 4x4 sharpish. at there time there was only a few of us around so he probably though he was the big man.

We should have all just pulled up got off and between us lifted his car into a field!

Hmm, things i have learned

1) Sv's do fly at 110mph
2) When it starts spitting, put your waterproof trousers on (Goes for both me and Verna)
3) We either have too much food or not enough at the BBQ
4) The overall age of the org is younger than i thought
5) E.d is one of the unsung heros of the AR (If it wasnt for her we would have hada wet BBQ)
6) Im either shy or anti social, probably both! I never seem to speak to people at these events other than the ones i know.
7) YZF125's look pretty damn cool
8.) People actually TRAILER thier bikes to meets that only live half hour down the road
9) Scoobs wasnt there
10) I always take too much stuff!
11) That you are all a nice bunch of people and that in the words of Admin " Kevin (The late founder of the 'org') wouldnt believe that what he started as a hobby has grown into this, he would be amazed" And that i agree with 100%

You done him all proud.
