Default Great memories and funny moments of the AR

- Dan and his supicious sending out of SV bits that never seem to arrive

- Having to bump start Si up a hill in front of traffic (thanks whoever stopped them and whoever helped me!)

- Finding a chip in my boot at the seaside *suspicious*

- TANKS! There are tanks on the left!!

- Coming down the hill with the castle in full view

- Pete and Lissa thundering past; best exhaust ever.

- Lunging, singing, dancing markers at every junction. Couldn't stop myself waving at them all each time!

- Nodding biker guy going past us hahaha

The markers were very funny, best marking ever

Watching Stu overtake on the white line and running over a dead bird and decapitating it, must check video for it.

Riding through all the villages and towns and seeing everyone watching with mouths wide open and waving at us. Was great and especially as it was a positive experience for them as well as us.

Apart from the whole event being superb......

The fact that my other half managed to MOT the Raptor on Friday morning, and Suzy spitting her dummy out, telling me herself she was too ill to travel, and myself getting the bottom lip out over taking the black SV instead

Me worrying over and over about Matt getting there with the knackered hip.

Rictus, keeping me going on MSN, as my head was battered with worry..I love Rictus to pieces, and I thought I was going to cry when I saw him on arrival. Such a huge big hug we had. Thanks to him, and much hugs, also to Soulkiss, Stewie, Alpinestarshero for also being there over the week previous, you all contributed to getting me to the AR, as on Thursday I almost didn't go

The whole AR was one big memory, we didn't do the rideout, but next year you will alll be deafened by the return of Im Indoors
