Sounds as if everyone's had a good time. The three guys that organised it put a lot of work in (or Andy tells me he did it all himself being hindered by the other two) Once again I've missed what looks like a great weekend. one day I'll get to an AR...

So Lance are you gonna put your name down for the GM again? might be the last one. I certainly ain't organising another one and I don't see many people stepping up bar yourself. God we can't even get people to put up a monthly run up here anymore.

Now don't be churlish. The reason I posted in an AR thread was because those who go to AR are the ones who most enjoy a weekend gathering, and it was just a friendly reminder while you're on the post AR come down feeling, sad and sorry it's over you know that there's another get together planned. Yes it is GM weekend, as I said before, that wasn't intentional, we had a non bike largely Soho thing on that weekend planned that got postponed so decided to nab it as we knew people had the weekend free. Whichever one you go to will be brilliant, we can send each other postcards, but could whoever sorted the weather out this weekend please do the same then, ta?

yes but in the winter we have to paint the sheep with dayglow paint.

Durness... 23hrs of light 1hr of dusk on summer equinox, 23hrs of dark 1hr of dusk on winter equinox.
