Lesson learned: Don't do technical twisties on so little sleep.

Thanks for a great weekend though! And see you all again next year!

Hope your ok, bit of a bum way to finish the weekend though

Twas indeed a bad note to end on... Shoulder hurts a bit - can't lift my arm above my head. Sore ankle and bruised hip. I have to change gear with a bolt I put through the broken gear lever, but I have tiny indicators now. No near-side mirror either.

I had an awesome w/end was great to meet new people and to catch with everyone.

Bear that ride home was outstanding, that was a great way to end the w/end.

Meant to post sooner, I moved house either side of the AR why is it never simple!

The Strays, including MBK are checking in. Stretchie has gone up to excort Bill (Banannaman) to Eds house to get his flight home in the morning, so he'll be coming home to a big cuddle and a warm bed. Nic and I are shattered and have just now been able to log on as we also came home at whatever time this afternoon it was to a power cut...so fridge emptied and a chinese takeaway

Wow, thanks all of you for making it such a good weekend
