Default the weather?

the one thing that spoilt the north/south was the weather IMO
not so much on the ride out, but coming home after it all, put a bit of a downer on it that & getting a flat tyre was more of a pi$$ off than having an off. and we were riding from 9 till 6 so by the time we got back and sorted it was a few pints in the pub......... then bed (looking foward to next year mind)

anywho, with the AE being more of a gathering than the ride out the weather will hold a big part of this , as if its crap it could spoil things a bit


so whats the forcast?

Direct from the met office...
UK Outlook for Tuesday 26 Jun 2007 to Thursday 5 Jul 2007:

Much of next week will be dominated by a cool north to northwesterly flow. Some dry and sunny intervals are expected in all areas but with an overall emphasis on rather cloudy skies, especially in the east. There will also be a scattering of showers and, for the first day or two, the showers may be heavy and prolonged in some eastern areas. Later they should become fewer and generally less heavy too, with longer drier intervals in between. It will be mostly rather cool or cool, although temperatures may approach near normal values in sunniest areas. The following week looks set to continue the rather unsettled cool type, with occasional rain, across the north, whilst further south there is the prospect of spell of generally more settled conditions.

Weather on the N/S was as good as could be expected. Friday Glorious Sun
Sat - some dry roads. Sun - started dry, dried up Then almost got sunburned waiting on Quiffs call that he'd located the elusive TimWilky.

Nothing like riding on wet roads to concemntrate the mind & Learn a required skill.

But agree , The AE in the wet, in tents would be more of a downer.

Good Luck! Shall be in the Med

But I wont be doing any of that... and if someone brings a awning/gazebo in their car, then who cares if it rains or not, you'd have a weather proof workshop in the middle of the field.

I for one will re-consider vehicle type if the forecast looks wet. Not much fun doing 600 miles in the rain to sit in a feild with no where to dry your stuff, then have a cold for 2 weeks afterwards. Been there done that.

Still, its going to be warm sunny and lovely
