early doors start on the satuday, run ended up a little longer than expected,we also had an issue with one of the bikes, one of those fancy KTM things had a leaky rad but we got that sorted

then of out on the run. great roads and a jolly day spent by all chasing James on the mighty Husky 701. thoes big huskies can boogie.

and at the first chance of a bike breaking down,the VTR vultures move in to pick the bones off it

What snoring.?
I didn't hear any snoring at all.....

That was a classic, it'll be hard to beat that next year but let's give it a go.

A heartfelt thanks to all who participated and made it happen.

Just one bolt falling out of the 2 all weekend,, so that'll be replaced with a titanium one and lockwired; every little helps!
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.

Absolutely fantastic? Loved every minute! Even that shocking rain on Friday was a pretty cool ride.

No idea how your beating them reads next year but based in Newcastle and being able to jump across the border was fantastic.

Had an amazing time. Great to see so many faces from last year and new ones.

Hard to beat it next year but I'm sure there are already plans afoot... Might base ourselves out towards the west?
