Good weather, good ride down, good bikes, great people!

Mind you, it nearly didn't happen. Second panic of the week was when I went into the garage and turned the key and the battery died on me. Some frantic action then followed as I tried to get my wife's car near enough to the bike to use jump leads - which promply fell apart. Grrr.

Anyway, got it started and off I went. Wish I could have got down the night before to get better aquainted with fellow enthusiasts but nice to talk with people that I did do. Really pleased to meet Shebee and Snap especially.

Pictures to follow (soon I hope).

What a great weekend, weather was just how it should be :D just don't tell my son what I wore to ride the bike round, I'm always going on about wearing the right gear!

Arrived home last night after a bit of a detour via the Humber and was absolutely knackered - fantastic :happyhappy:

So anyone up for hunting out the wackiest landlords in the UK?
so many roads to travel - why does work get in the way?

Oh dear :lol:
I was just recommending the campsite to some folks.

If anyone cares to check out the campsite page, lastest photos
you'll find that we've been re-classified as 'Bluell (yes bluell) enthusiasts club'

What a cracking chillout weekend that was! :thumbsup:

It's a shame more of you peeps didn't stay, the campsite was great, and we had some laughs and very good cheap food in the pub.

Really glad to have finally met more of you face to face, and it was better still that a few new RapChap members came to say hello.

It'll be a tragedy if we don't do it again :naughty: :mrgreen:

Great :photo: BTW guys

Oh dear :doh:

Nice photo of us waving though!

Which reminds me, I promised I'd email her a copy of one of mine, so maybe I'll hint a little eh :P

nearly back to sub-normal, after going via via and landing home at about 11,
(there's a reason I don't do night riding, it's cos I'm rubbish at it, so apologies to all the traffic on the M1 A43 A34 A303 for holding them up and the chap at the nearly closed fuel stop for barging into his shop complete in lid with the keys to his front door in my hand :shock: )

Thank you all for being such a brill bunch of loonies to spend a weekend with :mrgreen:

Julie's 'bluell' continues the magic that the Cagiva Raptor (in all guises) is the best bike that nobody ever heard of :tada:
