Hope you are enjoying the weekend? Hope the weather stays dry tomorrow for your ride home. I couldn't make it as I had a fast track hospital appointment today and only just got home and got a night shift to do tonight. :(
Ride safe.

Well that's me home. Had a fantastic time with great company and will defo be there next year although I think I need to cut down on the alcohol intake as I didn't feel very well this morning. :sick: Sorry to rush off early this morning but I just wanted to get up the road. It was freezing until I got over to the M6. Done 600 Miles in total and Sophia performed beautifully all weekend. Really getting to like the Rap a lot better since I put decent tyres on her.

Wow did ya fly?? :revrev:

We got home at 3pm. Kitty behaved impeccably, if a bit weighted. Mark got a weird puncture, couldn't fix it at roadside so is enroute on a breakdown truck to our house. The zzr tyre is shagged. Just got home before the carcass is showing!!!

An absolute super weekend, as always with you guys. An absolute pleasure to spend the weekend with each and everyone of you. Here's to next year, and hopefully Richie will come back too , top bloke. The Wookie is looking forward to next year already, maybe we might see Dave the pirate again..... That fella was ace! And Lesley......think she most defo needs her own Raptor for when she comes back ;)


Wooo dizz is on a comedown :thumbsup:

Just next year, I will bring the shotgun, for those darn woodpigeons!

Got there and back on Saturday. Another great ride to a great day out. I reckon that we really got our money's worth with the flying displays. I thought that the Lanc and the Fortress were just going to do a couple of passes over the field and head home. Didn't realise that they were going to do a load of stunts.

As always, it was nice to check out a load of nice and interesting bikes, and meets lots of nice and interesting people. It has all the right ingredients for a top day out (though speaking of ingredients, I'm not altogether sure which bits of the 'cow' had made it into the beefburgers!).

Always really good to meet up with the people on here. I'm usually game to do it a bit more often if anybody wants to meet up for an impromptu beer or cuppa at any time. All being well, I'll take my tent and have an extra day down there next year.

We would like to thank everyone who attended Saturday's event. There was a mouth-watering selection of Italian motorcycles and your presence helped to make the event a success.

The event raised £500.00 for the Papworth Hospital Cystic Fibrosis Unit which looked after Emma. The total raised by this and various other UKBEG events since Emma passed away in April 2004 now stands at over £38,000.00.
