Thanks to Devon John, Tredown, Big Tim and anyone else who helped organise this weekend. It really was excellent. Met lots of new faces and plenty of old ones!! ;)

Also many thanks to Rob Wills and Swiss Tony for leading the Green lane ride out. Although I suspect they wondered what was going on, started off with eight guys to lead and by about 1pm were down to two! Punctures and KTM clutch troubles causing people to drop out. Hope your clutch problem isn't to expensive to repair Steve.

Hope to see you all on other rallies in the future. :)

I hope everyone had a safe and dry ride home and made it home in one piece.

Thank you to all who came to our little gathering it was a good one. Thank you to all the people who couldn't make it and had the decency to let us know you couldn't make it, and to all the people who didn't turn up and didn't let us know despite numerous requests, we know who you are and your cards are marked.

On the plus side £345 was transferred to the Devon Air Ambulance charity by Rick this afternoon.

I would also like to thank our Hosts Martin and Christine for allowing us to spoil the peace and quiet of their little bit of Devon.

Hope you all have a great Christmas and New Year

See you at the next one

Big Tim

I just like to echo what's been said by others, thanks for organising this, such an amazing set up. I've been to a fair number of rallies over the years and this was superb. Thank you for all the hard work guys, take the rest of the day off ;)

Even the weather gave us something to talk about!

Thank you John, Tim, Big Tim, Rick & the campsite owners for a great weekend.
The organization & facilities you laid on were superb. (thumbs)
Weather was awfull (BBC got it wrong again) but everything else was so good it didn't matter.

Steve was pretty good as well. Even the mighty 990 wasn't man enough for his tender touches. :whistle:
Shame on all those who booked food & didn't turn up. It all still has to be paid for so I guess the air ambulance lost out.
55 promises & only 36 stalwarts showed.

Great crowd & great fun.
Better than telly.
Lets hope we get another one next year.
Lightness is everything.

Lightness with Grunt is a Scratcher!
