Yeah Tramp what you doing, you're the experienced leader, I thought you were supposed to watch everyone else cock it up! ;)

Good news that you and the TA both survived. :)

Possibly Bob, we passed a few, whereabouts? Some were stopped looking down over the vale of the white horse, some more just behind the tanks. Me at the front with a big tanked 200 and paul at the back with a standard one. All ktms bar one gas gas. B)

About 7/8 bikes came by us when we were having a picnic (I mean break) near the nine mile river (north of Bulford), all KTM's except the lead bike.

We had two KTM's, one WR and me on the DR350, if it was you we passed you as you were having a break just after us.

Yep that was us. Good fun day. Shame most of the challenging lanes are now filled over. Bulford 7 still fun and finally signposted correctly. Just south of where we stopped.
