ToL Check-in

Post  YZFJohn on Sat Aug 30 2014, 20:23

Just got back home. Great days riding again as usual. Well done Chris, Pete and those that helped them for top planning. Coffee stops and lunch stop were very good.

Have a good evening to those that have stopped over tonight.

Took the A52 on the way back and did the Corby Glen road again. Was enjoying it until the rain started.

Hi all just checking in home safe despite hitting roadworks on the M62 and narrowly avoiding a dead fox and a rabbit, satnav forced me down the high street one more time, (shame). Thanks to Chris & Pete for organising everything (and special thanks to Pete for not stripping my bike) cheers to Tel for keeping me awake snoring and big shout out to the ice bucket massive, Ross, Dave H and Kermitcat, what a laugh!!

Ewan and I arrived home at 12.25 and Rob has just got home after riding with Rosco and Dave for a bit on the way back.

It has been a brilliant weekend as always and we thoroughly enjoyed catching up with everyone. Thanks to Chris and Pete for organising the weekend and many thanks to our camping guests for the great company and for helping us pack away this morning.

Looking forward to seeing the picture evidence from the weekend and to catching up with people again at the next ride out.

Linz, Rob and Ewan

Got home about 1:30 after a great weekend (again). I set my satnav to "winding roads" and I am pretty sure I saw parts of Lincolnshire that have yet to be discovered. Was fun though.

I can also report that the only Thundercat on the Thundercat rideout didn't miss a beat all weekend.

Cheers Chris for another great ToL, and to all participants for the banter and the memories (although I saw things I wish I could unsee).

Hi All,
Back home after a quick rideout The High Street and a cuppa at Willingham Woods. Unfortunately we lost one of the Manchester Massive on the way. So apologies for that!
Losing, or getting lost, was the biggest problem we had, if you ignore the mobile speed camera, newly gritted roads, and one or two technical issues.... was that all?
Thanks to everyone who attended. Big thanks to the venues especially The Village Limits, who did us proud and put up with our antics in the evening. I'll leave others to elaborate.
It was a cracking weekend.
Thanks everyone. If you're up for it next year..... :-)
Cheers,
Chris

Big thanks to Chris & Pete for another cracker, I think the evening entertainment was maybe the best yet?
Had to make a pit stop for oil on the way home which wasn't too surprising given the stick the old girl was given over the last three days, got a few minor issues to iron out with her but all in all I was very pleased how the weekend went.
Cheers to every single one of you!

Post  Rosco on Sun Aug 31 2014, 23:33

What a great weekend.
Very memorable for lots of good reasons and a few not so good ones.
10/10 for organising Chris / Mechy and the team.
Our extra rideout after the marker system broke down was still good. Dave managed to temporarily waterproof his speedo on the rear hub giving him wild speed....pictures to follow.
Thanks to everyone for making it a great weekend.

Thanks to to Rob & Linz for hosting the Northererns in the biggest bestest tent I've ever seen.  And finally the star of the show again was young Ewan.  His Big Ed impression is legendary.

Cheers

Sorry for the late check-in Embarassed  I got home safe at about 10:30am Sunday.

I had a great weekend. Thanks to Chris and everyone for welcoming me back to the fold after a long absence. I'm not up to joining you all on the ride yet though.

I've over extended myself a smidge, and have been paying the price since, but it was really great to get away for a bit. I was beginning to get cabin fever.

See you all again, ride safe
