The A4 up to Newbury is wide but dull. After Newbury it perks up and is actually quite nice. You're going to be virtually riding past my house! I would offer a cuppa but may have to be out doing Mother's Day stuff, sorry!

That's fantastic news. Was looking at the registration stats yesterday, looks like an allowance has been made for 16 000 - that might have just been the way the graph was setup. 8-9 had some spares but 9-11 full up, afternoon looking quiet, but thats on arrivals, there'll be a buzz inside for a long time.

You are still going to pop down and see us at our spot next to the motorway? Might be able to pass on some last minute info (could be worth me hooking my phone up to the grapevine - umm)

I hope I haven't bullied you into joining in..

ready to go - meant to sort the scottoiler out and replace her old bolts with nice new ones but it was dark when i got back so i'll have to do the oiler in the morning and maybe leave the bolts.

We're going to leave in the morning not sure what time ... we're going peterborough - northampton way and down from there which i guess is not the way you're going Pete

Yes so did i - after all i'd seen about people not wanting us there to see them lined all along the route clapping and waving and then to get into WB town and see them all cheering us on was absolutely fantastic - can't describe it. (Mind you - i see all the Hardley Tractor boys were the ones on TV although i did see the custard and silver cat make an appearance lol)

Glad you were able to get yours started Chris - was a bit worried you'd be taking the alarm remote to bits again Laughing

Sorry about the crumbs in your bed Pete ....... oh and the jeans even tho they weren't my fault and next time i go anywhere i've decided i'm definately going to charge shortarses to sit on Ezz!

Anyway, we had a good trip back and a thoroughly good weekend green smile

Not when you are awake no What a Face

Sorry about the after burner, must have running the engine too rich again Embarassed That does mean though that I did get some sleep, I felt like I had been awake all night - guess you wish I had been.

Many thanks to you both for coming to our rescue after our booked and paid for accommodation suddenly wasn't after their aqua technical problem

Neil found a photo of himself taken by the photographer doing the pics on the site - i must've been hidden and he was in full view behind the pillock on the three wheeled big screened monstrosity that was belting out the dreary c&w music - that must've been what the long suffering look on his face was lol
