After a cockup with Guys duties...we finally made it over to the rally ...gone 9pm...and in the van.....
We werent dissapointed tho cos we thoroughly enjoyed last nite...even if Marianne was a bit surreal...(we arrived too late for the bellydancing !) Powys Paul was on top form and it was great to enjoy a few beers with friends......
This morning I saw Dave P and V7 John and enjoyed a couple of hours banter in the sunshine....perfick....well done to Borders and Mid Wales..take a bow.....

Yes it was a brilliant weekend of motorcycles and silliness. I thoroughly enjoyed myself but, it's the only event where I've been relieved not to win a raffle prize! I even joined the ride out to Streffords (saw Ian's 750-engined V65TT) despite not being one for group rides - what I'll do for a free burger. Today when I got home I was still hoarse from all the chin-wagging.

Hopefully we can do it all again next year.

Really enjoyed the Red Kite rally.A good ride there and back in pleasant sunshine and a brilliant visit to the Kite feeding station.There were apparently around four hundred birds feeding whilst we were there.Not bad for a species nearing extinction not so long ago.Lots of Guzzis plus a Velo,a Vincent, Triumphs,Ducati and a Ural to add a little seasoning to the mix.Kate,Guy, V7 John and I had an impromptu Loop owners meeting this morning which was interesting(for us if not for anyone else).A thoroughly splendid sun drenched weekend.
