Welcome to RBotYear 2020!
All the winners from 2020 are in the poll to see who will take out the RBotYear title!

Such a great selection of wonderful rides to choose from and there is definitely something for everyone.
Thank you to everyone who has taken part throughout the year and thanks also to everyone who has supported, voted and joined in.
I am working on a small prize for the winner and hopefully that will be sorted before the end of the poll.

The usual rules apply in the poll will run for 5 days after which the winner will be announced and the results stay hidden until the finish. Once again thanks to all and the very best of luck to all the entries.

Jamie

I’m not so sure...

I can’t make my mind up between Allen’s International build, Sherlylocks carefull sympathetic restoration, Bagpuss’s glorious detail or Rolling Thunders stunner!

Hi all, I can't believe that, thanks to who ever voted for us, I saw it had been included but ! I have used it a couple of times last year, one was a 30/35 miler and it is a lovely ride, and once you get going with it, it has a fair piece of pace, stopping is the issue, it has to be planned. This does now mean I'll have to enter a couple of BOTM competitions this year, as I believe if you win it three times in a row, you can keep the trophy :D Thanks again, glad you have enjoyed it. Terry

Yes many congratulations to OldTel and the mighty BSA!
Both very worthy winners of the RBotYear virtual trophy.
Very well done!
There is hopefully a small token to go with the annual accolade.
Thanks to all who entered, voted and generally joined in the banter throughout the year, very much appreciated by all, so thanks again.

Jamie
