Great day out, nice to meet some of you guys and see some awesome bikes. Hats off to Mark and Paul for such a brilliantly organised event.

Apologies if we held anyone up, Mrs E_R took a tumble at the start on the ice and had a confidence knock (elPedro666 did a sterling job of avoiding her too :wink: ) so we hung back for the rest of the ride.

After initially not seeing eye to eye with the Saracen on her maiden off road voyage, we came to an agreement towards the end after it threw me off twice in comical spd stuck fashion (luckily no one saw either :lol: ) that I would stop slagging of her weight and we got on much better after that, could be won by her yet.
