Convivial and tame Twizzler (like a Two Ronnies Christmas Special), enlivened by a superb turnout of machines and barmy riders. Sadly, the lack of local knowledge had us follow the people's mongrel along with all the new bike owners and luvved up couples in the morning session, although the ice patches kept everyone on there toes.

A break for pies and seasonal giftage (donated by Richard - ta muchly!) then we were of again, this time erratically lead by Edwards whose self-acclaimed sense of direction at least drove us into unchartered territories.

All in all a good end and start to the 2010 season - which, in case you were in any doubt, is all about riding retro, not coveting it...

Well I certainly hope it's new snow, don't want adulterated stuff with Panaracer tracks from Dalby spoiling its 'first person in the world' feel. :shock:

Caption to read: The Buffalo Boys look on in disbelief as Mr Edwards disappears uphill yet again, on his own.

Yeah, it was a really good meet! Thanks to everyone.
Although it took 2.5 hours to get home on the M6!

I only seem to have a couple of pictures, which is 1 of my bike and 2 of a double rainbow on the way home.

I will try and make it next year!
