What a great day,

Good to see some faces to put to the usernames, not sure I'll remember them tho (getting on abit),
shame more people didnt make the trip and bring along some more retrorides for the retrobikers and public alike to have a drool over, you'd have liked it guys/gals especially since you can sit outside the pub, order grub keep an eye on your bikes and talk about back in the day stuff.

Big thanks Corduroyboy for the lift & to well done to the organizers, I forgot to use the camera more than I did but heres some for y'all

Hats off (or is that hat on? :D ) to Tom for what I know was a massive effort behind the scenes to arrange such a great event.

Tom.....if you could also pass on thanks to the landlord and staff at the Vine for not only laying on a fab evening, but then also driving us back to the hotel at whatever hour it was on Sunday morning! :oops:

magic !

Great weekend all round :D Has anyone ever seen such an awesome collection of bikes in one place at the same time?, I doubt it very much, quality 8) Always good to meet the peeps in person we have contact with on here too.

Well done Tom and co. for sorting and promoting and I'm sure next year will be even bigger. For those who perhaps chose to see how this one went make sure you get to the next one or you will miss out again. Like a few have already said, it spurred me on to tweak a couple of bikes and get a project done from start to finish in 2 weeks which is great, so onto the next one!

Cheers, Ash.

The Mantis XCR (not sure who's it was ...sorry) really stood out, as did Swedes 'Harringdale' ...the attention to detail was superb and it was great to finally see it in the flesh having followed the build thread for what seems like years. :D
