    Well attended my first McBash and it was great to put faces to names from the forum.

    Thanks to Russ for his organisational skills which included the weather@tu*

    Had a good time, although getting back on the bike for the first time since coming off proved to be a bit of an endurance test, probably too much to soon for my hand injury.


    Highlights

    The massive grins on the faces of those that were on the roads of Scotland for the first time.

    Princess Higgin's smiley face when ever she saw a sheep, cow, bird, mountain, waterfall, grass, purple heather all the things you don't get in Essex

    Av8tor doing precise micro movements of a a finely engineered top fairing bracket with a very large crowbar:bow:

    Ian Robbos grin when he realised the the fine tuning above would allow him to ride his bike on Sunday and enter the streetfighter prize category@tu*

    To all who were there you know what went on, It was great fun to meet some new faces, & the old ones.

    Its all in the timing they say & we got the bullseye on Saturday when we rolled into Pitlochry only to meet Microlighter(Graham) riding in from the other end of town followed by markusfordus & John :yo:
    Graham we will get a ride out soon, Mark & John enjoy the rest of your trip especially Skye.

    What a rideout on Saturday shall we just say it was sporty.

    Russ & Janice What a weekend, what a McBASH & what weather

    Can only add our thanks to Russ and Jan for a fantastic weekend, only made better by having my new Bride with me, and even though she didn't enjoy the travelling too and from, she had a great time once there.

    It was great fun to meet some new faces, & the old ones.

    Agreed@tu*

    Its all in the timing they say & we got the bullseye on Saturday when we rolled into Pitlochry only to meet Microlighter(Graham) riding in from the other end of town followed by markusfordus & John

    So what is it worth to not mention that the BLACKbird that was two from the back leaving Fyvie, but arrived first at Aviemore, sort of first at Pitlochry(only a fuel stop allowing slower colours past and that we did a whole extra 25 miles around a loch before Pitlochry), and more amazing was we were first back, even though we got well and truly lost between Alford and Fyvie on the way home, causing no end of stops to reread the map, and a 20+mile ride going the wrong way altogether.
    Maybe it's just you slow red riders eh
    :wank:

    What a rideout on Saturday shall we just say it was sporty.

    Obviously in a slow red kind of sporty way (see above)8rfl@

    Hugh & Jules great wee run out after Alford hope you both enjoyed it ? we did

    Yep, nice one Kenny, bit slow in places though......h1d1ng2


    Clive Gina & Trig what can you say?? see you next year
    will sort some LEDs next week.

    LED's?, like the ones under your rack? Jules wants me to fit those too...

    ROBBO ROBBO ROBBO glad we got you winged Bird up & running for you to get a taste of whats up hear to play on & did you enjoy our magical mystery tour.

    ROBBO ROBBO ROBBO....Sigh..... did we get back ok?

    Oh & was the the Magician on Sunday Errr HOW THE F*#K did he do that & Gina he wants his $$$$$ back.

    @tu* Where did that golf ball come from? :dunno:

    But most of all to Russ & Janice guy you know what I think.

    DITTO, like I said in the car park Russ, keep the faith @tu* And pencil us in for next year, same weekend again I reckon.

    Hey Y'all

    Due to shite weather we decided to plough on all the way home yesterday (got in about 9pm) so woke up in our native Essexland this morning..... I am sulking due to having mountain/sheep/hay/heather withdrawl symptoms and Luke is....CLEANING HIS BIKE?!! OMG what an influence you lot are!!!!! fl4g71

    Russ (and Jan, althought she claimed she had nothing to do with it) - BIG LOVE XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    Brilliantly organised @tu* thank you for all the effort you must have put into sorting everything out. Our first North-of-the-border experience was absolutely fabulous.

    It was an honour to bring up the rear of so many lovely new people and meet the faces behind the names and we look forward to seeing yous all again soon :k

    Glad you guys enjoyed it and glad you all got home safely, I feel like someones mum waiting to hear everyone got home in one piece, must be an age thing !!

    It was also nice to see some new faces this year, some newer than others !
    :eek:

    But its good to know you thought that long journey was worth it. It certainly helps to hear when guys make the effort to get here that you enjoyed it.

    So, 2012 is now in my Diary anyway !!

    :-0)

    Oh and that comment you made to the Magician about 'once you go Black you never go back' was the quote of the weekend !!

    :eek:
