Of all the owners club forum meets to gatecrash, Im glad I picked this one  :wub:

 

Everyone really friendly, beers and bike talk. Doesnt get much better than that.

 

and Im glad you all kept your word, and didnt bite! 

 

Stunning washroom + cooking. Never expected anything that clean.

 

A credit to the owners Danny and Helen.

 

Many Thanks to all who organised it.

 

See you all at next years G2G unless I find another forum/club to jump ship to  :rotflmmfao:

Where's the pics guys ?  Did anyone manage to use my pre-paid bunk, or did it just go to waste ?

 

Truly sorry I didn't make it, just really bad timing on getting a double wammy infection. Got pics of my prescribed drugs if anyone is still doubting me.

Wudda been nice to meet Rich, after Sam had coaxed him into joining the G2G, and to meet up with familiar faces.

Thanks for the positive feedback chaps.
I'll be honest, given the poor turnout and the number of last minute cancellations I said to myself that I wasn't going to organise another g2g.
But given the response we'll give one more go next year shall we??

It's worth a shot Dave and see if we cant get more attendees for next year, when the forum was in it's prime people would travel as far up as Aviemore and across the pond to Ireland so come on chaps it's always nice to catch up with each other, if you dont fancy a ride on the day that's fine, the socialising is a big part of the fun, it would also be geat to see some of the more recent members coming along as well to swell the numbers...

That sounds great Jono

the Amoy road races are on at the end of the month, is that where you're going?
I was thinking about going there next year, and would love to know how you get on if so.
