A HUGE thanks to Chris and Syra for organising and entertaining us. This was a memorable RTT and I for one will be back - it was 31 years ago I was last over west on a bike!

There's been so much said in several threads but just to point out that Chris did it all during the week as a self employed person - all graft and no income!

Thanks again............... drinks.gif

Right, more photos. If anyone's really bored my whole collection are here...
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4
Part 5

However here's a few (ok, quite a lot) of my favorites

Mark (Hartsideman) really likes his cake


Minty's taller than you think


The view from the top of Connor pass


Marquee Marks garage


I think Dandy and Stu need to do some explaining


Big Dave and Dad


Paddy900 and myself take a quick photo stop on the moon


Caption competition?


Devolution of the species (Catsbum's XTZ, my Mk1, Danceswithmopeds Mk2, Hutch's TRX and Big Dave's 900)


Catsbum, Hutch and myself stopped so many times to take photos on the road to Mols Gap that Marky Mark came back to look for us, but for Bondy, Tony and others, this is what the bits that weren't tarmac looked like







MarkyMark, TeDiuM+Syra, and Hutch in the Black Valley



the Eccles memorial photo


The Healey Pass





Big Dave is clearly impressed by Hutch's drinking skills


Tony, Dad (TeDiuM) and Peter Kelly on the Ring of Kerry


Hutch suffering from damp issues


Dapleb starts on the beer


Insert your own gag about 900 riders


Dappers is still going on the beer


Bondy may have had one or two by this point as well


How does Dapleb fit in that tent?


Calendar shoot on Connor Pass








Connor pass Western side


Connor pass Eastern side


The end of the road





Dave (Spongey) and Chris (TeDium) might be closet 900 riders


Tony's died and gone to heaven


Another caption competition?


Do we wake him or leave him on the ferry back to Rosslare?

there were several people in CArpe shirts when I arrived on the Saturday night but I guess most of them have higher hygene standards than Matlock and didn't wear them all week tongue.gif

2 of us managed German TDM forum T-shirts, and I think most of us now own at least one of the RTT shirts.
