I tought it was important enough for this to have its own thread
and not to be lost in the General Chat ( who ever he is ? )


I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to Chris ( TeDeuM), for organising everything to do with the RTT 08.

From the T - shirts, to the ride outs, meals, the Guinness and even bringing along his friends.

I thought it was Brilliant, although it was four days for me it felt like a fortnight, and I can't thank you enough.

I am really impressed with Ireland and especialy the south west...... good.gif I will definately be back...... RTT 09 ?


Thank you Castlegregory for having us.


And what a great bunch of OLD tw@ts you all are aswell..... clapping.gif

I have never gone somewhere and enjoyed everyones company. The stories, the experiences with TDM's, abilities in riding, or just standing round looking at bikes, all good stuff I could do for hours.

Made a load of new Friends, can't wait to do it again.

Got quite emotional saying good bye........ ( to some. giveusahug.gif )

Cheers, Ivan

Yep, I second everything Ivan has said, Chris & Syra were fantastic hosts, even going as far as crashing to get the whole Carpe G2G crashing jinx out of the way early in the week, so the rest of us could enjoy ourselves rolleyes.gif For those that missed it, that part of Ireland is a fantastic place: Great roads (although a bit "challenging" at times), unbelievably beautiful scenery, friendly locals and considerate drivers.
Oh, and the Guinness does taste better over there!

A Great BIG thank you to the organisers (Chris & Syra) good.gif

thanks to all who made it across without the members it would be nothing unsure.gif

noteworthy mentions and heartfelt thanks to Spongey (dave) for getting me out the shit (literally, well you had to be there) clapping.gif drinks.gif

Dappers as normal for keeping me sane good.gif and being an all round good egg.

bondy for the speedy bits and for keeping me entertained, (when i was sulking) loved the spoon throw and the bench trampoline yeahyeahyeah.gif

Noel on his R1 for the hooning in the sweepers. yahoo.gif

niels / carol and the varadero pair (sorry my memory has gone) for shepherding us around good.gif

paddy for the funny gags delivered very well drinks.gif

pete kelly and marky mark and tedium for the excellent guitar riffs and tunes and carol (a lady of many talents for the singing)

i could go on & on as everyone without exception contributed to a great week (even though i got pissed off with punctures), the crack, cameradery, and general spirit was again amazing.

Great time, great scenery, great roads, great company.

everyone in castle gregory for the warm welcome

and all the irish drivers who are so keenly aware of bikers and giving us the room we deserved good.gif
