Missed it

Guys

I really enjoyed last years meet and was looking forward to today, ( It would have been only my second ride this year ) bike prepped taxed, fresh insurance and full tank, wife took day off work to look after kids....and then 3 days of really bad sore throat turned into really bad cold and a head like cotton wool and dizzy spells. Sense told me it was too risky for bike riding so I spent all day feeling very sorry for myself laid out on the settee.

It makes me wonder if someone is trying to tell me something and maybe after 10 years she should go to a better home than I can give her.

Glad you all had a good time and thanks for posting the photo's.

Ride safe

Phil

Just want to add my thanks to all who took the time to sort the day out, I really enjoyed the chance to chat with fellow SL owners and look forward to hopefully doing it all again next year

Cheers

Ian

Wonderful day out gentlemen, thank you all for turning out. Special award goes to our master of ceremonies, RobB, for organising it all with almost military precision. Thanks to Paul and Ian for escorting me up along the smashing Fosse Way, a road i've not been down before but one which I shall now frequent! Nice trundle back in the company of Rob too, hope any more rain didn't get ya mate! I've tried to upload some pics but it won't let me, says my image sizes are too big, whatever that means. If anyone wants to re-size them let me know i'll email them and we can get them up.

Hi Rob,
I couldn't make the meet as i was still at the 'TT'.
Yes i think you should do this event again, but please try to avoid the Island dates, as i've already booked for next year! AND I'D BE VERY DISSAPOINTED TO MISS YOUR DO AGAIN.

Steve

Guilty

Story is I wanted a black one, to be different (there's always one eh...), managed to source another set of bodywork to paint, my original mint red panels are residing in the loft! Does suit the bike well, I was so pleased when I bolted them all on.

As I said in my last post, I have some more good pics of the day but can't seem able to post them up, the server is telling me they're too big and need re-sizing. I could email them to you Frank and you could post them?
