I been to a TD with 133 no matter if he is in a different group he is a nice guy to spend time with and gives sage advice, makes you feel comfortable in a paddock full of supports bikes.

thanks, yep, remember it well... your  first TD at oulton (cadwell on steroids) .absolutely peed down all day, you and steve mersey did really well. Have the vid somewhere.

anyway, im in on the sat 6th july. in case anyone else is up for it.

Ha - I remember that day well. It was very wet, Clunky lapped me I recall. I think I am overdue another one. Food for thought.

Clunky, I'm still riding. Not as much, as I cycle a lot instead.
Jack has a bike still but struggling to fit much riding in.
Rachelle has hung up her boots though she is starting to talk about another bike occasionally.

I hope to do more this year. I'm starting to take a bit more time off work and getting chance for the odd
 mid week adventure, so you may see me posting a bit more. Good to see a few old faces still about.  :002:
