My unbiding memory is that Whiskey Dave bought a drink for Old plodder  :008: :008: :008:
Only joking, its the camaradarie umongst the forum, their generosity be that time, money or wisdom is the thing that does it for me and this year is no exception how people who dont know each other that well can get along is brilliant.

Experiences, walking into a curry hosue and naturally the first words out of my mouth is "what beers do you sell" "None" comes the reply "we don't have a license"  :5: :5: :5: :5: :5:
Go down the spar and buy a couple of carrier bags of beers gets that sorted.
Ruby on a beach, novel but not the first time
Loved the mountain pass to devils, not everyones cup of tea but when else was I going to see that scenery.
Meeting 133 BHP  at devils. and he reminds me it must be 10years since doing a track day with him jeez
Doing this on saturday afternoon, the A482 is a stunner, absolute rockin road virtually traffic free didn't even get pissed when a crotch rocket had me, bit rusty is my excuse

Then took Ruby for a dip in two rivers  you can see them between these two points

Then this back to Ryhader

https://www.google.com/maps/dir/52.1185506,-3.5777326/Rhayader/@52.1489536,-3.6259533,12.25z/data=!4m9!4m8!1m0!1m5!1m1!1s0x486f955b89eec84f:0x50d8b23d498d100!2m2!1d-3.510641!2d52.301537!3e0

Then landing in the middle of a conversation about the merits of sandpaper, marines and subs  :lostit: :lostit: :lostit:


Not so good

Rhayder, I think they have tourists off even though it was a busy weekend. I wouldn,t post it on any reviews but the bear B&B, £9 for breakfast ok but the room was nearly £60 notes per night, the Royal wanting Duarte to pay £20 to park on Friday eve when having a drink with us yet letting the locals park their 4x4 for nowt
£25 for the evening meal when we bring such a large group and we are all also supping.
I get we are captured audience and it is what it is, my choice to pay hence no bad reviews on line for them just a view I am sharing here

But overall, the best of it all, its really got my juices flowing for riding again, the route down, the saturday, the route back, without the NVM this year I doubt I would have got more then 300miles under my belt, I been for a quick blst already this week, taking the bike to work in a bit instead of the car, gonna get out at the WE, so once again, thanks to each and everyone of you for making it a special weekend.
