Hi All,
This is the first Welsh Weekend Alan and I have missed since I organised the first one which must be 13 or 14 yrs ago, Just to much going on in our lives at the moment but hope you all have a cracking weekend (know you will) Ride safe and enjoy.

Peter & Alan.

Never got the promised PM from a certain member who was going to turn up and let me know which day he would appear!!!

Evening Peter & Alan
Cracking days ride up for all the South West Posse, very nice hotel and a good evening meal, you are both missed even though the soft top has been around more than the bike the last couple of years.
It will be interesting to see a new face lol.
Steve has promised a good ride out tomorrow.
Take care and hope we can catch up soon
Phil.

Got home just before 6; 900 miles between Friday and Sunday, bike definitely run in now :D .
I want to add my thanks to Steve for organising everything, I thought the hotel tried really hard for us. Great to meet some new faces and remeet old ones of course.

Peter and Alan, you may not have been there but you were not forgotten, you are both very much what Boxertrix is about.

Thanks also to Chris and Amanda for making the ride home more tolerable. The last bit on the A7 almost made up for the grind up the M6.

Cheers

Very true, thank you Steve for sorting the hotel, and to every one for a great weekend.

Many thanks to Steve (Boxered) re the 'Epic view' and the road just drops off tip.... It really does :shock:

Will post some pics later after I've got over the stunning views and sunny weather of North Wales

Mega stint that Ian. If I had been more organised we could have made the dreaded M6 more tolerable on the way down.

Thanks to Steve for the organising and running,Thanks to all who made the weekend a jolly sociable affair.

Regards and best wishes to absent friends namely Alan and Geoff.

Just want to add our thanks for a great weekend to Steve for all the time and effort he has put in to allow us to have a great weekend, not to mention saving me from embarrassment outside the Hotel on Friday :oops: , also to Paul for making sure we didn't get left behind anywhere. Hope everyone arrived home safe and sound and hope to catch up again soon.

What a great way to spend a weekend! Thanks for sorting it out Steve :thumbright: ...and thank you for throwing in the Motorrad Weather Pack. The Lion Hotel was good (though they didn't seem too keen on 'lock ins' for residents :D ). The ride out was excellent as always. Only 22 bikes this year (well, er, 20 after Steve's 12S disgraced itself :D ) but it was still great. Thank you Paul for your stirling TEC duties. Enjoyed catching up with folk not seen since last year and meeting new ones. Geoff can be satisfied that Steve (silver Bandit) made the most of his place and thoroughly enjoyed himself (good to meet you Steve).

This was the first Boxertrix do I've been to which didn't include Reg, Gwen, Peter and Alan, which was a shame. Fingers crossed that the topless car brigade will be back soon.

Enjoyable ride home with the SW posse; well, to the M4/M5 interchange anyway. Al and Sue - that Usk road isn't bad is it? Apart from the last few miles emasculated by double whites and blanket 40mph limit :(

I covered 720 miles all in. Home at 7:30 last night; tired and happy...and with a bike that didn't look like it'd been through a ploughed field for a change!
