Don't forget the hotel has a pool too, so bring your swimming kit :D

Can't make the whole day tomorrow but I should be able to meet you all at the start and the run to the first tea/coffee stop. I'll be on a K1 with my son pillion. See you in the morning hopefully.

Now then

Dropped BoxerCup off at Allan Jefferies and picked S1000R courtesy bike up - fook me, its a rocket ship that handles with lots of toys as standard :wink:

If I can hit the brakes at Hereford I should manage to stop at Baskerville Hall Hotel :twisted:

See ya's in the bar :occasion5:

Well, an excellent weekend was had and thanks to Steve for organising the Baskerville Hall bash.
The hotel turned out to beat expectations, with good food, beer and scotch.
Good ride out on Saturday in 25 degrees and dry roads.
Usual competent riding by all with a couple of notable brain out overtakes - but were used to that now on a Boxertrix weekend.
Craic well up to standard and thanks for all the sympathy with me limping around depending on how long the painkillers were lasting.
Nice to meet the regulars and some new faces and give my little scrapyard challenge F800ST a good "bedding down".
Now I definately know it needs suspenders fixing at both ends and some more horses.
Anyone got a spare turbo or supercharger lying around?
Till the next one (can't make the Rievers Run) is there a Hawes weekend planned for later in the year?
Cheers all.

Great weekend as usual, thanks all, esp Steve for setting it up.

Good to see everyone and to meet some new folks. :D

A few pics to follow tomorrow.

What a cracking few days. Thanks for organising once again Mr P. - oh, and for sorting the Motorrad Sunshine Pack. I thought the hotel was spot on - notwithstanding my box room (sans gold-plated swan taps). Most defo in the servants' quarters. That'll learn me not to be so cheap next time :?. Gonna have to take Mrs R. to Baskerville Hall.

Enjoyed the run out yesterday (and especially the extra-curricular loop - nice one Popsky). Thanks to Paul (?) for sterling TEC duty - worked a treat for me (ahem [smilie=whistle.gif]). Gutted that I missed out on the extended ride - I hear Hereford's quite nice [smilie=sofa.gif].

Great to catch up with the Welsh Weekend regulars and to meet new folk. Special thanks to the SW Posse for making I laaaf a lot.

Cheers all :thumbright:
