Hey folks, as you're going to be in our "back yard" it would be rude not pop along and say hello. :)
Gail & I won't be staying away from home but could meet-up Friday/ Saturday and tag along for the ride [smilie=biker.gif]
Will keep an eye on this thread and arrange to meet somewhere; we're about 1-hour from Clattering Brig and can be in Dufftown in under 2-hours :bounce:

My wife broke her wrist quite badly a couple of weeks ago and I wasn't sure if would still be able to go.

The good news is I can escape for a couple of days as a pal of hers will stay and help out. :D

I've now also booked in the Arden on Saturday night so count me in for the meal.

See you all on Friday.

Really looking forward to this now, been out on the S this weekend just to get used to it again (not ridden it for the best part of 2yrs) Hated it on Fri--to tense and far to rusty, but today I was far more relaxed and enjoyed the ride, not the most comfortable thing but it was fun--Might yet get it to the 100 thousand miles I always said I would!! See you guys Thurs/Fri

I am working a plan that may/should see me along for the ride on Friday. :D

Looks like there is no room at the inn on Friday night, so I'll be heading back to Broxburn at some point on Friday afternoon, perhaps picking up some pf the stuff you will be doing on the Saturday.

Two other lads not on Boxertrix are booked into here for the Fri night because the Fife Lodge was full Jez http://www.carmelitehousehotel.com and we can all eat at the Fife Lodge just so you know :wink:

Ta. I'll take a look but with me heading to a Buell do in the Lakes on the Sunday I suspect I will need to spend some time with SWMBO at the in-laws on the Saturday.

Accepting the time aspects I'll meet you guys at the pub before 0930, so I can try to put names to faces and bikes before we start riding

Hello John, what's your planned route once you're back on the right side of the Tay?
I would guess you will be passing close to ours en-route to Clattering Brig, we could tag-on OR meet at Clattering Brig.
What time do you expect to be at Clattering Brig?

Looking forward to catching-up with fellow Trixters, old & new :)

Rob & Gail
