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



Good man :wink:

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 :)

This sums me up too :bounce: :bounce:

Only John T could drag my sorry spinning sideways carcass back onto a bike and then straight into 1000 mile road trips less than a month in :shock:

Old friends, new (to me) toy. Fresh roads and sticky rubber. It’s gonna be grand :D

Perfect Loz, have a great evening and we look forward to seeing you and Roib tomorrow morning :wink:



A couple of lucky buggers rang me from the pub in Edinburgh while I was still at work :shock: Jammy sods :lol: I called in to have a pint with Paul and Herman (Peter) on my way home and pointed them in the direction of hot food, "Keep off the moors and stick to the road Lads" Moahahaha :twisted:
