Good evening,

Good to hear from you Colin, hope all is well, I'll see you all there.

Haven't seen you for ages.

It will be nice to catch up over a luke warm cup of "tea" and a cremated bacon butty.

Personally I live for the soggy hot dog and a minceable pie. Cocorico - I confess I sold it with a list of suggestions as to what I hadn't done and thought it was.... I was right. But its getting someone back on two wheels after decades away so I'm not crying too much about the bargain he got. Sure Mr Hondapants will be along soon to gloat laughlaughlaughout-a-here

South Yorkshire Wortley Forge Christmas Gathering.

Sorry for poor quality photos but had to keep reducing size to get them to load up - I'm sure somebody else who knows what they're doing will put some better ones up.

Cold but bright and dry apart from standing water.

Sludgy grass banks provided perfect "slide in" parking followed by the customary burn outs on the cobbles - enjoyed by all - apart from the static engine blokes close enough to choke on the fumes.

A great day with lots of laughs and intelligent conversation.

Loads of proper big old "stuff" to look at and play with.

Was good to get out again and as we always say - we must do it more often.

7 Bantams and a 1949 Matchless G80.

It would have been 8 Bantams as Steve came on one of his but was refused admission due to previous bun theft convictions.

BBQ baked potatoes were a vast improvement on previous years cuisine but Spike still took the soggy sausage.

Everybody avoided the old bloke with the runny nose doing the bacon sarnies.
