managed to load a few pictures,

ready for the off, the proper adventure bike next to the so called adventure ;)

Image

Friday afternoon was a quiet balmy 0 degrees

Image

Image

as the night went on it got so cold we had to gently warm the port by the fire
[a fine accompaniment to elriders wonderful stew,thanks mark]

Image

Saturday morning we awoke to a bit of snow, not ideal to pack the camping gear away in
[no wonder there are so many outfits]

Image

once we reached the secret location of this years dragon the snow had thankfully gone

Only a 600 mile round trip. It was worth it for that pie. ;)

Doesn't count as your bike was guaranteed to make it.

It was a cracking weekend, made extra special by becoming a member of the other (not as fighty) MTRC.
