All home safe and sound. A tad chilly for the trip home. The excellent Welsh cooked breakfast kept us warm until lunch.....think I could have sold my heated jacket for twice what I paid.

Fantastic weekend not a cloud in the sky for the main ride out on Saturday. Finished off with a ice cream in Barmouth and a ride over the wooden foot bridge. Pics to follow.
Thanks to all that were there and to Nigel & Tiv from the bikers retreat who make you feel most welcome,
Food & beer 1st class......can't recommend the place enough.

It's been a great weekend, with some fantastic roads.

Unfortunately I have had a water leak all weekend so I stripped the bike down when I got home and it seems I need a new radiator.  Fingers crossed I can get something sorted before next weekend.

Looked as if you had a good one, yet another rad, stone chip? hope you get it sorted , Ponderosa looked quiet considering the weather.

Thanks to Wasp for organising a brilliant trip to Wales. The roads are great, the owners of the Bikers Retreat took us on a great ride out, and the food they provided was first class. Would definitely go again and recommend it to all.
Regards
Andy

Sadly just 3, but it made for fast pit stops and longer rides...

Actually not a stone chip.  This is a fatigue fracture, just below the left hand top mount, I understand very common.  Serves me right for all those miles.

A Replacement rad is over £500.  A recore about £360 but will take about 3 weeks. I may have to bodge it to get to the meet this weekend.  Or potentially get my TRX mot’d and pressed into service.
