So much to do.

Well there ain't never a dull moment. I've got county bagging plans for the weekend, probably Banffshire but maybe Nairnshire too, but then again I might have to work on at least one weekend day. Although the 2nd Haggis run isn't until October, we're delving headlong into checking venues and looking at how best to advertise it and get any necessary sponsorship this year. The Plus1 is in my diary for the 12th August, and it should be in yours too. We're putting together the literature for entrants right now and hope to have something on paper by the beginning of next week. Then of course there is the route to finalise, VMCC permits to organise and the Sun God to bribe. Slightly closer in the calendar is the Large Lunch, a sort of unofficial gathering for anyone on any bike. Ideally it will bring all the classics out on to the roads, but in reality we tend to get a mixture of both old and new bikes. It's a good chance for the modern riders to admire the real bikes in the spring sunshine. Then I'll be heading south to the National Motorcycle Museum - never been before, quite looking forward to it, wonder if there are any Cubbies in there... Apart from organising things, it's time to check the diary to see which events I'll be going to. Trouble is, the easiest thing to do is to go to the same shows and rallies as last year, 'cos I know when there are, I know how to get there, I know who'll be there. But doesn't that sound a wee bitty dull? I might try and squeeze in a couple of different ones this year. Then I've got the sidecar to build for the 250cc MZ, Cubbie to lavish some TLC on, while I'm gadding about on a nice Moto Morini - or the big Skorp if I can get those jobs done to it. Hmmmm, Robin of Wales is pencilled in to bring a supply of chocolate Hobnobs at some point in the summer, looking forward to that one, might leave the shed building 'till then... Lambing is booked in to start in the middle of May, fingers crossed the girls will all do what they do when they're supposed to do it. Bound to be other things happening too, just had a phone call from a potential club member, a lady who sounds as mad as me - she's ridden to the Arctic Circle so I think that qualifies her! If you promise to come back afterwards, you can pop over to that You Tube place and watch her video of the group arriving at the Circle - this is part 5 but all the other parts are there too http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W5CLyFH_IXk&feature=related
As well as that, she's involved with a local animal sanctuary called Willows, who have just posted a short vid about their animals on that very same site - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHAy24fu8DQ. As if she doesn't have enough to do, she has also just taken possession of a 1970s Honda 400/4, which she intends to do up and ride on our Cairn O Mount rally in May - oh yeah, forgot about that! Luckily there are three good chaps in charge of organising that one this year, I'm sure they'll do a grand job - you can now enter online at www.gcmcc.co.uk. Then of course there's the book to finish, as well as the Cubbies Counties video to finish.... Me oh my, how am I going to find time to paint my nails again?

You are obviously very scary. Or maybe they have lives that dont revolve around cubs, like golf or something. Or maybe the wives are rebelling and threatening them with credit card usage.

Golf! What's that? It's not footie, or rugby, or F1, or anything to do with horses or rally cars, Oh, I remember, it's that thing where you walk for miles in the rain and wind without the dog, but with a stick and a ball. Mmm - sounds like fun. What's a credit card again?

AND Kawa you're a star, and Darrell so are you!

"painting nails", traveling to museums, all that must be nice. Some of us have to work.
Not me of course, but some of us.

Thank you Mrs BC
Just watched Britains Best Drives,The Trossachs,an was good to see the out come of GBC efforts getting the bikes and people there for the filming.Just a pity the bike bit was only on a few mins.

Golf,the only people I know who play that spend their time in the 19th hole.More of an escape from the wives me thinks.Rant over
