Shine!

Right then, now that I've found Cubbie's key, I can go fire the wee beastie up and get ready for the Big Day tomorrow. I cleaned it yesterday. You wouldn't believe how shiny it is. Lovely. Wheels and all. Looks like I'm meeting Slim in Turra, Alan in Keith, Kawa somewhere near Inverness, Mark on the Black Isle, Geoff & Julie are going up today in their camper van for a long long weekend, Captain Bill wasn't able to fix his Armstrong in time so he's going to meet us there in his car and Fido doesn't like the look of the forecast so is taking his bike in his van - well we did have a thunder storm and hail stones yesterday. Can't get in touch with ma man in Nairnshire, Andy, who was going to give me the guided tour, so I think we'll pop in at his house and surprise him. Sid was up in Dornoch last weekend and said it was cold, wet and windy and doesn't want to go back again quite so soon. And Ian said we have to call in for a cuppa on the way home. Bring it on! Pop pop pop pop pop pop....................................

Oh go on then, I spose I'd better check the Cubbie's Counties Paypal Account, just in case.

And then dig out my *NEW* sleeping bag, blanket (just in case), spare clothes for when I get a soaking, stick some polish on ma beets, sorry, boots, and dubbin on ma gloves.

Ooooh, just found out Mrs BC is going to be a bit merry by the time I get back, those nice people at Aspall Cyder are going to send her a load of alcoholic apple juice as a result of her alerting them to a faulty bottle. S'alright for some.

Right then people, I have it on good authority that if the weather is nice and we all bare our legs GBG will bare hers also,what an end to Cubbies Counties! Now that is something! as we in the club dont belive she has any legs.
This will only take place in the far North and there will be no pictures so if you are not there TUFF. Well on second thoughts how much are you all prepared to donate to Cubbies Counties for a photo, I will donate a Fiver,
Slick.

For the legs? Proof that she has them? I can cover 20.
(Dollars)
(Feet with painted nails as well?)

Well done Kid. I just knew you could do it. Hopefully all the doubters will now send you some money for your efforts, and all the moaners who said it didn't count 'cause you sometimes had to take cubbie in the van will get off their backsides and do something themselves - maybe without two jobs and a couple of bike clubs to organise and a farm to run. O.k., so I'm prejudiced, well, what are Mums for? Well done again - can we have a break now???

And a big thankyou to all those who supported you with donations and words of support, and also practical help. Thanks everyone.

You are probably back by now and hopefully have a successful conclusion to this mammoth undertaking,

Well done you,

I'll assume it rained and you all were soaked, tis Scotland after all.

Congratulations GBC!, You have done it! but I always had faith in you.
No leg show, sorry lads, maybe she will take a pick herself and post it to get the cash?.But she did remove her boots in the pub and that cleared a table so we could sit down.
A good weekend and not all that much rain.
We met interesting people and saw nice scenery, had good food and good beer, what more do you need.
Thanks to all for their company over the weekend, Kawa drop me an email,and Mark, I will be in touch about the Benelli rear light lens.
I wont spoil your story, but did the Aussie guy we met inspire you to greater things GBC ?

SLICK.
