Brrrrrrr!

It's 06.12hrs on the morning of the Haggis Run.

It's absolutely Arctic out there.

The dog doesn't want to go out.

It's raining a wee bit.

There's a gentle breeze in the tree tops.

We'll see how many hardy souls with hardy soles brave the brrrrrrr.

Wow, good thing I didn't make it over for the Haggis run. Guess I'll have to get on my bike and brave the 90 degree weather here. Gee the a/c is running overtime.

I was going to come across, pitty I didn't as the day turned out to be pretty good. Did Steve Campbell hang onto his Trophy this year?

"It's absolutely Arctic out there"
Wasn't too bad I was nice warm an dry.
Was a good day, sun out but still a bit windy.
Seemed to be a good turn out, was it around thirty?Was well worth the wee run up.
Good to see Slicks 3 1/2 Moto Morini, I can see why you bought it.
Had a good look at Sid's AJS V twin, first time I've seem it, its a credit to the man, an the sound from the pipes.....better calm down.

Nice People.
Nice Bikes.
Only one complaint, I got no GIANT YORKSHIRE PUDDING or any other size.I did`nt check with anyone else but maybe you can check before you pay for it.
Below was what was on the entry form.
SLICK.
Sausages on a bed of mashed potatoes with vegetables, served inside a giant Yorkshire pudding, with lots of gravy.

Sorry you couldn't make it Darrell, hopefully someone got a picture of the hailstones we can send you...

Anon, nope, Steve was in a close fought battle for it, but in the end, it was won by Maurice Clarke.

Calm down Kwak! Yep, 30ish bikes, thanks for you help today, glad you got home safe n sound.

Slick, Slick, SLICK. So sorry about your Yorkie pudd. I'll make you one for Christmas.

Sounds like a good time was had by all.
Kawa, I've always liked Moto Morini 3 1/2, didn't know it qualified as a classic yet (I must be old, seems just yesterday I saw my first one. Atcually 1985, Spain.)

Sorry, just popped out for a minute and missed all the fun.
Is this realy the launch of the long-awaited sidecar for Mrs B.C?
Is it realy constucted from left over panels from the new shed? I see it has received a coat of primer, now will it be green, purple or brown?

Was that exhaust pipes or bagpipes, Kawa? Glad everyone had a good time, those who didn't come missed a great day, brilliant scenery, fantastic bikes, and pretty good craic. How about next year? I hear there's a good campsite down the road for long distance travellers, and the usual B&Bs and various hotels Go on, you know you want to!!!!!

Darrell I used to have a 75 3 1/2 Strada, really nice bike to ride, sold it to pay for a trip to NZ, one of the bikes I wish I still had.

Mrs BC, the sound from those (exhaust) pipes were far better than the noise from any bagpipes.

Hey no one said anything about the "real" haggis that were given away at THE HAGGIS, well what did they taste like? I forgot to pick mine up :-(

An wheres the pics??

I can just imagine you rounding up the sheep in your stiletto heeled wellies Mrs B.C. Like mother, like daughter eh !!

"Pack me a bag Moneypenny, I,m heading North!"

Stuart ( Bond) ;-)

Mrs. B.C. said...

Now, Now, Stuart, you're already spoken for, remember?

You should have been at the Haggis though.

Mrs B.C. said...
