Borders get together

Our annual Tay Valley/ Edinburgh/ Northumbria Norton get together was on this weekend in Yetholm, just a mile or so from the border. I have to say the campsite is first class and the wee pub in the village is quite good as well so perfect for a weekend really, the weather gods were also good to us so that was the icing on the cake. Once again great company and plenty nonsense talked all weekend, the pub had an Abba disco on the Saturday which made things interesting, some of the locals getting into the act with 80's spandex back in vouge for the evening. Stopped in Kelso for breakfast and ran into a group of Guzzi riders I know from Newcastle returning from their camping weekend, small world. Great run home and managed a wee wheelie on the Commando with some spirited riding over a hill, also notice I had to ride Fiona's usual steed as mine isn't fixed yet !
