Back in time to 2009

 Well that was 13 glorious years ago, the days when you organised stuff and people turned up and enjoyed themselves, pubs were always happy to see you and pleased for the extra trade. How times have changed, even before the Covid debacle it had changed, the NC500 had turned Scotland into a destination for adrenalin junkies, motorhome fanatics and various people "Doing" the NC500. Covid of course gave us another kick in the balls and sorry to say its just not the same, hopefully it will  return to normality some time (Before the ECO Zealots have us going back to horse and carts) The good times are coming back, its up to us, thats me and you to ensure that they do! Get out on the bike, meet up with like minded souls and party on!

This is a brilliant example of what it used to be like, the Norton meet in Applecross in 2009,  it can be again just non illegitimi carborundum !

Saturday morning outside the pub ready for the run!
What a setting
What a crew! Dave Allen nearest the camera sadly not with us anymore
Not a bad backdrop
And again
Martin on the Bealach
Hector chasing someone up the pass
Nortons coming over the hill
This was funny, not my 100th party and at the bottom it said folk music....wrong!
Sound check
Before it got crazy
Guy and Karin and Tomas and Andrea getting warmed up 
Me talking shite
part of the old rally crew!
George showing Fiona how its done
Alex and Guy , The day after
Tomas only came in to say hello and didn't drink this (he had plenty the night before)
