After a mildly moist ride down to Pembroke I went to get the food for the Bowel busting Chili and most of all sort Sharries Beer out in a stand in Fridge.

Then out of the Gloom riders appeared. Pat and Loren , Craig, UkTiffy the the problem children from Up North





closely followed by other Europeans from from across the bridge


after an offending *** and refreshing drink off to the pub for some food and more beer most people walked or stumbled. But being resourceful we got Frad to call a taxi.
Sharrie and Kate discussing a game plan for teenage daughters :D:D:D


Len trying to help Russ to keep balance and composure on his bike and not falling off :thumbup:


Special one for those missing sole's Pig Ugly am Vanessa rummer has it Phil could not come because he bent down to pick up a penny from the floor of a toilet and twisted his back. Vader had an excuse he was trying you work nights in a Hospital Emergency unit and Debs I'am not saying a word, Late night stop out.:D

Re: 2011 Welsh Invaision

Vader Gordon is still waiting for you.


after a late start we headed out Some went on a round about, off road U turn ride with Mike. Whilst others took up the gauntlet and came with me North across the bridge Little Haven, Broad haven, New gale, Solva, St Davids the smallest city in UK. there Sharrie and Jean told me to buy them coffee and the the children wanted chocolates also. So after elevenses we headed up to Porth Gain, The Sloop inn for luncheon.




another one for Phil and Vader.:teeth::teeth:

Off then to Strumble Head to look for Seals and Tuna friendly Dolphins


could not find the swimmy type seals so hudders kicked Len in the Plumbs and made him look and sound like one.

Re: 2011 Welsh Invaision

Unable to find Dolphins or Seal we headed back PaulS and Sharrie went the direct GPS way back to Pembroke the rest of us carried on North to Fish Guard then Gwaen Valley for a spirited ride back, about 20 miles further than Paul and Sharries route and we arrived 5 minutes after them. I had my new GSA out for a spin. It was so powerful I was towing Frad and Hudders most of the way on their little Honda's.

In the evening we managed to find some beached whales tho.

The evening was entertaining and every one had seats, Barftone wishing he had brought the Bike, Barftone also tried selling he new book 101 ways to make excuses why he is in the car.:toothy10::toothy10:


Does my hair look greasy???????? you W####r.



The old Guard, See if you can see Vader hiding behind the sofa :D


Three wise men


And the Ugly Duckling



I'am cold, Is my hair greasy???


Thanks to every one who came this weekend I had a great time, Veggy Chilli rules.

Re: 2011 Welsh Invaision

Pembroke is in Wet Wales. That's not a typo. I know it is also in West Wales and I know when I load my photos they will all be of the lovely sunny Saturday, but it rained the whole way there and pretty much the whole way home.

We're in, with towels on the floor to mop up the litres of water pouring from our bike gear. Going to lie in front of the telly for a bit.

Big thanks to Mom and Sharrie for organising it and cooking everything. Full report when my fingers start working again.

Re: 2011 Welsh Invaision

A few of mine.

Needless to say we had the ride from hell to get there. I think everybody arrived in a fairly soggy state.


Len said Jean was a secret tippler, it's all a bit much for UKtiffy


Rare sight, Craig drinking tea and not speaking



Too much for Pat, Fish wonders what the hell he's let himself in for.




Austin asserting himself, with the car driver trying to take a piccie



Saturday dawned dry and bright and a request was made to go back to see the chapel in the cliff. Ok I said I know where that is. Off we went. Unfortunately the roads got narrower and narrower and the green slimy bit in the middle got wider and wider. Craig said on one occasion you couldn't have got his a**e off the seat with a block of C4.So we duly arrived.........................................at the wrong place! It was quite pretty though.




Man taking photo




Chris threatening to jump if I went back down the slimy road



Quick consultation with Austin and a look at a map and off we went again. We got to a road junction and my sat nav stopped working, Austin rode up pointed and said it's up there. We decided after 400m of off roading that perhaps he's made a mistake. Then came the only U turn of the day and it wasn't my fault ( where's the smug smiley?) After a trip around a pretty chapel's car park smartar*e DDW says I know where it is, and he was right. we duly arrived at the place where the church was in a big hole.



Kate's got a new hi viz



Sea was rough



We then made our way to Saundersfoot for lunch. There was a technical U turn because I missed a turning and went around the block, but I'm fairly sure I got away with it. Oh and Craig decided to try and fall off again by riding up the middle of a flooded road. He didn't realise that the water was hiding a long, deep patch of mud,



After lunch we all made our way back to prepare for the chilli evening.

Chris doesn't realise there's an extra from Buffy sat behind him




Mmmm


Sharri trying hard to keep one bottled



Thanks to everyone for turning up in some of the worst weather I've ridden in, and for making it another great weekend.:thumbup::thumbright:

Re: 2011 Welsh Invaision

Cracking weekend, thanks to organisers, cookers and washerupers... you know who you are, made the weekend what it was, thank you :thumbleft:

We got lovely sun on the Saturday for the rideout so that was a bonus.

Yes i nearly came a cropper... twice!... if only Austin had a video mounted for the first one, would have been worth watching :D

Took a couple of wrong turns on the way home and just done 430 miles... absolutely knackerd... cuppa in hand and a bath waiting and thinking of the next one :thumbup:

********......just typed a big long reply and deleted it by mistake.

Thanks to all in the welsh gang for organising another brilliant weekend - well done on accommodation, food, ride-outs and general low level organisation. Top job.

We were lucky with the weather and never really got rained on properly for long. We got home today at about 4.30 after a long brunch break with our son in Aberystwyth. The ride home was excellent with quiet drying roads nearly all the way and most of the road works lifted too. We even saw Len zoom past on the Chester by pass while we getting petrol. It's 240miles for us so Craig's journey home is a real marathon.

Thanks again.

Re: 2011 Welsh Invaision

Thanks to all for a great week-end.
Especially to organisers and cooks.
Worth the distance to be there.

Got home after 6 and half hours, was enjoying it until the torential rain from Birmingham. I think it was Friday's rain waiting for me. So Gloves and boots back on the radiator and hot bath.

Forgot my camera so keep photos coming.

Re: 2011 Welsh Invaision

Thanks everyone for a fabulous weekend, even the wet weather going there and coming back couldn't ruin it (the sun on saturday more than made up for it) thanks go especially to those who organised it, Mike, J, Sharrie. I didn't take that many photos but here are a few i did.

Re: 2011 Welsh Invaision

Another top weekend missed ! Glad you all had a good one ?

Actually it wasn't till I drove past Bristol today and smelt your breath coming over the bridge, that I remembered where you'd all gone :D
