Thanks to Spokey for organising such a great day (and the pictures and write up!) - The drive was great fun, with lots of excellent roads with stunning scenery and best of all virtually no other traffic and no speed cameras. :twisted:

It was good to meet up with everyone and I would certainly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good drive! I will definitely be going to one again - I may even be able to make it to the Southern Softy depending on a few things :lol:

I don't blame the tractor driver for doing an attractive blonde - seems like an odd reaction to seeing a few 1ers though...

glad you all had a good time

Good photos spokey and thanks again for the excellent organisation of the event. I hope there'll be plenty more ride-outs of this caliber. I'll put my photos up over the next few days hopefully.

PS. how much of a prick was the driver of that Golf driving down the M6 on the way home?!

Sounds like it was a good day, be there for the next one, only 131 hours of suffering the golf left collecting the BMW Monday morning.

Defiantly wasn't me on the M6, as The main VW dealers body shop were still trying to sort out the B*****s they had made of fitting a new wing because of the damage that they had done to the old one.
