Hey Sjak'
it will be great if you can make it. Lambert gave a solemn promise to attend this year when we met up at Cafe Calluna last year.
best wishes Mart

Hey Martin,
Yes, we spoke about the Rally (and his promis) and I hope we will be able to come over.
I've never been to Dent or the Lake District or Yorkshire Dales.

Maybe this year :)

I've just noticed the change of dates. I shall be celebrating my Birthday at the ABR Rally at Ragley Hall. I hope you all have a good time. Sjak/ Lambert, if you come over for more than just the weekend perhaps we can meet up somewhere else.

Hi Martyn, coming over that weekend is not possible for me. As you might remember I work at a college, and we are then very busy finishing up and I have to be there to hand out diploma's. Best, Lambert

Hi Lambert,
I am pretty sure that the current weekend chosen will not be the final one. If you wish to come it would be best to let Steve know which weekend would be best for you.
Have fun with the diplomas.
Mart

Great place to stay! I guess it will be a bit of a last minute decision if i can make it. Will do my best though! Hope i arrive in Dent a little bit dryer than the last time i was there, with the "late" XT660.com meeting. About 6 hours riding in continuous pouring rain, and on that trip my pants decided it was time to give up their waterproofness forever.  ;D ;D ;D

Ha Ha Ha, I remember it well.

I still have the date organised but in these uncertain times we cannot be sure of anything happening. All major events appear to have been cancelled, but a smaller group gathering like ours will be easier to organise very quickly. Obviously this will depend on Government restrictions being relaxed but all we can do is wait and hope.

Stay safe all out there and abide by your Governments' guidelines.

Cheers Steve
If I'm not working I'll be away on my bike camping!

I remember you arriving too Harry, as you say it was a very bad time for your trousers to give up their warterproofness, but if I do remember right you went off and showered and were soon warm and dry. I slept that night in a puddle of water as when I woke in the night and felt the wet I realised I wasn't actually cold so what the heck might just as well put up with it. Great rally though.

Look forward to a safe end to lockdown globally and getting together with some like-minded people.

Hi Steve and all....

Ok guys. I have had some feedback about a date and I am now going to suggest the 10th, 11th 12th JULY

Initially I said we would be away, but the way things are going with this Zombie Virus....at present there are no ferries over to Europe...Brittany Ferries are not taking passengers 'til mid October and P&O North Sea, nothing in the foreseeable future, so it looks like holidays will be in the UK this year, so if the meeting is still on and the ferries are off, we'll be there.
Dave.

Here's hoping Dave, I personally get the feeling it'll be the end of June before we see any real relaxation of the lockdown. That still leaves  most of the summer free, with a bit of luck and a following breeze  ;D. Hope you are both keeping well...

Yes, we're both fine, with motorcycling for pleasure being a illegal activity, we both registered as NHS Responders and Pat has been making garments for the NHS through local sewing groups, so we've done a few trips by bike to collect and deliver materials/completed garments, only short trips, but better than nothing.
I built a couple of e-bikes last year and we've been making the most of those, especially as the roads are so quiet...great fun, I must have done well over a 1000 miles on mine since the lockdown as I get out 3 or 4 times a week.
Hopefully see you all in Dent.
Dave.

Date I say it, but it looks like it might be possible to run the rally later in the summer. Fingers xd...
