Back in the mists of time, I did 2 Dragon's, I think it was 79 and 80, I'll check the badges later. 79 was my first winter rally, and a cold one it was, I was on a BM R60-6 with a poor battery. A group of about 8 of us went up early Saturday morning, through various passes etc, heading up a road to one pass that looked snow bound, we were greeted by a guy coming down on a trail bike, sliding on its side. With a smile, he said "you ain't going up there" 3 of us sharing a tent, no airbed or anything, and I just a summer type sleeping bag, I froze! On getting up in the morning, early, there was an ambulance on site, some unfortunate (a little to much to drink) hadn't made it into his tent at all, hyperthermia,,,,:eek1 Bike wouldn't start, flatish battery, good job site was on top of a hill. Next one was a lot milder, a new CB900 this time, rain and mud, and I'd prepared not to freeze. I fully enjoyed both, this year I was just too late trying to get tickets, all sold out.
