    Never mind wearing lederhosen. . . . . .I got the Dragon tickets in this mornings post.
    The last line reads "Remember camping out in winter is for the physically fit" theres no mention of mental state :D
    Maybe see some of you there, I will have a Peugoet Boxer door and a double canoe.

    I'll be there. :D
    I'll be on a grey F800GS with an Awesome Player Offroad MC sticker on it. I'll be with my mate who'll be on a black Tenere 660. I'll be camped in a tipi with a stove in it, come and say hi.

    My first one, I've been meaning to do it for years, but something has always gotten in the way. My tickets arrived 2 days ago.

    Good luck with getting the Peugeout boxer on site, the following is their FAQ, in its entirety:

    I suspect a Van won't be any more acceptable!, even if technically, they've not said you can't bring one.

    No van, just the door, well actually its a K75RT, but it looks like a van door :D

    We will look out for you, your set up sounds pretty good.

    Last time I went was early 80's when I was working in Conwy on the Conwy crossing A55 project.

    Great, I look forwards to seeing you.

    Ah, good old K-bikes. A colleague of mine did all his business travel on one for 5 years.

    Hi Ceri - not seen you for some time; 'was either a MM or HAF event I think. Keeping well?

    I'll be there on an X Challenge with a mate on a X County (Yellow - you can't miss it!)

    The 50th Dragon was good, but not been since; looking forward to this one. Hopefully catch you there early on whilst I can still conduct some form of communication - it's hard night!!

    Hello :)

    Yes, one of the HAFs, 7 I think must be 2 years or so now. Hope you're doing well. Good here; F8 still behaving itself and now I'm finally living in one place I've joined the local TRF at long last (South Wales lot) and get out occasionally. I do a lot of my riding in mid Wales these days (Rhayader and that neck of the woods). Was up there yesterday crashing through the ice on Strata Florida.

    Will be great to catch up. I should be there fairly early; it looks like I'm going to stay with the friend I am riding there with in Chester the night before, so would be surprised if I was there later than lunchtime. Where are you heading in from?

    I'll keep any eye out for you, would be good to have a bevvy or three.
