    Maybe a little early................but what the hell

    It's been a mixed year, but on the whole pretty good - after a rough start last Xmas

    My second full year of self employment has seen me with enough work to allow me to do the things that I enjoy and pay the bills..........so i'm grateful for that

    After a winter of harsh weather, things got better and by March we were able to get biking again

    I bought this in Feb at the Classic Dirt Bike Show..................but soon realised 25 year old bikes may look shiny but they don't ride as well as modern ones

    and stuck to my modern Trials bike............I entered many trials in the early part of the year

    I also did plenty of trailriding in Spring & Summer, in the Dales and Moors

    In May I went to the UKGSER event at a new venue @ Montford Bridge and it was good to see loads of people again



    In June, I was asked to go to Timolgra's wedding to the lovely Ange and it was one of the highlights of 2011

    We had a lovely B&B here, with my new girlfriend

    Mid August I went to the the excellent Cotswold bash - hosted by Toad and family and then 1 week later I was back there within 2 miles, to attend the BMW Club 60th Anniversary National @ Moreton in Marsh



    Sept - it must be East Midlands @ Lumb Farm

    Cookie & Angie, Oscar and Humvee attended for the first time, so i organised to show them the Peak District............I think they enjoyed themselves

    We were due to meet up once again for a holiday to Spain to the Moto Piston Rally in early October

    No pics from me.......................but a most excellent trip report can be found here from Humvee

    A week after returning, with a 20c temp drop I was off to Germany again..............to the Mosel

    Last weekend, I finished it off by joining Micky for his suprise 65th Birthday weekend in mid Wales, although I took a bike, I admit I never rode one all weekend
