All the best,

I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint

Was watching some of ABR festival on their website last night - they're broadcasting live from 18.00 each night of the festival.

Certainly made me want to be there, so maybe next year, although it has to be many years since I spent a night under canvas.
No matter how smart you are you can never convince someone stupid that they are stupid.

A few pics from the ABR weekend.







Can anyone see a Honda on it’s side?





Queues were manageable if you caught them right!



Nick was not impressed by the entertainment!



Have we lost Nick to the dark side?



The sun did come out at times!



All in all a great weekend for adventure-minded folk!


All the best,

Of course not. Honda’s are never tired, are they? ;)

Have we lost Nick to the dark side?

After riding both the regular and the special for a long afternoon, I have to say that he would not be lost. He ought to be corrected, but the special is not a half bad bike. The electronic suspension does make a major difference though. It transforms the bike into something that is much better rideable both on and offroad.

No dancing girls persons  :icon_lol:

Looks like they were at least better organised than any of the football games I've seen on TV recently  :icon_rolleyes:

The entertainment wasn't top notch and perhaps belonged in a 1970's northern working mans' club rather than at the festival.

No sign of dancing girls either!
