Saturday Parade Ride Pix ~ Sunday Rideout Pix ~ Marshals set



Well the rain held off for the opening salvo of the 2008 rally season and it was a a privilege to be sharing the weekend with old friends - thanks for all the words of wisdom.  My sprog 'Mad' Max was with me to lend moral support and  share the workload as Moggy and her TWO new assistant directors (who help carry her home after a great night) gently wrestled the reins from Dave Holden standing down after many years as chapter director.



Rianna Long undoubtedly took the prize for most radical haircut (despite the fact that the fancy dress theme was 'Elvis lookalikes' )

 ... but the focal point of the weekend was inevitably the 5000+ pounds raised by the presence of  a lovely lady on this suitably stunning pink Sportster promoting 'Sarah's Appeal' towards breast cancer awareness

Max and I didn't get much chance to mingle but here's a few pix to give you a Snakebite of a stunningly well oiled rally !!

SNAKEBITE OF THE BEST
 

Spirit of Chapel Ash



Chapel Ash once again gave everyone a 'Knight to Remember' with their group fancy dress effort

parade 5401 to 5600
parade 5601 to 5800
parade 5801 to 6000
parade 6001 to 6165

SUNDAY RIDE OUT PIX

I also took around 300 pix on my favorite bend a few hundred yards from the site so if ya didn't take the time out to visit the stand and check em' out - shame on you  .. I stood in the rain for 90 minutes with only a dead duck in the dyke for company !

There's over 300 pix in this gallery but this image number guide should give you some idea where to look;
