2011 North West 200

Myself and the G's (Glenn, Gordon & Graeme) attended this year's (non) event.

Despite the weather conditions we all had a really good time. The only downside was that someone's bike fell over during the ferry crossing to Belfast and landed on Graeme's bike, breaking his NSR indicator :mad:

Before I post some poor action shots I'll set the scene for day with a few general pics - the clue is in the clothing and umbrellas! :winkie:

That's why it's useful to have a bike with a topbox.  You've always got your waterproofs handy.:smile

I guess a topbox would look a bit out of place on the 'golder gixxer.':doubt:

Great pics

Glad you all had a good time, despite the weather and that there were not too many mishaps - unusual for the Scottish Crew holidays haha

 

How did Graeme cope with his indicator being damaged, as I know he's only recently got the bike back together again lol

 

As for Si, I reckon he isn't as rufty, tufty a biker as you lot :tongue:

We did actually have rucksacks with us to carry waterproofs etc., although I honestly doubt that any waterproof could have fended off the rain on the way home. It really was torrential :shock:

I think you're right about topboxes and gixxers, but I have to admit that over the course of the weekend I found myself admiring bikes with luggage :winkie:

 

 

Jeni Graeme was a bit pissed off and couldn't believe his bad luck. Although it didn't hold us back and through town I just rode behind him to cover the indicating :smile

Aye, understandably - but at least you were able to help him out.  Roll on a new set of fancy indicators coz you know what he's like :lol:
