Anybody interested in a "mini" farmyard ? at my place. Plenty of camping space,loads of "secure" off road parking, excellent natural surroundings and local pubs in walking distance,all free! fire and barby bring something to burn (food) and something to wash it down but the kettle never goes cold Ideal opportunity for those learners/newbies to try their hand at laden travel as I am almost on top of the Farmyard site and within spittin distance of the "old site" if anyone who hasn't been to it wants a look at where it was born Suggestions for date Room for 15/20 ish Em

Only if you park it in the village and get a lift in on a bike like a "proper" Farmyarder And Kaz I'm sure its just coincidence but I posred first

Just thought I'd "run it up the flagpole an see who salutes it"! It could happen any time of the year actually but as its my 60th on the 10th an I expect some musicians to turn up for a "jam" seemed like a good way of "killin several flyin things wi 1 projectile"

Such a joke these "no cars, no pedestrians, no excuses" rules. All I ever do when going to summat like that is park up, ring someone to come get me and pilly onto the site.

Although mostly these days, I just don't bother. Plenty of shows willing to permit the heinous crime of arriving in a car, so I spend my money with them instead Besides... my Ka's smaller & takes up less space than half the bloody trikes that turn up and are somehow permitted entry as "bikes".

I know what you you mean, its just reverse discrimination After years of suffering the ignomony of being turned away from venues for having the audacity to arrive on a multi thousand pound motorcycle wearing a grands worth of bike gear when they happily let in a battered £50 escort containing several £3 "shell suited" toe rags Ooh ! sorry should have been a random rant But as bikers we should be bigger than that Set an example and welcome the public however they choose to arrive Whats wrong wi "day visitors" at a bike rally ? it would make more sense to arrange a park and ride

Hehehe! We had a sweet revenge on a Kent pub for refusing to serve a friend and his wife one Sunday lunchtime...

Nice couple, just coming up to retirement... bought themselves a brand new touring bike and planned to travel around Europe for a few months... they decided to take her for a test ride out one sunny day for lunch, fully laden, just to get a feel for her.

So you get the picture...

Anyhow, they're ultimately refused service in the nicey nicey country pub... and politely walk away...

Then they get home and start phoning round the entire family/friends/hangers on... And we all turn up in the evening, more than 20 of us... children, grandchildren, friends, various others...

And order the trickiest drinks possible - the weirdest mixes so that they couldn't possibly re-sell them to anyone else... then when they announced the total and demanded payment, my friend says "You don't serve bikers in here, do you?" all polite and enquiring like...

"Oh no Sir!" comes the response...

"Oh really?" Says my friend "I'm dreadfully sorry! You see, every last one of us here is a biker, we just so happen to have come out in our cars this evening. I guess we'll just have to leave quietly then"

And we all marched out

As for my friends... Sadly the grand tour was not to be...

The next time they took the bike out for a test run, a couple of dippy tarts in a mini, more interested in whether their mascara was on straight than what was going on outside their vehicle, decided to pull straight out on them from a side turning and my friend's missus landed up in hospital for months, ultimately resulting in a double hip replacement

There are plenty of shows that do... & they're the folk who get my money when I'm in the Ka

Hell, some of 'em even let you drive your gear down to where you're pitching your tent, so you don't have to lug it all across a couple of fields from where you park the car Nice people. I like those people. I like them lots. And if I look needy enough, they even help me pitch my tent
