Tullybannocher Norton Meeting

A real surprise, none of the storms and pestilence that had been forecast, we still packed the waterproofs just in case but for probably the first time since May they were not needed. A splendid run on the Norton up to Comrie, the Autumn colours were outstanding in the sunshine, the roads dry, whats not to like?
A nice turnout of bikes and plenty craic to be had, the pics will tell the story better.

My Mk3, still clean when I got home!

Last night we were both seriously trying to work out if we had to come back to the UK, we were spoiled with a weekend of great weather (hot!) great food and nice wine, whats not to like? Some pics to give you an idea
