I have some absinthe that will probably do the same job...bit of a waste though!

Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Just got back. Bloody hell it was hot. My head is still burning. Would have stopped longer but the missus was moaning (I knew she would :evil: ). She was still moaning when we got home as I got her down off the roof rack :lol: (I wish :roll: ).

Nice to meet some of you, thanks for the trims Tim. I'll post a few piccies later.

Got back just in time for dinner having got caught up in the Duxford traffic... What a great time. Really good to catch up with some familiar and less familiar Clubbers. The traditional BX Saturday revelry exceeded expectations. We certainly caused the usual disturbance... Being 'told off' by the bloke with a torch embedded in his forehead was a highpoint! My headache disappeared soon after a bacon butty this morning....

What a good turnout of BXs. Pics to follow.
