I wasn't able to comment following my ride out on the Liverpool ride, due to being some hours later on holiday  to Majorca for 14 days.
The ride was well organised and raised more than a few smiles and questions however the weather was against us , a few rain showers no problem but where we ended up on the Albert dock riverside with a gale force wind up your jacksie   :o was not pleasant it also detered the tourists from venturing to the group as well ,still a job well done and heres to next year , better start getting my donations in !

PLUS....... (But wait theres MORE!) We had PNW Axe throwing, which is like darts and a bit of snooker but more complicated.   Plus live music ................
The guy with the axe was just a random guy since my friend didnt want her picture taken with the axe, I kinda think he looks like the lead character from Fargo (William Macy) and presents a nice air of madness,, mild mannered car salesperson, Axe murdering psychopath in his spare time.
I wondered if Axe throwing might progress to hunting down hipsters or lawyers?  (Just a thought......)

 I knew I'd seen a mention of axe throwing somewhere....
 Funny it should come up here, because the other day I took a different routeto my youngstas  place down a street I hadn't been for a while , and just around the corner from him is a ' AXE THROWING ' Shed ....looked very busy too, with all kinda types in various cozzies ( *fight* uniforms)

 brought back memories of younger days when we used to run around the bush on horses playing Davy Crockett.. *doubt*.or maybe Daniel Boone..... *conf2*....trying to split trees with whatever bladey things we could find...

Started building in about 1977/8 a on average '52 A10 -built from bits 'n pieces never resto intended -maybe 'personalised'
Have a '74 850T Moto Guzzi since '92-best thing I ever bought doesn't need a kickstart 'cos it bump starts sooooooooo(mostly) easy
