    Varadero,s loose in Wales,Then S--t Happens

    I attended a Vara weekend in Betws-y-Coed a few weekends ago, The organiser could not make it until the Sat evening, I offered to do the run, To my great amusement six bike turned up so it made up as Three Crosstourers and one Varadero one Africa twin and a Harley.
    But what a great weekend we had a great day with a good mix of roads coastal, mountain lakes and tracks, Got back to Betws early evening the other's had turned up so a good evening at the Swallow Falls Hotel, Then a good ride back to Shropshire next day. It was nice to see the other ex Vara men on Crosstourers, I had no idea they had seen the light.
    Drum thro to Wednesday night and I've had a another Heart attack and my Pacemaker/defibrillator saved the chips and so to Hossy I go, I am home now but not able to drive for the next six months, Not happy but looking at it another way I'm still here and my well stalled project to finish the rebuild on my Matchlees 650 CSR will now get finished.
    As I said S--t happens but the sky is blue and tomorrow is another day. Also the Crosstourer will be better than showroom finish by the end of November.

    Cheers Owen
