Look oot, there’s mad Danes aboot “The elbuck fankles in the coorse o’ time The sheckle’s no’ sae souple, and the thrapple Grows deef and dour : nae langer up and doun Gleg as a squirrel speils the Adam’s apple” “A Drunk Man Looks at The Thistle” Hugh McDiarmaid 1926 That should have beeen titled ‘A Drunk Man at The Thistle’ , I know I heard several folk speaking in a similar vein, whether that’s what they said or what I was hearing may be debatable due to the large quantities of Guinness, hmmmm A last minute dash for me, with a promise of a crash on a carpet sealed the deal meant Thistle number 41 was on for me, I’ll be that age soon 🙂 images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request Trish should know better than to stand so close to Jimmy images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request On arrival the rally was already busy, very busy, this is always a good sign, as per usual it was straight to the wee marquee, which I’m told was, this year, erected by the weans under the watchful eye of the newly monikered ‘Grumpy Dave’… Partaking of my free nip and a couple of rolls with Ronco Explodo-eggs which I ate in traditional style of more yolk on me combat than in me gob. images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request Kayla Kerr playing the Bagpipes She Intends to Raise funds for NABD over the next year starting at this years Thistle Rally and presenting cheque to NABD at next years Thistle http://www.piperkayla.co.uk Kayla raised £221 at Thisle Rally this year images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request Aiden’s braw turbo diesel bike, fwarrr 🙂 images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request Still feeling hungry I joined a group of bumbling troubadors for dinner, well a bunch of well meaning idiots would be more accurate, I include myself in that description 🙂 The hotel is apparently under new management, the ‘Bikers Dinner’ wouldn’t even register 1 star on ‘Ergot Ronnies’ Metzeler Star award system … Ah’ve tasted better out of a skip, why I’ve eaten out of a skip is another story, but in true Food Critic terminology, it was shite !… Bikers are human beings, we do possess taste buds, no really, otherwise we’d all drink Tennents Lager FFS. Quite why anyone thought they could rip the piss serving this crap up is beyond me. Just needed a wee rant about that, Of course the endless free grub provided by FVMCC in the marquee saved the day ….. images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request Jim provides an example of proper cuisine Friday night Trogg was turning out the tunes interrupted by a bunch of folk with various instruments and strange names like Whumff and Flat Oot, both played great sets that filled the floor, Flat oot’s singer, er Claire, sorry if that’s wrong but I was bolloxed, has a great voice, I right enjoyed their set. images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request Loud tops save lives ! images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request Like many, we adjourned to the pub in Biggar, the poor old locals couldn’t get a look in, a few pints and the biggest Haddie I’ve ever seen !, ‘kin ‘ell I thought Jonah was gonna fall out of it. There seems to be a food theme going on here, well, hanging about with some Fat Bastards will have an effect if you hang around long enough 🙂 images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request Saturday afternoon was spent drinking and nodding off, er, I mean listening intently to Gus and Sheena’s acoustic set in the lounge, images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request images copyright - Bikers1.com - available on request Saturday Evening we were treated to Saor Patrol, of whom I haven’t got any photos as I’m a twat, and I left my battery charging and wondered why the bloody shutter wouldn’t fire… sheesh, it’s that bloody Guinness again.

Pics and Drivel By Al On a footnote, the arseholes who fucked about the Blue Light services on Friday night…. I hope yer next shite’s a hedgehog…. ye don’t get much lower than you lot ……….
