Who the heck was Becky? What xm did she have?

I didn't see a single Bx with a bonnet up.. were they too shy of their lesser 8v engines? :lol: :lol: even the beauty Bx 16v was all locked up out the way... shame. A 16v should be shouted about... :wink:

Indeed it was...

Mine was open all day on Saturday but closed all day yesterday.

I drove straight into the shed and parked up last night... 30 seconds after I did we got torential rain! Glad I beat it home!

My XM did 5 times more mileage this weekend then it's done in the last 12 months!

Thats fighting talk where I come from you know, a bit like saying the only Xantia worth owning is a Activa........ :wink:

AND the only reason the bonnet was up to take a look as it was minter, :D

12 BXs, well in my defence I wasnt there much of Sunday :lol:

Shame we only have this meet once a year, the meetings up here seem too few and far between.

Well guys looks like i missed a good rally. it always seems to be windy at the northern rally....shame really as it whips up alot of dust.

Looking at the pictures i do like the yellow dyane and all the GS's :wink:

Its a pity it was the most busy weekend so far of the year for me....i intend to get to a show this year (work is horrible at the moment) and next year the big show at harrogate..bring it on :)

The yellow Dyane is a 4x4 8-)

Next years harrogate event is going to be excellent, im really looking forward to that. We have been asked to have two of our cars in the Citroen museum, so I will probably be there for all of the show days.

Cheers for that, Jim! It must be a while since you checked out prices on GSF. It is £75 for the replacement sensor. OUCH!

I enjoyed my windy excursion up North. They say it's grim up there but it wasn't too bad.

Like you said, had to pull a couple of slick manoeuvres to get out of Yorkshire undetected.

Made it across the border safely.

'Die Fliegende Zitrone' escaped unscathed. Flying in pairs always help deter attack I find.

Seriously though, both Sylvia and I enjoyed the afternoon. Shame it was too windy for the bike.
