Photos! (6th Annual Guy Fawkes Tweed Ride)

Here's my batch.

Hopefully other riders can share more, as I didn't quite catch all that  I'd hoped I would.

Fareweel to a' our Scottish fame,
Fareweel our ancient glory;
Fareweel ev'n to the Scottish name,
Sae fam'd in martial story.
Now Sark rins over Solway sands,
An' Tweed rins to the ocean,
To mark where England's province stands-
Such a parcel of rogues in a nation!

What force or guile could not subdue,
Thro' many warlike ages,
Is wrought now by a coward few,
For hireling traitor's wages.
The English steel we could disdain,
Secure in valour's station;
But English gold has been our bane -
Such a parcel of rogues in a nation!

O would, ere I had seen the day
That Treason thus could sell us,
My auld grey head had lien in clay,
Wi' Bruce and loyal Wallace!
But pith and power, till my last hour,
I'll mak this declaration;
We're bought and sold for English gold-
Such a parcel of rogues in a nation!

Och, aye!

I'll be there.  Already registered.  It's a good cause.

I think I am doing the Naperville Tweed ride, on the 18th of October.

Anyone else going?

It all depends on the state of tune as well as overall condition of the bike. 

I've sold fully-restored Raleigh Sports for $350+.  They were in better than showroom tune and in immaculate physical condition. 

It depends on which standards they were restored to and by whom.

Either is just under $200 at Working Bikes now ...

Thanks for the info.  I thought I got a pretty good deal but maybe not.
