Black Mountains Chapter, Wales 3rd Dragon Fever Annual Rally.

What a fantastic weekend we have all had at Dragon Fever 2016 in Bryn Bettws Lodge.

I am overwhelmed by the amount of fantastic photos on Facebook of everyone having a great time and also by the huge amount of compliments and thanks from our chapter members and other chapters who attended and supported us.

These Chapters were; Dunedin, Stoke, Wolfruna, Nene Valley, Thames Valley, Bridgwater, Great Western, Rolling Hills, Deva Legion, Oxford, New Forest, Plymouth, Aire Valley, Fenlanders, Peak Riders and Birmingham. Thank you very much for supporting us, Black Mountains will return the favour :-)

Many thanks to Lynette and our great Dealership and also the Bryn Bettws Lodge staff who played a blinder.

A big thank you to all those members from home and away, as well as other guests who turned up from Wednesday onwards to help with creating the fantastic rally setting and also dismantling this morning and sharing the workload. Without your help, it would be impossible.

Here’s to Dragon Fever 21-23 July 2017, in the stunning mountain location of Bryn Bettws Lodge.

Thank you,

I wanted to thank everyone who played a part in this weeks twinning visit between the Black Mountains Chapter Wales and the Ducs d’ Normandie Chapter France.

Starting at mid-day on Thursday in Cardiff and ending with tears of sadness at mid-day today at Tintern Abbey, our road crew, members and guests escorted the Ducs from one side of Wales to the other and back again.

There were so many fantastic highlights, its difficult to choose a favorite moment. Facebook is overflowing with hundreds of twinning photos and comments. I think its fair to say that each day was packed with great rides and fun social activities.

I have been totally overwhelmed with positive comments from members of both chapters and others who also attended the events. Each one of you that took part should be very proud of hosting such an outstanding exchange visit.

A big thank you to all members of the Black Mountains Chapter, Swansea Harley Davidson our relatives and friends who helped organise each event and also to our very good friends at the Ducs d’ Normandie Chapter.

Looking forward to our visit to Normandy in June.
