Sounds grand!

Hi Dazzer!
Hope you don't mind if I join you on this one? Might be a good chance to try out my newly aquired TTR 250 Raid?
Be good to catch up with Jake and Brighty again & hopefully some other friendly faces!
Cheers

Dazzer looks like I might be out of this one now the Bilge pump has just had the drive shaft throw in the towel - I have it stripped ready to go back together but am waiting on the exchange shaft and doubt it will get here before next friday (coming from Germany) If it does get here I will have it all together in a few hours and will come down but we will see. Its all down to Mr DHL now.

Now, these co-ordinates are rough co-ordinates. They should take you to the road its on but no guarantes as I've never been there and im not exactly certain where the site is.

I think the road its on is called ------- road. The maps arn't very detailed for this part of the country I'm afraid.

If you see an Africa Twin and a transalp flying about the place looking lost, give us a wave

Ted
The reason why I pm'ed everyone with the location map was not to make it public on the internet .


It's best to do these things without the whole world knowing that they will be a load of bike's parked up all night





Some of us will be meeting up at the McDonalds car park in Keighley ,
There is also a Filling station here with mini market if anyone needs to stock up with anything.

we are Looking at leaving here at 8.30 , We will then be riding the B roads up to Hawes and should arrive here at about 10.30 for a breakfast stop.

The Camp site is only half a hour's ride away so we should hope to arrive at about mid day.

Let's keep our fingers crossed for good weather.

ps

A friend as offered the use of Marquee which is set up at a camp site in Dent..if the weather is bad we could aways move to this location if need be.
