Thumbs up Early Birds = mouthfull of worms..!!

A tad early this but nothing like a bit of commitment eh..! Can't get to Lumb Farm (out uk) so looking forward to this also, a prime chance to show off the efforts made and test the pre-trip bike, hoprfully encourage other trip (xllentadventures.co.uk) members to attend and have a "Gaggle" of XL's in the camping field....!!!!!! All the best Gabe..

I'll be doing the full size range this year

Small - my Cornwall meet in Feb
Medium - Booked in for Bristol
Large - Barring disasters I will be at Ripley too.

Mark is certainly booked in for Ripley, I know he is keen to go to Bristol but had still to ask the question last time I spoke to him.

I also have clearance for a 6 week trip in 2013 although if Mark's Olympic tickets don't come through that might become 2012. Just got to work out how far we can reasonably go in 6 weeks.

Just signed up - missed Ripley this year!

Just signed up for the Autumn meet - need to make up for minor disaster taking she who must be obeyed as a pillion to France for the first time two weeks ago. Weather and location in Brittany amazing - 3 and half hours of driving rain from Portsmouth to home in the driving rain damn nearly got me divorced!!!! Won't be doing that again..... Will it be sunny in September then????
