Understand

Hi Xander

Fully understand, especially as you are a 3 hours plus run on a good day to the Ace.

We'll meet up soon enough and a good place may be at the roving bike meets around Worcs and Glos that happen on most Wednesday nights over the Summer.

Well organised and over a 1000 bikers at some of them. Have a look at: Bikers Nite plus it's all in aid of the County Air Ambulance.

Cheers


Chris

I (as one other member posted ) am not one for too many meetups but rather enjoy rideouts with a bit of green lane adventure added into the mix !

If anyone is interested I have a great 9 page route ( thru the south east of Derbyshire ) loaded on the roadbook ......... I have only done about 4 pages so far due to one 'bad lane' .......

I will be going back soon to complete the route ...........

I did the HUMM and then took in Europe and Morocco last summer

I am Jon and I am on a KTM 640 Adv
I'm very interested in some greenlaning - I have quite a few routes mostly around the midlands at the moment I have an Aprilia Pegaso 650 but set-up for some serious off roading so would be a good match to a KTM 640... let me know. I'm in coventry (Ian)

Anything doin ?

Anything happening with regards to rides and meets in the Midlands ?

Last time I was here I was on a 640 ADV but now on an AT .....

Maybe a bi weekly meet on a week night / afternoon would be a good idea in the Midlands .... Away from the Sports Bike speed Freaks ....

Or a Sat morning meet/ride at a diff location every other week ?

I'll start it off ...

Cannock Chase Visitors Centre 10am Sat 31st OCT Rain or Shine ! ( Or Snow ! )

So dedided to do my billy no mates ride out, went across to Ashbourne then to Monyash where i had lunch,then went down into Bakewell Matlock Bath and then back home. 140 miles of beautiful autumn colour and scenery.

Sorry i missed you maybe there will be another time, but thanks anyway i doubt i would have bothered on such a drizzly morning if it had not been arranged.

Thanks Rob

meeting place suggestion

The cafe at Quatt (Just outside Bridgenorth on the Bridgenorth-Kidderminster road A422 I think... )
Full of bikes at weekends, great place for a cuppa and an oggle at the bikes till everyone arrives before setting off into borders
