SW Crew Ride Up Meet & Route...
« on: May 01, 2015, 06:11:41 PM »
Suggest meeting at McDonalds Tiverton for a cheeky breakfast for 8am on the Friday then a blat up the M5 and A303, M3 and around the M25 and up to Norfolk..

Stopping for a break and fuel before we hit the M25 at Fleet services..

Should be at the hotel for mid afternoon..  :031:

It's a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you're ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.

How about Morgan's Cafe just off J27 instead of McD's? Not sure what time he'll be open though.

We'll head towards Oxford and then Cambridge as this is out most direct route avoiding the motorways.

By the look of your route you will be some where close to Bedford .... Do you have any times for that area and may be I can meet and join you on the ride up. I will be coming up from Harpenden.

If you want a stop in the Oxford area the is a Triumph Dealers with a cafe attached on the Aylesbury side of Oxford that I have used on some of my ride outs, basic but good.

I would join you but I'm taking delivery of my new Tex1200 at Jack Lilley en-route Thursday.  Reckon we will leave there around 14:30 and arriving in Diss Thursday at about 18:00. Look forward to seeing you all Friday.

We are meeting with members from South Wales at J9 M5 then heading across from there, apparently a route has been planned but unsure exactly which roads. I'll try to find out........
