Tony.. with your addiction to touratech is only a matter of time before you switch to the darkside  :038:.
when you sit on a sports bike you feel special...when you sit on an adventure bike you feel something special is going to happen!!

Should come on a SW Crew Rideout... I think our record was about 20 on a run to Wales.... More than a Mega meet..!! :492:

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.

Well we've got perfect roads for the Tigers around here.  :001:

We've been a bit quiet in these parts of late, but hopefully normal service will be resumed soon and we'll get out for more rides through the winter. I'm not sure if another SW360 will be run just yet, but our rides always involve food of some sort - often a fry-up at Rt38 Diner or maybe a pasty run to Phelps.

Will be looking out for the next ride out especially if it involves food .
That's if I haven't switched to the darkside :017:

Phelps well thats a 1/2 mile ride-out for me. Perhaps something a little longer.

I have a chippy 50 yards from my house but it didn't stop us doing over 150 mile round trip in the evening for fish and chips...... :164: :164:

Our average rides are around 180 - 200 miles on the Winter day runs and anything around the 400 - 500 in the Spring/Summer...

We don't tend to to do half hour Sunday runs for a brew... :492:

As Ming says the Thursday night fish N Chip runs are around 150 Miles!!

We spit in the face of Dorset/Witshire/Hampshire.. Black mountains and Brecon Beacons are my favourite day runs.. (You've been warned!)

Cornwalls a mere tyre scrubbing exercise, we use Devon as a fuel stop....  :001:But Devon does harbour some lovely muddy lanes.

Keep an eye on the Rideout threads for up n coming events... along with the Exeter RAT Runs from Bridge Motorcycles.

We could look at that after the New Year.... You can explain the rules T800XC  :001:
