I guess that's the one I marked, because some turned off without telling anyone, the correct procedure would have been to stop, flag people on and then advise the tail end Charlie, or maybe it was a different one, hard to say there's been a few over the years on various forums, doesn't matter how many times it's explained there's always (at least) one who just does his own thing  :015:

Almost as good was my riding on a recent Triumph RAT run. Didn't listen to the pre brief where it was stated that all junctions would be marked APART from the entry onto a dual carriageway as it was deemed too dangerous to wait on the edge of the slipway........and I went straight on into Plymouth city centre like the Pied Piper with a load of rats following me, whilst everyone else zoomed up to Liskeard and lunch :138:
Here comes Mr Clumsy........

coming back to the original topic guys:
I'd love to know beforehand where the Saturday tour will go as I am already planning my trip from Germany and I have planned a little loop in Wales already, so if we go there on Saturday I'll change my plan.
Live is too short to drink bad wine or to ride bad bikes.

As things stand we will be doing a large loop using some of the best local roads I know and enjoy, we will dip into the other side of the river but not into deepest Wales (we've been there twice before) so Derchef feel free to plan your adventure into Wales. As said originally this is not a tour of the Cotswold villages (we also did that on a mini-meet), but nice twisty roads.

I am doing a full run of the route this Saturday with a group of friends so that will give me a good idea of timings etc.

thank you for your support

We will be leaving the hotel at 9am, please ensure you have a full tank before we leave - there is a shell garage a few hundred yards down the road that most will be passing to get to the hotel. the pumps on the left only dispenses "v-power"

The hotel has a car park at the front and rear, given that we are on the outskirts of a city center please make sure you have bike security (disc lock, chains etc.) which ever is your preferred choice. the security of your bike is YOUR responsibility and not mine or the Hotels.

thank you for reading this
