    ------

    Good news to those who are interested in a Triumph factory tour. The Triumph factory can do a tour on the 15th of December. There are other dates but for various reasons they will be difficult to arrange.

    Can you please say which date you would prefer and we'll arrange the date that suits the most interested. As Triumph charges for the tour we'll need £10 to guarantee your place on the tour, so you'll need to commit to the agreed date. There are four places per allocation and 18 places on a tour, so if there are more than four people we will make a separate application.

    If Triumph are unable to fulfill our request for any reason, we'll re-schedule to the next convenient date as possible or refund your payment of £10 back to yourselves providing triumph refund the money to us. Also it'll be your responsibility arriving to the factory on time.

    To get the ball rolling below is a list of members who can attend with the dates beside their name.

    This thread will be closed within a few days so reply now, the £10 will be requested via paypal as soon as we have enough numbers to make an application.

    Put me down for any of the dates (at the moment) however that can change rapidly.. So I would assume like most of you the sooner it is confirmed the better and I can book my day off.
    Many thanks

  6. Thanks for the Pm Craig. As you can probably tell I do not get a lot of time to be online right now.
    Unfortunately I will not be able to make that date. Hope you all have a fun and interesting time.

  15. Do we have a confirmation on this yet?

    I.E is there a pre factory meet point for brekkie or something planned?

    Dunno, Craig's the bossman on this. I'm meeting andysjt at 8am at J1 M54 (Cannock) and then hopping onto the M6, where I guess we'll need to do some m-way filtering through Wolverhampton and Brum, and then onto the M69 up to Hinckley. ETA - about 9.30ish I guess. I don't know Hinckley at all - anyone know if there's a greasy spoon nearby?

    I'm not sure on what everyones plan is to be honest, the main thing is to be there by 10am. I'm leaving bright and early south of london via car, I think I'm going to be pushed for time judging on "Top Gears" comment on the 20 miles of average speed cameras set at 50mph but should make it. Though, greasy spoon is always a winner if there's one near the factory :p
     
  18. My brothers currently seeing a girl who lives in rugby - i will get on the case with sorting out a RV.

    Mines a Bacon and Egg sarnie with HP sauce, coffee 1 sugar lol!

    Well excited now!

    Craig - does the tour start at 10 or is that just the rondy-voo?

    All right for you in the cage but we on bikes will need a bit of defrost time :lol:
