    Hi all,

    Weather permitting I'm hoping to get out tomorrow. Meeting at Foxes Diner on the A4130 for 10am then prob gonna take a gentle ride over to George Whites in Swindon the back way through Abingdon - Wantage - Hungerford - Marlborough - Calne - Lyneham - Wooton Bassett - Swindon.

    Not sure how we'll come back but maybe down the A420. If you spot us there will be me on my Masterbike, a yellow & Black gixxer 600, Aprilia factory (also yellow) or Trumpet Tiger, and maybe a yellow/black 999 Duc.

    Maybe see someone, feel free to tag along more the merrier and all that.

    My bike hasn't seen daylight for over a month now though so it won't be the most blisteringly quick ride ever but I just want to get out so fingers crossed on the weather!

    The guy on the 999 is by far the quickest rider, and he can afford the fines so I'll let him get on with it lol ;)

  4. Hmm how organised is your group, sometimes not the best idea to have the quickest at the front.

    Slower peeps further back can make mistakes trying to keep up.

    Not trying to criticise or cast aspersions at all now.

    :lol: this country is becoming a nanny state with the lead pack rider issue, such nonsense. Sounds like the 675 is overdue a quick blast to blow the dust out of the can. The 999 is a great bike, like your thinking with the pack leader! :p Hope tomorrow holds out on good weather! :)

    We're pretty relaxed about it all and just let him go. We generally know where we are going but if we're turning off the road or he doesn't know where he's going he just waits at the junction for us all to catch up then off we all go again.

    It's definetely a NO PRESSURE to keep up group, makes for a relaxed ride. We have to many differing abilities in our little group to let it effect us and ride beyond our ability level.

    I hoped to get out this weekend but it didn't happen - on the bike I mean. Didn't get up till 10 on Sat, then was dad's taxi, home for 4, had to go out at 5.15 - we went to a drinks do where we dropped off the daughter, and then to a ball in Ellesmere - didn't get home till 2.15am and I think it was about 3 that I eventually drifted off. So got up late today, oh shit we're late for yet more drinkies, called in at some friends at English Frankton (north Shropshire) to fetch the child, quick shop in Sainsbos, and then to Dobbies to get a Christmas tree. Didn't get home till 5pm or so, just had a feed, and now daughter wants to put up the bloody tree and I'm fit for nothing.
