I'm not trail riding the Scram just yet. There are lots of things to do first before it's really ready. Not least get some TCK80s fitted.
However, if you want talk bollox in the pub then I go in the Dripping Spring, Tower road from time to time. e-mail direct is hgmillichap@tiscali.co.uk or phone 721889

Well I'm deffinately going to the Stella and I'll most likely be staying in Briancon rather than Bardonnechia. Mainly because I find the latter a bit crap really. Bokki camping is very primitive and too far into town etc.
Going with a mate on a Tiger so will probably take my Tiger rather than the Scrambler.
Routes down? Sorry, but we've tried this groups thing with people we don't know and get very frustrated with some people when they start faffing around all the time. You know the sort of thing...turning up to start the ride with an empty fuel tank. Think that 200 miles a day is a good days ride.
Of course, if we get to meet before then and get out and ride together a bit then the above could all change.

Right then your on, when we going to meet up as I see you are in St Leonards your pretty close to some great big trail bike roads, so what about meet up at Horam,the old Ogri cafe, Iwas there today and bumped into some GS,ers. Last Sept rode to Pyenees doing 2 450 mile days with not a motorway in sight apart from blast to Cambrai out of Calais. Spent 5 days on bike doing trails and great tarmac roads with no rest till ferry from Bilbao home.My mate could not stand the pace and had to go shopping in Andorra for a day! Like the sound of Briancon.

At present the KTM's waiting for an exhaust manifold which cracked on way home Sunday and have been told it may take a week for new one to arrive,so unless I can get it welded it's out of commission for this weekend.
I will get back to you

Me and Kerry are planning to come up on the 31st, but just for a meet up and a breckie, as I think the lanes will be a bit wet for two's up!

hi Bob, Anytime you wanna go out let me know, how are you on the hants/berks lanes as they would involve less travelling for you and I know them pretty well?

Hello

I'm in Kent and have a Yamaha Tenere.

I might be up for the Boxhill run on the 31st if there's still space.
