Hey folks, have PM'd Derek that I'm busy on the 31st but I don't want to be left out of anything else that might be happening around the SE for the big trailies - I'll be up for it if anyone wants some company another time.

Sorry to bail at very short notice, but I've had a few things come up since this was mooted - mostly putting my house on the market for viewings this weekend & some bronchitis! Merrit Tyres in Bookham also failed to phone me back on the tyres I ordered too - who else fits tyres round here please? Ho hum.

Hope you all have a good meet-up & ride-out before the Siberian weather hits properly later in the weekend. All the best.

I use ATS. AFAIK any depot deals with bike tyres and the prices match Watlings who would be my other choice. Let your fingers do the walking.

Some pics of today.

Hi there,

For all those who wanted in but couldn't come here are some pictures I took today. There wasn't many opportunities to take pics so there are only a few taken at the end of the trails.
I don't know who was there from this forum, if you want to identify yourself it would be good as I don't think I know any other names apart from Derek!
I had to leave the group at midday because my rear brake pads had suddenly dissappaeared!
Cheers,
Ernesto (800GS)

Sorry not to make it, I was a muppet and didn't set my alarm, that's the problem with these distant meets, I need to get up early.


That GS is getting some attention, I would have liked to see one in the flesh.

Not as nice as a Tenere of course

They're all wondering why it hasn't fallen to bits yet.

Hi guys,
Really enjoyed meeting everyone, and riding the lanes, mud glorious mud Next time I will stay for longer and do a few more lanes, and be better prepared.

I'm one on the nice Orange KTM adv

Trail ride today [sat]

Big thanks to the guys who did make it today. we all seemed to enjoy the lanes without to much bother apart from the 6" nail in my rear[tyre!]
Hope to see you all again maybe in a different area, keep me posted please as I am keen to get a regular meet going.
Any reason for the pasted out number plates in pics?

I've seen people hide theirs before so I wasn't sure if the guys would like to have their number plates on the web so I blurred them out.

Let me know whey you guys are out again, I am defenitively up for it!

Cheers.

Ernesto

Yeah, I can do a burger & coffee and talk bollox, midday at Wessons on either Feb 8th, 14th or 15th. Those are my next weekend days off work.

Send an e-mail to hgmillichap@tiscali.co.uk and I'll send you a photo of me so that you know which ugly bastard is me.

Hey Derek, thanks for organising the trip around the lanes. It was great fun battling the mud and ruts on these big bikes! I'm definitely up for more trips out. Good to meet everyone that came along. Mark (950SE)
