I'm taking my R100GS, and the talk is of trails especially suited to the larger machines.....Windy's 990 included!

October 12-15th is the date planned for Operation Alternator.

We refer to that type of lane as "tarmac road" in Oxfordshire.

Here you go. No BB this year, but Timpo & co miraculously came up with a worthy alternative.

Please post here if you're interested and maybe he will give you more details.

if that's what will be going on, I'm very interested :)
it looks like knobbies are required? or would dualsport tires be sufficient?

If we can stitch something worthwhile together or nick the tracks off someone else, October 2013. That's for weekends, large group, a campsite and beer. Maybe somewhere in between there's a one day ADV ride. Feel free to get it going, we don't have a copyright .

The route you led us on was good Burt - that was two days

don't forget you and anyone else from the Capital of Beer is welcome to come riding in Kent anytime you want - were just 30 mins from Calais - suitable trails for big bikes
