Having just done two large group rideouts in quick succession i'd like to put my thoughts up. the thundercat ride was on a saturday, most people rode down on the fri and stayed in B and Bs . The ride started on the sat at 9.45, break at 10.30 - 11.00, for 30 mins, on to the lunch stop at around 1.00 for 1 hr, then another stop at 3.00 and back to the start at 4.30. Total distance was 180 miles. every body met up in a pub in the evening where a buffet had been arranged from 7.30. peeps then stayed sat night and went home on the sunday. This gave a more relaxed ride and no aches and pains from having travelled 3-4oo miles in one day!. also it was more of a social occasion. people from up scotland and down south have also arranged their own rides for later on in the season. Perhaps this would be a better format for our rideouts. Camping is also a possibility to keep costs down.

Triumph Sprint 955i, 2003, Datatool alarm, Scottoiler, Touring screen and R&G's coming soon.
