Name tags are indeed a good idea, showing both user name and real name. Rutland is very nice indeed.

Ooh I've plenty of ideas but as I'm limited for time at the mo.....


2 Ride outs, Southern area and Northern Area, as there are just so many active members in the South.

Most "clubs" do have an nnual event which is a bit of a party, so I'm with Viney on an annual gathering.

I think an informal comittee of "organisers" may be a good idea.

Anyway, back to the trade show.......

Bad influence? ....What you implying? (i had to slow you down going home )

Everyone had a great time, noone got into bother with the fuzz...so as far as i was concerned, noone broke any laws lol
(I think there would have been an outcry if i would have started sticking people on for illegal plates, exhausts etc lol) although i do have photographic evidence lol

I think it would be good if it were more of a weekend event, I got to say hello to a few people but due to the fact my memory is poo I still canít place faces to usernames.

I loved the route and the speed was ok on the first leg (I was around the middle of the group) and a bit more relaxed on the second leg but the first stage was too long and I (among others) was getting quite uncomfortable, lets face it the SV especially the pointy one isn't the most comfortable of bikes.

I also like the idea of the gathering rather than just a ride out.

With regards to the AR...

Personally for me, i would only choose one to go to, due to work commitments (its a pain getting time off) and i think having one event makes it just that little more special...more people make the effort to get time off for the one main event each year...if you see where i am coming from.

I camped (thanks to Mr & Mrs Big Ape) on the weekend and enjoyed every minute of it, so i think a long weekend would be really good, a chance for everyone to get together and have a good time.

Name tags..afew people mentioned this on the day that it would have been useful and i agree, i did notice afew peeps who just stayed beside there bikes and didnt socialise.. maybe having name tags will make interaction easier...or a few pints lol

As for the actual ride...well i felt, either it was a tad too long or there was not enough stops, at some points, i couldnt feel my right hand or my backside and i was hurting badly that i considered pulling over. The pace, well this was down to each individual, and as i think Greg mentioned, those who wanted to have alittle more of a challenge kept dropping off for the marker system and then making their way back up the pack (Big Ape or Sid Squid for example)...but i must say that riding with 70 bikes was fantastic...and hearing everyones engines ticking over...and the look of villagers faces as we rode through.

This rideout is becoming not so unoffical after all lol

Great weekend...look forward to next year!

Regards

Fraser

I agree that one big event is the best idea as although it might seem fairer or more convenient to have north and south meets the reality (I suggest) is that the whole thing will be diluted and nowhere near as much fun.

Regional groups do have their own regular meets and the idea of the Annual Ride-out is to bring everyone together as one big family.

I think extending the event to a whole weekend with a far larger social scene is by far the best choice. However the ride should certainly be a major part of it otherwise it would seem somewhat strange to have the AR without getting on our bikes and actually riding them!.

I'm certainly up for a Fri/Sat/Sun long weekend.

A full weekend of fun and frivolity sems to be the only way to go, Apart from those that were camping and 1 or 2 others i don't think i could put many faces to names.

But there's gotta be a rideout in there some where, all those bikes spread out along the road was an awesome sight and sound.

A BBQ would be cool too, Baldymans skills with his sausages would become legendary.

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.

I think it is all there !!
