Default Re: Must haves and no-no's for AR11

For me, the brief I've been working to is that someone should be able to rock up on the Friday on a restricted SV after passing their test in the morning and not feel too uncomfortable while we're out. Failing a nicer way of describing it, that should be the highest barrier to entry.

I agree with both of the previous two comments.
The rideout itself is fun in its own way, but is not the best ride in the world as far as speed and blasting around is concerned. I think Orose sums up the standard perfectly.

In addition, there are many, many ways to enjoy riding your bike. The AR is just one of them

I find it just as much fun having a "slow" rideout with a big group as having a "fast" one, its all about the camaraderie!

Will there be a covered area for folk who don't want to crowd/won't fit into the bar?

Having a fire pit again would be good, especially if we're lucky enough to get decent weather.

There won't be a fire at this AR. I very much doubt the site owner would be happy with it.
Although I seem to remember sitting next to a rather toasty huge BBQ thing last time, with living flame.

At Wem they were happy as long as it was off of the ground, so a farmer friend was going to lend me his digger bucket. We hadn't yet worked out how to support it when the good folk of the org decided nay.
