Default How not to ride your motorcycle at AR14

TOGMIE and GM are technically ride outs which are annual.

TOGMIE is regional.

The other two are annual nationals.

Surely we have one official AR then everything else is just another regional rideout but open to all as it's organised by one region? Some happen to also be annual such as Shakedown, TOGMIE and Viney's in the south.

That aside, surely the whole point of killing the wildlife its too have enough left to throw on the BBQ afterwards.

I'm nother getting into such rideout triviality.

There's was plenty to go round. You just had to pick it out of the scenery.

There were some suicidal sheep in Wales, just standing there looking stupid and biding their time waiting for a bike to come along before deciding that was the moment to jump into the road. Idiot creatures.

That was just it's stomach contents. You could get a right good portion of rump at one side of the road, and some racks of ribs and the front end was left in the chevrons in the middle of the road. Plenty of choice cuts

About 60mph, kitted up with camping gear.

The two travelling with me got a good show from behind

It jumped from higher above the road from a wall iirc. Then landed on my front wheel. I had furry wheel rims for months!

Does a holed radiator count? was out with the GM lot and ended up with a hole in it. Pulled over at the side of the road in a cloud of steam. fixed it will a bit of chewing gum to get me home.

Trying to clean that off after was a right pain in the ass.
