I live in Taunton and would be up for going out for a road ride (as I'm still to scout out the lanes round here) but it all depends on whether I can get the bike back together by the weekend... :?

Were you thinking Saturday? I'm on shift all day Sunday.
You wouldn't by any chance be the guy from Jersey with the gsa800 (I think) who I keep getting absolutely paraletic at bike rallies with but who's name I can never remember would you? :lol:

But either way, preferably off road but I'm easy either way. I mainly need an excuse to get away from all the kids and some seat time on my new KTM. Saturday could work for me as long as it wasn't the crack of dawn as I probably won't be getting down there on the Friday night until about midnight.

That'd be me! Same again at the Midlands rally this year? :lol:

Like I say, happy to go out for a spin if the bike's working. Not much local lane knowledge though. Perhaps someone else on here can help out in that respect? :idea:

And a later start sounds fine to me - gives me time to get over any potential Friday night hangover.

No Midlands for me this year unfortunately, I'm doing the Rydale round in the atrc thing.

I've got to get this KTM back together before then but just need seat time on it really after that. I'm happy to grab some maps of you want to explore :lol:

Right. Went out for a 30 mile ride today and nothing has fallen off the bike so I'll take that as a sign that it's good to go. 8-)

Will have a look at the maps tonight. Happy to just make it up as we go on Saturday of course.

Let me know what your plans are mate.

Cheers

Very annoyingly going to have to rain check mate :oops:

Something about buggering off early and it being my nephew's birthday. Apparently his owners, I mean parents, might take it the wrong way.

Or so the Mrs tells me :lol:
