It's on my 2014 to do list. No real reason for not doing it, just too many other bikey things to fit in and a limited time and cash to do it with.

I am a bit like g00ner really, done two events, the K2 in Kielder and the Centennial in Carlisle, had a fantastic time, best off road riding weekends ever, and as Mike54 just said yes its VERY addictive, but cash, and the shortage of it is the only factor in stopping me doing more, but I will be back next year, hopefully the ones local to me and some in Wales.

Cheers
Tommo

Any body want to but together a team of first timers? Safety in numbers sort of thing? Big(ish) bikes and goal is to have a good time in the North Of England?

Truly Dave if you post on here or the rallymoto forum you will get like minded folks to ride with. Wilso's first rally was on his 950se and he is hooked, he just came along with us and learnt about cramp in the legs, oh how we chuckled. :laugh:

Dave, I'm betting that the boys from the rally moto club would put on a "taster day" if enough people were interested ie chats about what goes on, a load of riding on the kind of terrain etc.
