Small chance I will, mainly because of other plans.

Moreover, there's now your Brexit : probably long waiting queues at the ferries to be expected (I think I'll at least first have a look at what this results into) ? And as I'm not riding my K1300S any longer, I may feel a little more "outsider" also because of that   :)

Since we're voluntarily riding German bikes, I would expect all members to be pro-Europe. I'll park it there, in case Rae shoots me for disturbing the thread.  :-X
Would be good to see you if you can make it over.

Do we have to hand 'em in if we ever leave the EU? I mean, not very British is it.   :)

Well, better than nothing : you'd still have Triumph. Makes me think of this (images of a trip I did in 2016 in Wales and the Peak District)

(I myself, on the contrary, would have to do it with Flandria - a bicycle brand, IF it's still around...)

I believe we have to rename them to AMW, Alsatian Motoren Werke.

I hope you can make it Sudo, and you never know, bikes might get a fast track at the borders :P.

Good news Ady, good to have you onboard. The Hippodrome March would be a good place to meet as we are stopping for coffee there and makes less of a moving target timewise. I'll update post #1

As the group grows in size it becomes increasingly more difficult to keep it together. We may have to employ the Marker / Second Man Drop Off System, which is explained here

Slow riders control the speed of the group and fast riders get to mark most of the corners.
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.
