2017 Summer UK Ride Out/Meet

#1 Post by Vin » Fri Jan 06, 2017 6:30 am

Hi All,

Here is the thread to organise and arrange contact names and date for a ride out/meet to Stratford-Upon-Avon (birthplace of William Shakespeare!) one day this year to be decided.

We don't get many chances to get a good gathering of 500's together so please keep this get together in mind and I will try and suggest some dates when the weather has more of a chance of being good to us :smt017 Please reply to this thread if interested so that I can get an idea of numbers.

If you guys are Gloucester way why not meet in Abergavenny bus stop, and head for mid Wales loop, Rhayader , Llandovery (west end for grub) and black mountains and back, be willing to meet up with a few friends on smokers and take you guys around if you don't know the area.

Hi Vin

I will try and make it.

it's worth posting it on the RD/RZV500 UK Owners Club Facebook Page as well.

Rather than me suggesting a date why don't we all throw a few dates in the pot and work from that?

I will start the ball rolling June 17th

When we have a decided date and preferably an alternative date just in case of the unpredictable English weather then those interested could maybe post a route plan that they would normally take so maybe several stop points can be arranged?

I'm open to suggestions guy's? don't want to make things too difficult but until I have an idea where everyone is setting off from and the route that they would normally take (preferably good biker roads) we can not arrange anything.

Yes this date is fine for me and happy to meet in Daventry and ride across to Stratford.

Thanks

I have a pass for 17th June and can join Podman and Ade.
Do they still allow bikes to gather in Stratford or is there a suitable Biker Café or Meet around there, or somewhere equally central, we could meet at?
As we will be coming from all directions it would be good to set a time to arrive at Stratford (or other) so everyone can plan their set off time. Could even all go for a short circular ride to annoy the Fuzz :grin:
Once the details are firm, I will create an event in the RD Owners Group on Facebook, if I can work out how to do it!
Cheers Geoff

Plenty of bike specific parking in the centre Geoff, a tour around the place smoking out Bill Shakespears place sounds good as well too...Look forward to hooking up on the day, shall we all aim for a 12pm meet up?
