    howdy guys.

    could you let me know once dates are confirmed? i might not be able to do the whole trip (busy time of year to get off) but could deffo join for a couple of days on your leg up from edinburgh (house is ~2 miles from the M90 / 6 miles from south queensferry)

    definitely interested in at least joining for that part

    Hey Rob,

    Sorry for the slow reply, been changing internet providers and always have problems setting these things up on the computer!!

    You will be very welcome if you wanted to come, the more the merrier as they say

    Like I said....the more the merrier, everyone and anyone can jump in and out of this trip, thats the beauty of it, but bring Jaffa cakes as the forfiet for not completing the 4 compass points

    Hmm, just how many jaffa cakes?

    I'm wondering if fuel and accomodation might cost me less

    I may be intersted but as you may or may not know.... I do not own a GS yet nor do I own A BMW but a GS is my next investment.

    Will this make it a problem as I cant go offroad unless this trip is all roads anyway

    More than welcome Stealth, there will be a number of different makes and models there, from customs to enduro. Make the route fit the bikes not the bikes fit the route!

    Last two years have done 2.4-3k meandering around Scotland on GS 1150. Next year will be on a Pan!! Sorry. Brother also has a cafe/ restaurant in Jedbrough so if anyone want to meet there thats can be arranged.

    Cheers.

    Hi everyone,

    Hope you all had a good Christmas, i've had a couple of enquiries again with regards to definite dates and numbers. The 24th April is the definite date we will be meeting at the Green Welly Shop in Tyndrum and starting the journey from there. We will arrange rendezvous points on-route for those who wish to meet up elsewhere.

    People can jump in and jump out of the trip at their convenience, I hope to get a dozen or so people willing to do the complete trip, it might be a little more harrowing to organise digs and stops for a bigger group so i've been advised.

    I think there are about 7 committed already between this forum and other sources. I'm going to close the door on the main group at the end of January or when I have the number we need whichever comes first so I can start organizing digs and get sponsor forms to you all.

    Have a great New Year, any more questions and pm me.

    Charlie

    Sorry everyone,

    As Dakar pointed out, we have discussed changing the start date to the 25th of April instead of the 24th, it was thought to be a good idea because it starts the trip for everyone on a Saturday and finishes on the long May weekend.

    So just to confirm, we will start the journey from the Green Welly shop at Tyndrum on the 25th of April. Times will be confirmed later.

    I'm looking forward to looking at stop overs now, and sorting accommodation, so everyone should get a lot more info soon. I will also be looking for email addresses for anyone confirming they want to come so that I can email sponsor forms this month.

    Cheers

    Charlie

    Hey Dave,

    I really wanted numbers before committing to accommodation, however, I should have our stop overs (where we will stop at the end of each day) confirmed today and by the end of the month, when I gather the final numbers, we can toss about between us the preferred accommodation.
