    Pre trip meeting on Saturday 12th January 2013

    I always have a pre trip meeting where I will go through all the details of the trip for anyone coming or thinking of coming on the TAT. I will do a brief presentation so as not to bore the pants of everyone and do a question and answer session. I find these meetings are really useful as it gets us all on the same page and I'll go through stuff like the routes, insurance, bike prep etc etc.

    This year, i will incorporate both the Alaska and the TAT trips because a lot of what I will go through is broadly similar.

    The meeting will be held at Adventure Bike Warehouse www.adventurebikewarehouse.co.uk as it is in a fairly central location and is the right size:

    Adventure Bike Warehouse
    Unit 5, Agecroft Enterprise Park
    Shearer Way
    Swinton
    Manchester
    M27 8WA


    Gary and Johno are great hosts and they will have all sorts of goodies for sale so you can spend your Christmas money on some important bling. We'll also get a BBQ going with lashings of tea and coffee.

    Some of you will be coming quite a distance and there is a decent little pub/hotel called the Henry Boddington just up the road which is cheap and cheerful http://www.premierinn.com/en/checkHo...hester-swinton. I'll be staying overnight for sure.

    This is an open invitation to attend even if you just want to listen in and have a blather. There will no doubt be folk there from previous trips so you can get loads of information from people who have done it.

    Adventure Bike Warehouse also offer their Morroccan tours and gary will chat about those as well so you will get a good afternoon and evening's talk of brilliant trips to all those places you want to go.

    We will start at 13.00 hrs sharp and if you could indicate whether you will be attending of not either via pm or on this thread that would give us an idea of numbers.

    See you there

    I might pop in for the afternoon as could be in the area on the 12th. Not planning on going but would be good to meet people and hear about the TAT trips and think about doing it some day.

    Just a quick "thank you" to ABW for their hospitality yesterday. Spent the afternoon listening to Chris, eating chilli, drinking tea and talking bollox. Tried on some very nice gear, sat on a gorgeous KTM, drooled over some Ohlins kit from the Kais van, etc, etc.
    What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon?
