    I'd be up to tail end or even lead advanced classes in how to bin it with class.

    Edit - sorry fellas, you'll need someone else (Mav?) to show you how to fall off with style. Apparently I'm on holiday that week.

    Yes please on the more advanced stuff :-)

    Really enjoyed last yeard run. First time I managed to get off road in anger. A real learning experience. Grinning from ear to ear!

    Confirmed so far: Melch, ferrol, Blue, Mikeboy, Bounce, Uncle Fester, PDiddy, and Mr Hall assuming he can find a tie

    Plan of action:

    20 mile road ride to the start (will see if I can find some mud on the way there...)
    Off-road route is a 25 mile loop that we'll do both ways. Very doable on a big bike - I've done it 2 up on the GSA on Tourances.

    Somewhere in the middle we'll have a go at how to smooth out bumpy trails, otherwise known as hover mode


    And how to do wheel spin turns:


    Then head to the pub for lunch:



    And then for the afternoon, and for those that are happy to give it a go, there is a quarry about 15 miles from the pub:



    And then back home in time for tea and medals

    Mav...on a serious note, I'm hatching a plan to bring the KTM to play off road....tank range is circa 80 miles, so can you let me know if there is going to be a fuel station on the route so I can top up...

    Be nice to join in with such a mix of bikes and skills I remember first riding a big bike off road in that Quarry many years back with Burt and it got me hooked

    Just found this thread and would be up for this too so that I could try and hone a few more skills on 'how to fall off without breaking either an indicator lens, fairing panel or mirror'...

    OK - updated list of those confirmed: Melch, ferrol, Blue, Mikeboy, Bounce, Uncle Fester, PDiddy, Speedfour4, IJGser, archad71, and Mr Hall

    That's probably about all we can take without looking like a Harley rally!

    Will take reserves now, in case anyone is not able to make it
