    My knowledge of that area is probably the same as yours, Keith, so I'm open to suggestions from others. If we can get some ideas of who wants to go, and where people want to go, we can then decide who's going to lead, depending on road knowledge.

    Sammy Millers was an initial thought, but it's not that far away, so with me in front, we could end up going round and round in circles, then ending back at the campsite by 2pm.

    I'd rather let someone local, that knows all the decent back roads, lead the ride, but it looks like you lot are expecting me to lead.

    I don't have a problem leading a ride out, JB. But if I do, maybe some more familiar roads would be the better idea.

    If people want to go to the New Forest, then we need someone that knows the roads, if no one is fussed where we go, I'll sort a ride on some roads that I know.

    So, on that note, who's in?

    I'm fairly sure there have been some good road rides at previous Hograosts, you may get some pointers or at least identify others who have led past rides by searching old ride reports from older hograosts.

    I will see if I can get down to join your ride Nutty.

    I have good local knowledge, What's the destination then?

    I'll gladly shout out some road numbers for the squadron leader to punch into his twatnav

    Here's a 120 miler, maybe needs a bit of work in the bottom right corner, with a bit more in the New Forest, around Lyndhurst and Beaulieu


    Something to knock about



    Took me 10 mins on Mapsource and I don't even live there

    Thanks JB, but if I'm leading, it'll be on roads that I know well.

    Maybe across to Goodwood, taking in some Hampshire and West Sussex roads.

    Why?

    You ride an adventure bike - make it an Adventure

    Put that route in the SatNav and just follow the arrows/directions

    Hard?

    You won't be going over 60, so plenty to time to follow the route

    Where's the fun in doing roads you know ?

    That would be perfect. But it's the wrong day.

    Brilliant

    With the most awesome GS yet built and the latest and most brilliant BMW GPS, what could go wrong - it'll be a breeze

    Are you using the 'drop-off' system?
