    I imagine there are a fair few Midlanders, Welsh and Southern tyre kickers there too.

    ABR festival 2019

    I am going to see the Tenere 700, in the flesh

    However I doubt you will get near getting a test ride on much as there will be loads of people wanting to ride the bikes

    However I am mainly going to ride with the local TRF lads and see/ride the Cotswolds lanes and try my bike around the trail & Enduro courses (I am not taking a GS)

    Going with an open mind which usually works best

    It will be good to see the Inch Perfect lads too who are running the Trials course

    Funny old world isn't it ..... only in the GS world do you get the snidey comments
    On the ABR forum, plus the Enduro & Trials ones you don't get any such goings on

    Hey-Ho

    Hey-Ho
    Not sure what snide comments you are referring to? i was basing my comments on my own experience of last years event - It was shite...

    Hey-Ho
    That’ll be because, contrary to some opinions, this forum is very lightly moderated whereas the ABR one is far stricter. I was given a warning by pm from a moderator after asking why someone had been banned for what most would consider a very inconsequential comment.

    It’s a shame they don’t worry about pm’s because I was subjected to a torrent of abuse for pointing out a few things that can cause problems on a certain bike when a guy asked for buying advice. I hadn’t realised he was asking because he was considering buying one of said motorcycles from another forum member

    Jeezus, don't let Warlord find out.

    Hopefully you've de-badged all your riding kit.

    Just seen on FB

    Patsy Quick and Desert Rose racing has had 5 bikes nicked overnight from the festival site - parked outside her truck whilst she & the team slept inside

    Not good
    I thought security would be tighter

    Taking a bigger chain now

    Bloody Hell!!! That's not good, you don't go to a bike event and expect anything to get lifted... Poor show on the organisers side... Do they have ANY security there?
