Wheres the route?

Bazza are you bringing the CB up?
Whilst the roads there are great, the road down is pants and I'm currently thinking of the Pan for this one? It did ok last year, even the airborn bits......

Yes the CBF is coming, it can keep up with this old farts on the their lazy V twins.

Im still working on route as i want it decent enough for everybody to enjoy ( even if they come on a pan or a cb) and i want to include the lakes district aswell as other routes not included so far
It is a ball ache but im trying my hardest to please everybody so bare with me a bit longer and your wait will be worth it
Anyway there will be some sort of reward for some individuals that im working on ...and some more ideas im playing with atm and hope to achieve what i set out to achieve
Thank you for your patience

quick update my mate is not coming anymore so that opens up a space for anybody interested
the preliminary route I have in mind is as follows:
starting at the pub going to hawes,bainbridge,aysgarth,thoralby,kidstones,buckden,ketlewell,grassington,hebden,skyreholme,barden,bolton bridge,thorlby,haliefield,capham,ingleton,
I would like to include the lake district as there are epic roads but I'm not sure if we should go all in or just cut a bit of the run as the lakes cover around 380 mile run I think its a bit too much for myself and others so suggestions are more than welcome
not long now until may cant wait

there will be a small award ceremony that I want to do for all those attending and people that helped me in the past and still do put up with me :thumbup:

380 miles is way to much, 180-200 is more like it.
I've now gone all Europen and bought an Aprilia RSV Mille, the
Storm is now sold.

If the position isn't filled, I will fit some money to cover the space. It would be unfair for you to cover the cost.

Don't want to tread on anyone's toes, Just trying to help out.
I've worked a route out to include a part of the Lakes, about 180 to 200 miles all in, starting from Hawes and ending up back at the digs, which will allow anyone still wanting more to be able to play on the Ribble Head/Hawes /Aysgarth/Layburn road, this route is mainly heading North West and West.
If people would rather head East and stay in Yorkshire, then I can sort a route out up to Whitby and back, or I can sort a route out for both and see which way the better weather is on the day, what do ya think guys ?

Kev, personally, I would rather have as many options as possible: if "It's black and fekin wet over there," I'd rather not go there just because that is the route we planned. :thumbup: :thumbup:
