Yamahammer that'd be really cool. I know some people being two bikes... So someone may have an extra bike for you to ride??? If I'm able to trailer down.... I may have a 2nd bike in tow... But a little early to tell at this point.

That would truly be awesome, but i dont think i could accept that, its the dragon, im new, anything could happen.

But if you insist i may take the keys off you!!! ;)

Just to clarify with everyone, i am not coming to show you how the uk does it, im coming to meet you lot and to ride as a group, no debate being started just putting everyones minds at rest that i intend to just come and be a part of it, not to show off.

I made a thread any help with this would be great.

I'm in, probably friday to sunday. The plan is to trailer over. More details when date is closer. Anyone from my side or on the way that wants to hop on, let me know. Should I be worried that the lodge will fill up soon? When should the reservations be finalized by?

*EDIT* Definately arrive by Wednesday, probably quite late though.

He would have stopped before the truck had he used his handlebar brakes instead of his sliding-on-the-ground-sideways brakes.

Some book the week or two after the meet, but the majority start booking around January when vacation time starts over. My works year end is end of Sept., so on Oct 1st I put in for three days off (Wed-Fri) for the meet.

To all the new comers, if you can swing it, it's best to get there Wed. or Thurs. Just my opinion. I'm there Wed - Sun and time still flies by.

Yah, me too although I'm not sure I'm ready to accept that it's the geezer group, I'll call it 'less agressive', yup sounds better some how.

Sorry.. it's already been set in stone.. it's definitely the Geezer group.. There will also be a "less aggressive group".. yet just a tad younger... They may ride just slightly ahead of the Geezers :dunno
