    Well, who is up for it?

    No idea on route, distance or anything like that.

    Just putting the feelers out. It would most likely be a Southern meet, possibly starting at the Ace Cafe in London, then maybe heading down to Brighton for the day? Go for some lunch, then back up to Ace Cafe?

    Could be a good day :)

    Final plans

    Depart from H Cafe at 1000

    H Cafe
    Oxford Rd
    Dorchester
    Wallingford, Oxfordshire OX10 7LY


    Then head to Loomies... Easier this way, then decide if we fancy the full run to Brighton or not :)

    Loomies Cafe
    Alton Road
    West Meon, Hampshire GU32 1JX

    it's a long way away at the moment, but count me in.

    Sounds good to me. Although, a bit close to London for my liking :p but i'm sure it'd be good fun.

    Are you going to build up a list of people (and their bikes, so we can easily determine who's who)?

    Also I need to use up my MSV Track Day Voucher by May next year so maybe some people might be interested in that too? :D

    Count me in for sure! Although would prefer H-Cafe or somewhere not in London as a starting point.. I hate getting to the Ace Cafe.

    BMW S1000RR

    Also.. Fireskull.. I would be up for a trackday too.

    Oi, shut your face :p

    I rode it to work today, oh god it's so much fun to chuck around!

    The power is pleasing too! Even in urban mode I had the front up and the traction control stepping in!

    I am, without a shadow of a doubt, very pleased with it so far. I'm glad I went for it instead of another sports bike. Already organising with mates a trip to Catalunya for the Moto GP next year.

    I've been looking at rough routes of what to do...

    H Cafe to Brighton is a bit far (no motorways) so would need a stop mid way as it's a good 2 and a half hours and the older boys on sports bikes will be needing a hip stretch :p Not me on my 'armchair' muhahahaha.

    So, I was thinking of meeting at H Cafe in Oxford say around 0800/0830 and head off around 0900. If we stopped off somewhere, I think we could be in Brighton for midday. Do like we did last time. A stop off midway at a random village and just relax and walk around for 20 minutes.

    Instead of going straight into Brighton, we could head towards Beach head and get some decent group photo's and enjoy the brilliant roads. Then head to Brighton from there?

    Then, grab a tasty lunch in Brighton and go from there really.

    Saves going into London and some of the roads will be brilliant on the ride down.

    Brighton.... an apt place for Multistrada riders.... :D

    And I could ride for hours, the K5 is comfy for a tall rider, but the fuel consumption is another matter ;)
