Is it really an adventure bike if its wheels never see dirt?

As suggested by Nick at the Stow-on-the-Wold meet up 12th Feb, here are a couple of ideas to throw in to the pot for activities that could be combined in regional meet ups for either a day ride out or quick overnighter.

National Space Agency visit, Leicester.
Ferry ride on or cycle ride around, Rutland Water.
Haynes Motor museum, Yeovil.
Railway museum, Suffolk.
National Waterways museum, Gloucester.
National Motorcycle museum, Birmingham.
Beulieu Motor Museum, Southampton ash.

Being a Southerner I don't know much about the deep North, for me Stow-on-the-Wold was well over the border :)
Cheers for now.

Every year, although it's been cancelled for the past two years for obvious reasons, there's a Sunset to Sunrise ride in aid of Macmillan Cancer charity.

It runs overnight leaving Anglesea at sunset with the hope of arriving at Scunthorpe before sunrise the following day, approximately 260 miles in total.. This year it's on 25/26 June. The entry fee is £10 for solo rider & £15 if you have a pillion.

I'll be going & have my fundraiser page already set up (this is automatically sat up once the entry fee is paid). I will more than likely be travelling up on the Friday.

If you fancy the challenge, the organisation is done via a dedicated Facebook page Bikers4Macmilan, just go to the Events tab & you should find details. Hopefully the link below should work.

Hi all,

I'll be joining you for the ride in Wales at the end of April.

I'm looking for a taller screen for my Scrambler (sorry its missing 1 cylinder but it's all the better for it!), I'm looking for a A660 Givi which appears to be the best value and offer the best protection. Should help be keep the fatigue at bay!

Don't forget about the ride to Poole from Chippenham on the 26th of March, Nick posted a link earlier in the thread.

Well I am off to the Amsterdam ferry on Wednesday next week. First stop at Arnhem, then to Rokanje for a couple of nights to meet some friends and watch the classic racing on the cobbled streets, I hope it stays dry for the sake of the riders! I have a few days to fill in, not sure where to go yet, follow the weather, before meeting a friend in Brussels for a few nights rest. Then a couple of nights somewhere else on the way home. Detailed planning is not my forte, but at least I have a puncture repair kit with me this time. :icon_eek:
It\'s ok , this will only take 5 minutes.

Hi all, I attended one of the factory run bike nights last night & I must say I was impressed. They are running the bike  nights every second Wednesday up until September.
The Factory visitor experience remains open for bike night following the normal working day (It usually closes at 16:30) and it stays open until 20:00. Allowing those who attend the bike night events to take a leisurely stroll around the usually busy exhibits.
Food and drinks are available to suit all tastes (Non alcoholic) as the visitor cafe stays open and there are also a couple of additional food stands pitched out front.
When I visited, the organisers also wheeled out a couple of historically important bikes and started them up much to the crowd's delight! (I believe this to be the norm!)
Literally over a hundred or so bikes of all makes and models (quite a number of old triumphs of course) joined the bike night with lots of the attendees were more than happy to walk around the bike park (right in front of the visitor's centre) and chew the fat about each other's bikes. (I had a lot of interest in my custom colour scheme)
The weather was reasonably fair for the time of year and everyone seemed to enjoy the evenings events.
I'll put a link below and if anyone is interested in heading to Hinckley to attend, let me know and if I'm available, I'd be more than happy to meet up with you!
