One of my buddies might tag along; he's got to get his own clearance from flight control.

We will even welcome Harley owners ... we will stop every down and again so you can catch up and polish things ....
I know the fact that we don't have a Road Captain may be a little confusing to HOG members

I do believe that Jorn is a hog owner, albeit the "sports" model

Better watch it Col, make too many enemies and you may get squashed

Has anyone got any idea of the number turning up on Sunday?

Re: Motorcycle rides out No4

Anyway, just to stir things up, lets have a bet on how many GS's turn up

I reckon at least 4.

Any other offers?

Jorn and Kelvin are Hog owners - but a long way from the chaps and tassle brigade
And they can ride a bit, as well ....

So who other than Jorn above will be GSing ....?

Re: Motorcycle rides out No4

Glad you're coming along Bob. At least with a Tomtom, only one of us has to play with building a route, then can send the file to everyone else.

There's no perfect route, what's good for you may be boring to me and vice versa.

There are some back roads I'v never ridden like narrow Lüderen, with oncoming tractors in hairpins rather a challenge, while other strechtes of standard two-lane roads can be pretty boring. It's all part of the fun.

I'd like to shorten the home run a bit, not going back to Lenzburg, but

Re: Motorcycle rides out No4

That's always a possibility Robert, still looks like fun.
I'll attatch this option for Tomtom users as well, then we can see how the day goes.

ITN file attatched in zip. Same as usual, unzip into your itn directory on tomtom, then the itinery is available to be loaded.
