And as Corbets is also one of the new guys, he'll be bringing his wife :-)

Getting my coat now :-)

Tony, if you have space, maybe bring a small camera for the scenery shots and group photos :-)

Tony, PM sent.

Don't worry, we always wait at junctions for any stragglers :-)

Chris
Or for those of us who have managed to hoon it around a corner at a sightly higher speed than our current skill level will allow to pick our bikes up and wash the blood off.......aka me....

Still, as I said on FB, new (to me) bike and a girlfriend who has to work that day. I'll be there!

Sally will probably bring a friend if she comes, and I'm forwarding this thread to a coworker. No promises though. Don't worry, they're nothing like me.

i use MyTracks for Android (from google) for my motorola droid. link here. enable GPS, open mytracks, click record. to stop just click on Stop and "send to google" whereas the map is added to your "my maps" in maps.google.com simple as that . for iphone there is runkeeper that my mentor really likes. but there are of course other alternatives.
i use a generic motorcycle mount such that i see the GPS if needed
