Very tempting......

We've mentioned Wales once today, this looks good to me.

PS......

Something about this feels "right", I've just paid for the full event.

No chance if you're going.
You are the magnet for noisy nutters. There'll be no chance of sleep!

I think they are heading for Italy to Mugello about that time, then on to Barcelona.

Not what I had in mind  :-\

You must be mad  ::)

I was thinking... more along the lines of nice scenic roads and relaxing butty & Brew stops in pretty villages  :-*

Not a place full of manic biker types tearing up the countryside  :P

I know you don't like crowds but they looked harmless old farts to me and the bit of music was actually musical.

I think there's a chance of being shown roads we might miss on a quick run.

It says you can take your campervan  ;D I like your style going for the duration, good on yer, shabby chic and craft beer  ;) what more would you want and it includes a ride out  :)

We can still arrange a ride out around some great roads and scenery  :)

This might supply some inspiration for a ride out.

Not that much duration and if it turns really Welsh I'll not go, but that is negative thinking.

Hi
I could be tempted but am going to mid Wales, Newtown- ish the same time with the BM Riders club for a week, 65 quid for a bed in the bunkhouse for 7 nights, sounds cheaper than camping

If the place turns out to be as good as people I know say it is I will share the details

Brian, (Hilldweller) and I are headed to Monmouth area of south Wales tomorrow for a weekend in Wales.

I've even arranged for local motorcyclist. Robbie Williams, to act as our tour guide.

His post on another forum directed at attendees is worthy of inclusion here, if only to wind up FPM, who is unable to join us.

Morning folks.
Plan is meet at the post office at around 12.
Drop any luggage off at the village hall.
Up to mine for lunch (any veggies in the group?).
Head off around 1 forescast is dry and 13c.
First stop will be after about 30 mins for the best ice cream in the uk.
Then we'll just wing it.
I know you guys have had a long ride on the way down.
Could you give me some thoughts on what mileage you will be happy with.
Then I can plan the route accordingly.
Look forward to seeing you all regards Robbie

If that got posted in the wrong place we are DEAD.

But just got to wash it, wash off all the lovingly collected flies and I'm ready. Be gentle with me TC,

Your task en-route, is to spot a milestone at the roadside and post a photo of your bike near it in response to FPM's tasking.

Brian, (Hilldweller) and I are headed to Monmouth area of south Wales tomorrow for a weekend in Wales...

Trying to wind me up, eh,... alright, watch me crying  :'(

Sadistic lot - hope you feel guilty making an overgrown man weep.

As I'm something of an ice cream connossewer I think you'll have to bring me a 1 litre tub of vanilla back for my approval... AND DON'T LET IT MELT!

Only got the KLV1000 fired up for the first time last night - those carbon fibre cans are noisy, but maybe I've just got used to the purr of the Silver Wing! The baffles hardly make any difference. I'm just letting it cool down after firing it up again this morning. No leaks so far, but the cooling system has burped a little and the oil was needing a top up after the initial run. It's looking good for replacing the body panels, then sort out an MOT.

Have a good time - lucky devils.

I'll enquire if they do mail order. Unfortunately I'm a tight wad and only willing to fork out for second class stamps!
