When God created the earth he thought to himself "Motorcycles are not meant to be ridden in straight lines". So on the sixth day he created THE SOUTHWEST RIDEOUT. The date has been set and to be honest one or two of us felt a little bit of wee escape when we were told when it was. We will be meeting as usual at.............. Tesco Taunton Castle Street Taunton Somerset TA1 4AB 09.00 for 10.00 departure . 16/09/2017 We had a cracking day on the April Run,clean,dry roads,not too much traffic despite being a bank holiday weekend..It was almost perfect,almost,what would make it perfect would be a few more forum members. Just think we could all stand around and admire one anothers bikes,smuggly nodding to one another in that knowing,confident way that we have the best bikes there. We did have one member turn up(Ady) with his mate(Dinger),I think they enjoyed it,they said they were coming back in September so they must have. Anyways we had eighteen bikes turn up on the day,five of us carrying pillions. September`s run promises to have more attendee`s,unfortunately they will be from The Lincolnshire I.A.M.(Mrs Bravo saved me Saturday from an I.A.M induced coma) So they can do all their sensible road positioning,hazard perception stuff in a group on their own while the rest of us do the Riding on the guy infronts mudguard,side by side through bends and barrelling into blind corners flat out,you know proper stuff. We usually run two groups with a leader and a sweeper in each,the leader stops at junctions to let everyone catch up and we find this works quite well. So there you have it all the details you need for a jolly spiffing day out if you`re local to the area. Feel free to travel from further away too,we could make it a mini meet. We will be staying Friday and Saturday night,heading home Sunday. If you need any more details you just got to ask. Hope to see you.
