    Owing to the success of Septembers event the organising committee has asked me to post this already....
    Yes ladies the date for The Spring Ball has been set for 21/04/2018
    We had a good turn out from the Forum(nice to meet you all) and we hope to tempt a few more to come along.

    We will be meeting as usual at.........
    Tesco
    Castle Street
    Taunton
    TA1 4AB
    09.00 for a 09.30ish departure.

    Come join a group of like minded Guy`s n Gals for 150miles of Somerset`s and North Devon`s finest roads. I`ve done ten of these now since 2011 and it`s different everytime.
    Mrs Bravo and I will be staying Friday and Saturday night at Taunton Ruishton Premier Inn,I booked it this morning.(£63.50 for two nights a blinkin bargain).Premier Inn has some great deals if you book early.
    We will be doing things a bit different this time,we had a very heavy night on The Friday and I was a little worse for wear Saturday morning( I must be getting old,I was totally wankered after 8 pints of Guiness:(). So we`re planning a more restrained evening on the Friday,gentle dining,polite conversation and an early night.;) Saturday night will be taxi into town for an all you can eat Chinese buffet then we can get messy from there.:)
    So there you go chaps all the info you need for a jolly spiffing day/weekend out.
    Hope to see you.

    Hello Bravo, I will be dragging Dinger out of his cave along with his shiny new Triumph Thruxton complete with Arrows finest musical pipes [an English bike made in Taiwan with Italian exhausts and Swedish suspension you couldn't make it up] My RS should be resplendent in custom built suspension courtesy of Nirton in Witney as the standard fitment is way below par but I knew this when purchasing the non electrical assist variant. Music provided by Akro headers and SC pipe to help drown out the sound of dingers Trumpet as we cross the moors [a German bike with Slovakian headers Italian exhaust and English suspension it's as much a mongrel as Dingers ride]. Looking foreword to catching up with you again and perhaps a few more RS owners. Light weight on the ale these days but I'm sure the pubs in Taunton are looking after the Irish falling down water in preparation for your return.

    I've just checked premier inn prices and Taunton Ruishton(where the bulk of us are staying) is still only 71 of Her Majesty's Pounds for the two nights.

    Now that next year's "standby" rota for work is sorted (year starts in April at our place) I seem to be free that weekend! :)

    I will have to offer my better half a romantic weekend away in Somerset (looking at the back of my lid most of the time) but either solo or 2-up, I'll be there :D

    Cheers
