    great video!... i wanna go!.... but that tune you got playin' has got, without a doubt, the worst sax player on it in recorded history.... i thought it was a bad synth patch, but it was real squeakin' on the end.... still dug it though!.....

    I've found another piste of about 500kms that I'd like to ride...

    To get to this.

    Sounds great.

    Just need to get an 1150 GSA sorted in late September or early October and go. K1200S not the ideal bike I suspect.

    Hi Newboyuk....

    The ferry departs this year from Plymouth on 20th October bound for Santander(arriving in Spain on 21st at noon)....one of the English dudes(Roger) says that anyone taking the same ferry can stay over at his house the previous night if need be.....

    :D

    Hi Craig..

    Christophe arrived over about 2 nights ago with it on a USB key! He says when he has the time he'll edit up a few more!

    I'm still waiting for Franks pictures at the same time!!..It's not like he lives a 1000kms away..only 10!

    I have Final Cut Pro on my air book so I really must take the time to school myself on it's workings!

    We head off again with about 15 riders or so from 21st October to 6th November. We'll hunt out more pistes well east of Agadir.

    I just gave the XTZ an oil change yesterday along with 2 more tyres(I got 11,500kms out of the last ones)I changed the front sprocket and I'm now good to go!

    Phil is taking a TTR600 this time around and one of his friends will be on an Enfield!

    All in all it's bound to be another comedy show.

    In the meantime I see you're sporting a 70's porn star moustache these days!!..You'd be a direct replacement for the 'Naked Dude on a KTM" :rofl

    Keep safe as always.

    :D

    When are you off for the next one? I had hoped to tag a long, but I'm in France until May (at least) now.

    Hi Mein Motorrad

    You'd be most welcome to join our group of like minded idiots. :D

    You're in no better place to start as I'm in France also! (64800 postcode). See the previous post from Guilty Party as to when we head off. Anyone traveling down through France has an offer to stay with another rider just east of Bordeaux and also to stay with myself a couple of days before leaving if they wish to do so. (I have a rider from Southern Ireland riding down to stay from the Saturday before departure)

    We'll ride over the Pyrenees,which is a great route in itself,into Spain and off we go!

    We'll throw in some wild camping in Maroc as and when it lends itself..Other that that we'll be winging it!

    Have a look here for some more info...
