You must have a valid motorcycle licence and current motor insurance. You are in charge of your motorcycle at all times and SWB will not accept any responsibility for actions you take or any accidents you may have.

They pick their own route.

If you're up and out at that time you aren't gonna turn around and go back to bed.


Or just keep the 2nd rider of the first group just in sight.

So really it's speed dating, which sounds sort of apt for motorcycling pair ups.

Ride out pairings, god help us if there are two gixxer riders together the jokes will go on for years.

Really great idea though as riding in a pair is better just incase one of you happens to have an off at least somebody else knows rather then you trying to sort yourself out when crawling out the ditch.

Shouldn't think you'd find two working gixers close enough to ride together Rob. :D

Well that was a nice bimble out today.

Twisty route up into the back of beyond. I was in a group of 1 today, along with 5 other groups of 1 that also happened to be out and about exercising.

When we stopped at the end (I say we but it was a funny coincidence that all the bikes required fuel at a similar time) there were also many other multiple groups of 1 out doing their exercises.

Have you noticed that anyone going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster is a maniac ?
