Its 5 hours away but I’d consider it providing I had my nooo bike sorted by then- I wouldn’t do it on a 125!

That was a fellow journalist’s first impression of the BMW R nineT recently. It’s a pretty accurate summary; the R nineT is somewhat ill-mannered by modern motorcycle standards but also instantly, inarguably, infatuatingly wonderful.

Your rough whereabouts? I'm south Midlands so could meet up on the way?

OK......I'll put me toe in the water......does Friday 5th October float anyone's boat? Would leave Midlands at about 1300 aiming to arrive about 1900. Meet up point services at Tamworth jct.10 M42 for the benefit of R nine T riders who might be coming up from the SW....yes, I know, motorways, but........it's OK once you hit the A64. Anybody wanna add some input or offer more suggestions (apart from the obvious ones!)???

if you arrive at 19:00 on October 5th it will be getting dark. sunset at whitby is at 18:28

I would suggest early September.. when theres more chance of warmer weather. and the days are still reasonably long. sunset on the 7th is 19:39 or 14th 19:21

Point taken - it's just that a couple of people who have expressed an interest have said they're booked up in September......I suppose we could st off earlier, though. But thanks for the input. :thumb:

Has this idea been shelved or does it still have traction?

I would be happy to make the arrangements if need be.
