Yes I agree, I don’t think i have the right bike nor the level of experience for that trip.
good luck guys, enjoy the trip. maybe we can go on another (more relaxed) trip together or when i move up to the 1000 + cc range
@Ash007 - You don’e need a 1000cc machine. There is only so much speed you can do on the road because of traffic and the road itself. Improve your skill level and just stay on the throttle. You may have to fill up a lot more often than those guys as I’m assuming they have massive tanks.
You evidently haven’t been on the B500 yet then :w00t:
When you ‘cruise’ through the bends with 100+ and accelerate out of them only to pull a stoppie at 150+ because some certain muppet decided to stop at the parking spot right next to him, then yeah, chances are smaller bikes will not keep up.
That said, scongle has done well on her Daytona 675, but even then did not keep up, since lost sights of the others are fair few times.
As is with Rob’s rides, I volunteered for tail gunning, so I was at the end anyway
Most 600ccs do 140-150 anyway. Don’t want to rag my bike down to the ground but if your desperate to go then a man has to do what a man has to do… Also, he can tail gun and still have his own little burst of fun :).
You must give yourselves plenty of stopping distance between you and the rider in front, how many times do i have to bang on about this, this was one of my faults in the early days which other members banged into me, muppets
I know, but it still won’t be easy. It also of course depends on the rider.
Last time we were there, there were large gaps between the front three people and the last three people, which is what I’m basing my comment on.
Haven’t been on a Mo organised and led ride out, but I’ve heard he rides a lot more progressive than Fat Allan does
