- Super Dooper Spring Motorbike Ride out West!
It’ll be Easter soon and so I think it’s time to start planning a return trip to Wales!
Get that bubble wrap off you bike, reconnect the battery and remember some of us have been sliding around in the snow and ice all winter.
But this isn’t about who’s (h)ard…
It’s about getting to those fantastic welsh roads in Spring Sunshine!!!
So….who’s interested? Who has the route? When seems like a good date?
Last time the twins ruled in the rain and the only bike to falter wasn’t Italian….
What will happen this time?Posted 7 years ago
I’m game again – although I still havent fixed the GSXR lol! I have been using the temp bodge of plugging a fuse into the bypassed rear light whenever I use it (AA man did this for me on way back from last rideout) 😆
TBH I’ve been on a new trailie which has been far more fun in the winter than my sportsbike
I am a bit chocka over the next couple of months, but propose a date and I’ll check with da boss (doubt I’ll do a night away though)Posted 7 years ago
You still got the ST4s? Saw a lovely one in Bright yellow in MotoRapido yesterday
aka-Gilo…any chance you can map out the route again and be guide? You did such a fine job last time. As the light is longer we can get deeper into the countryside, and I don’t mind (personally) riding back in the dark once back in England…

Last time we met at the services on the English side of the Severn Bridge (the old one) and then rode in to deepest darkest Wales. Single will be fine. My bike won’t go past 150 Miles unles I’m on a motorway.
Had a mix of bikes last time too.
A single is welcome!
Aka_Gilo will be the better person to know where the pumps can be found on the route, but none of us got too low before we found the next oasis.
Chips were excellent too!Posted 7 years ago
Just checked with the missus and looks like I should be ok for this. 🙂
My suggestion is to meet at Aust services again, then Usk – Aber -Brecon – Llandovery (brekkie, brunch, lunch stop at the West End cafe) – Builth Wells – Talgarth – Aber (tea stop) – Aust services. That’s about a 160 mile loop from the services.
Plenty of fuel stops en route, I only get 100 miles to a tank tops, 80-odd if I cane it.
Wos reckon chaps??Posted 7 years ago
