So anyone up for it?? I'm in Kent (the posh bit of the UK 8-) )
Any suggestions for a central meet?
You show me yours and I'll show you mine :)

Peace Out.
Colin.

Not explored much of Kent, channel tunnel and the gravel trap at Dingle Dell(ooops) BrandsHatch whilst racing.!!!!

Cheers Itchy

The roads in Kent are crap mate.. Probably the worst in the country!

We get so much heavy traffic too, all the lorries coming in from dover and the tunnel, so the road surfaces are sh!#e too!..

There are a few half decent roads round Ashford, tunbridge wells etc.. But nothing to write home about..

One good thing about Kent tho is its so easy to hop across to France for the weekend, which is where i do most of my riding..

Hi All,

I haven't introduced myself on this forum but will do so soon to all, I'm in my late 30's and I've been only riding for a year, I currently own a 2010 SV650 which I intend on trading in for an SMT very soon all being well.

In the spirit of how I hope to continue I was thinking that it might be a good idea for all UK based members to pin their locations on a map, I've done this already in an SV650 club capacity and it helps when organising things. Please don't be so accurate (for obvious reasons, KTMs are sought after!) but give an idea of where you are roughly are...I am in the Norwich area so pinned myself on the city centre.

The map service I've setup is here: http://www.mapservices.org/myguestmap/map/ktmsmtuk

Admin, if you want I can pass on the login details of the map service for you to do so as you will with? You can also embed this stuff into your own site if you wish...it may be worth pinning a topic to highlight the map url(s)...you could have one per country maybe or expand this one?

Just a thought, by all means ignore me if you think it's a waste of time, just my 2 pence whilst thinking about what adventures I hope are ahead!

Cheers all

My bad, had to change a setting to allow pinning without logging in to the map site, you should just be able to single click where you want it to go and a dialog will pop up :)

Let me know how you get on, this is the first time I've set one of these up even though I've used someone elses creation before now...might be some security/login setting I need to tweak yet?
