OP STORM SW Scotland Mk6, Aug 10th to 13th 2018

Post by AMCQ46 » Sun Nov 26, 2017 2:38 pm

Normally would be the weekend of the bank holiday [3rd to 6th] but that is only 2 weeks after the NI trip, so I am proposing a 1 week slip back to 10th till 13th Aug

Format as pervious years

Ride up on friday, Bunkhouse now planned for up to 20, out of town on the banks of Loch Ken, ride out Saturday and Sunday then ride back south on Monday.
bunkhouse details, as well as the bunk house there are Yurts and loch side cabins, so if you wanted to bring non biking family for a weekend in the countryside, have a look at the website. you can also pitch a tent if you are old school or park a motor home.

join for a single day if you are local, or for all 4, its up to you.

so if you are staying for the long weekend = £54 for 3 nights,
Friday and Saturday only should be £36 as long as we can do a deal on some staying for a shorter time

so far confirmed:
AMcQ46 - Friday Saturday & sunday
AMcQ46 brother & Brother in law [both local so not in bunkhouse]
AMcQ46 Mate Les with SP2
Mistaziggy - Friday Saturday
Grumpyfrog - Friday Saturday & sunday - deposit paid
Gabi +1
Kermitlefrog + one or 2 Andys
Fabiostar, James and Stevie from the NI massive - deposit paid Friday & saturday
Macdee + 3 [I am sure he is just inventing this so I think he has friends :D ]

Ride up on friday, camping in Kirkcudbright, ride out Saturday and Sunday then ride back south on Monday.

join for a single day if you are local, or for all 4, its up to you.

so do these dates work for those who normally come?
South on Monday? How can you try and attract some of the Northern lads if your such a southern softie????

Oh and yes. Dates are all good. Can we camp on another part of the site, or can you get your good lady to pack a Kango hammer in when she brings your kit up please.

good news, will be good to see Stevie and James again... I assume James has a) got a new bike and b) is now a proud father .. so has he got permission from SHMBO?

indeedy he sold the KTM as he found every time he went for a spin it ended up a bit on the naughty side :lol: :lol: ..
great bike and he does miss it but he is having a ball on a 2016 husky 701... iv been out with him and i have to say its impressive for a single how it goes, it revs like no other big single iv ever ridden :D

and he is a proud dad.... all weekend passes have been applied for and granted.

stevie traded the storm in for a really fit prillar and wishes he never bothered.. nothing but ball ache, it now been in the dealers near 4 months and they still cant get it to run properly so he will be on something else by next summer :clap:

i did suggest he should scrap it and id buy the front and rear end out of it :eek2 :eek2
the older i get,the faster i was :lol:

what with all other Storm weekends now moving away from camping to chalets or bunkhouses.... what is the collective thinking about relocating the base for this run away from campsite in the town with all the pubs... and go out into the countryside to a bunkhouse by a loch bunkhouse.

I can find a bunkhouse that will hold 20 people for a cost of £290 per night. so call it £30 for 2 nights if we fill it £39 if we don't fill it

so whats the opinion on this?

oh and its the same place that was used for Guy Martins SPEED TV show when he went for the hovercraft speed record
