here's the update ............

After the meeting today with the authorities and the unprecedented response from the biking community we have been asked to close registration one week early. It will unfortunately NOT be re-opening.
We would like to reassure everyone that the ride IS GOING AHEAD WITH the FULL suppo...rt of the police and local authorities. We have spoken to a few local businesses who are all looking forward to the day. ALL bikes will be riding through Wootton Bassett no matter what you may have heard.
Plan details re: routes, times, wristbands, will be made available in document format soon. We have another meeting with the police next week to discuss the finer details.
We can confirm that we will NOT be riding on any stretches of the motorway.

We would like to apologise to anybody who has not registered however wanted to join us, we thank everybody for their patience and support.Thank you for your patience!
Lizzie, Daniel & Julia

I'm the any 1 else green smile i've even memorised what he wants from the bar in case i'm there before him! clink
T-shirt ordered - still don't know how they propose to give out all the wrist bands on the day so we'll wait and see if anything else materialises.
Ermmmm Pete - will you be taking tape? ......... will Ezz be alright????? She doesn't like sitting idling for long before the heat goes up which in turn means my thighs get hot!! Is that because she's only small or does everyones do that?? (Bike i mean not thighs obviously!)
I'm a bit worried that she'll overheat so ...... any suggestions? (or do i just switch her off!)

cats often run hot while at idle fan should cut in about 104 degrees all that fairing & that will only drop into the low 90s then off again while you stopped for any lengh of time like waiting for the off on the ride out switch off the kwak gets to 102 before the fan cuts in but drops to about 86 just check the coolant levels ok
lyt at the ready might even be lrt instead

she's going for mot/service beforehand (well, assuming i manage to get her out the blooming garage that is - so least that side of things taken care of and so long as you have the lyt - in fact lrt will suit her better ... i'll rest relatively easy lol - i'd noticed she doesn't like sitting for long she's got me worried in the past as i thought the fan was late cutting in but obviously not then. I'll just have to try and not burn my thighs on her!!! (mind you, if its as cold as it has been that'll be the least of my worries Laughing )

Wouldn't worry, mine does the same. I have thought of writing 'London' over the red zone - I know I'm close when the needle goes over 100.

You'll find all the bikes will be hot on the ride, some will be hotter than your 'Cat. I've seen this whilst marshalling various rides through the capital. Sadly for some owners it has ended in overheated bikes. As long as your cooling system is in order, you'll be OK.
If you are worried, keep an eye on the gauge when the fan kicks in - if it continues to go up pull over and kill the engine .

Elizabeth Stevens, We have had it confirmed that RAF Lyneham cannot cope with the numbers now that have shown their support. They still fully support the ride. We are looking at several bases at present and when things are confirmed I will let you know. really Very Happy

what i hadn't realised was, when you read one of the discussion threads, apparently they knew from the outset they couldn't have more than 2000 for Lyneham so why didn't they just keep the registration open until 2000 had signed up? I really don't know how they are going to manage to take £5 from 10000 people on the day or how they will know if those ones had actually registered in the first place?? I'd have thought as people have registered and they're apparently going to use the list of those that have registered on the day - it would be easier to ask for them to pay the fiver in advance and send them out - how do they know if turned up before Pete that i wasn't him!! (Well, would be no point in me pretending to be him a) i'm nicer looking b) so is my bike Cool and c) he's likely to be in front of me in the queue!!) But when you read the Afghan Heroes site it says about them doing the first come first served 10000 bikes on the day using the list of those that have already registered but i just don't see how they can stop others turning up or have the time to consult their list!!!!!
