I really want to go on a ride out next Sunday if the weather is as nice as today , I don't know any good places to ride but I'm hoping you do , none of my mates have bikes so I don't go out much , hoping to go to loomies area or new forest , and meet a few of you ( Mr France and dean j ) so what do you think ? Want to plan something on either 3rd sorry sunday is the 4th (as pointed out by dean ) or 11th march ? And know some good routes ?

I might be being a bit of an old cynic here, but, if you're not to good with the general area, here's an idea . . . . and I'm not extracting the urine here or being deliberately condescending . . . but . . .

Go to your local garage, buy a local map, study it, mark up a few roads/routes . . . jump on yer bike and go reccy them.

Some will be sh1te . . . some you'll get lost, but then you'll strike gold and find a real perler. Stop at cafes that have bikes on the hard standing . . . get a coffee and ask the other bikers their routes (take notes).

In essence, get out there . . . go find . . . . you never know . . . if you find a 150 mile 1/2 decent loop . . . it could become the southern ride out . . . . . . . . . . . . No not Beaulieu Rolling Eyes

Im game for this ( sunday will be 4th btw) depending on getting bike sorted and having the free time.

I know a good route that covers 90 or so miles from portsmouth out through havant,chichester, midhurst, petworth, petersfield, Loomies, wickham, ending up at Portsdown hill for a mighty micks burger!

Loads of good roads around here, just learning the good routes thats the hard bit!

i went out for a ride yesterday, found a good road , tried to get to loomies , but took a wrong turn, once i got home i checked where i went , turned out loomies was at the end of the road i started on wall , and i had asked directions! well i went from fareham on the A32 , quite nice road, my mistake came when i turned right onto the b2150 , then onto hambledon road , taking me through worlds end , then a left at the end onto shoot hill left onto b2177 then home after micks van

Thanks for the link Steve, looksd like a nice simple route, I know a nicer one but is much more elaborated (50 miles more) deal I think I will stick to yours otherwise I'll be rather fashionably late Smile

Portsdown Hill it is then! ...and yes it is Paul Smile ...what sorta time? I would recommend quite early

yeah fire it over Paul, always good to have another owners number just in case! Laughing

Hoping to get my carbs sorted tomorrow or that only leaves me an hour of daylight friday to do it due to other commitments, but i should be able to get her right Smile

Going to have a couple lads with me as well as i had already said id ride with them sunday. My mate chris on his 11 plate GSXR600 and my neighbour Harry who rides a ZXR400. Also another chap i know called chris on his CBR600RR, he's the one i normally let choose the routes as he knows his way around here rather well after some 30odd years of riding!

600RR is by far and away the fastest guy i know if he wants to go for it, me and chris are on a par ( although i prob need more time on the new bike to get properly used to her before im on him again!) Harry is brand new to ride outs, has just been commuting on his bike for last year, he's overly cautious, but not dreadfully slow when he see's fit Smile

They are a good bunch of lads and a nice mixed bunch to ride with, so hope you guys dont mind!

Can do fella, although that bit of road you've linked is a bit too tight with very few safe clear overtake spots, which means if you get stuck behind a car your pretty much stuck there most of the way! Id probably chop fareham from the route altogether and come back along the 272 from wickham to the hill, nice quick bit of road with plenty overtake opportunities! Smile
