KTM Rideouts?

Does anyone else think it might be fun to get a group of 790 owners together for a ride out??
I think this could be opened up to other KTM owners from 390-790 we might be a bit slow for the 1290 SD owners and a bit fast for the sub 390 owners but I am open to ideas.

I think the biggest issues is the current low membership on this forum but lets see.

I am thinking a ride out in middle England 2-6hours with easy drop out points for those that want a shorter ride again open to suggestions

your thoughts?

having spent two weeks in a cold dark winter in Finland living in sauna on beer then my next trip was summer when it was roasting and more mosquitoes than I care to see, I can certainly say you come from the land of the hard and brave and that's before you get on you bike :-)

seems like there's a few of you from down under, maybe could try organise a meet, although appreciate it's a bit bigger than the uk

We could organize a bigger meet next season somewhere half-way, at-least for Europe. Would be cool if enough people would be down for it.

FOLLOWING On
so we are spread out over the world but new members and viewers come to this site frequently, for us living in the northern hemisphere winter is closing in, so I understand for many we are months away from the warmth and long daylight hours but......

Can we get enough interest for an annual rideout/meet in each territory/country starting next spring?

There must be enough owners in UK and Europe for it to work but is there enough interest?
