Okeedokee. Arrive at the Hotel Royal 14th July. Stay for 5 nights. Depart Friday 19th. I will work out some routes etc. I will hopefully upload these for satnag users. I know it's not exactly the second week but with others contacting me it seems these are the preferred dates. If you contact your bunk buddies and let us know what requirements are for rooms so I can get a list together for Limbo. If you fancy sorting your own accommodation then let us know if you are attending. Anything I've missed feel free to let me know and I'll try to get it sorted. RTT2013 is GO! Cue the Thunderbirds music ;)

I would suggest having a separate topic for listing attendees, dates and location.

Is there a cut off date for booking a room ?
Deposit to pay ?
Any camping facilities nearby ?
Things to do in the area ?
Will it rain a lot ? ;)
Why ?

I'd love to say I'll make it but family matters are my priority next year. If I go, it'll be a lastminute.com jobby.

There are primarily a list of serious buyers.
Anyone can register as planned or confirmed.

A deadline for the reservation there will certainly be later.

Since reserve as many rooms it is one of the mandatory reservation Caution be common.
Which date and what amount you will see later.
The procedure for paying the Caution will pretend Matt101.

If beds are free, you can book last minute ... without warranty. :wacko:

There are dam-where to stay. Where there are dams, there is rain.
The rain is not scheduled in the calendar. How much rain there is leg rests you with your rain dance. :banana:

Where there are camping I had already written. :yu:

Studders

Can you put a sign up sheet for us. I know it's a bit early but it'll give folk chance to decide. We will obviously need to check for a cut off date for the group booking.

Thanks again Limbo :good:

Cheers

eeeerm, might be better if you start a new topic for that Matt, then you can use the first post to display the list and also update it. If I do it then I'd need to do the updating.

Current thinking:-

Travel Fri 12 July - - only 4 hours from Calais.

Staying Fri > Wed 17th - That will be 4 days riding in the area.

Travel back Wed 17th

I will book hotel and Tunnel

Hope to bump into as many folks as possible.

Hi Matt, 900s should get 200 miles from a tank cross country. I'll let the 850 fellas comment on their own machines, but I know MK1s are a fair bit less than 200.

The weather being as it's been, I haven't had a chance to check the 850 properly, but I got to 160 miles commuting before having to top up. Will check and get back to you.
