Thank you all once again!

It's that time again! Why not round off the Royal Wedding Celebrations with a nice ride around some of the best roads North Devon and Somerset have to offer!

9am Prompt at Hein Gericke, Taunton or for those like a good old fry up, 8am at Taunton Tesco.

All welcome, £2.50 donation for the site funds (it is voluntary, but the site is free!)

I've put up a poll to see prospective numbers too.

Deal has been made , there will be sun!

The thing about speed is that you can't catch the quick riders to ask them how they got so fast!

Exclamation FOOD FOR THOUGHT ;-)

I've spent some time thinking on whether to post this or not....I think it is something that people need to be made aware of / reminded of again (especially after the crash on last Septembers event and the discussions that followed later).

It appears that there can be attendant 'responsibilities' with riding within groups of other riders now-a-days that you might not imagine!....

Trial: Speeding biker blamed for fellow motorcyclist's death in A404 crash
10:55am Thu 24th Mar 11:: written by John Balson

A speeding biker caused a four-vehicle smash on the A404 in which a fellow rider was flung from his motorbike and run over by a pick-up truck, a court heard this week.

Paul Langguth, 56, from Henley, was crushed to death as he lay helpless on the southbound stretch of motorway near a railway line at Cox Green, Maidenhead.

The father-of-three had just collided with the wreckage of a motorbike belonging to Robert Grimes, of Glade Road, Marlow, who is on trial accused of causing death by careless driving, Reading Crown Court heard on Monday.

The incident took place in darkness on September 16, 2009.

The court heard that Grimes was travelling at almost 90mph when he fell from his bike after a Ford Focus in front performed an overtaking manoeuvre.

This started a chain reaction which led to Mr Langguth being hit by a black Mitsubishi Warrior - despite attempts by the Focus driver to flag down traffic, the court heard.

Prosecutor Ian Hope said it was a 'tragic' incident but that Grimes' 'excessive speed' and 'failure to monitor the traffic ahead' had been the root cause.

Yesterday the court heard from an accident investigator who calculated Grimes was travelling at 86 mph when he applied the brakes.

The trial continues.

5 charged after death of biker couple near Tadcaster
News > Local
9:14am 14th March 2011.

Five West Yorkshire men arrested in connection with a motorcycle collision near Tadcaster on 25 August 2010 which claimed the lives of Bradford couple Dean and Helen Slater, have this weekend been charged with causing their deaths by dangerous driving.

Three men from Bradford, aged 31, 29 and 26, and a 28-year-old man from Bingley, have each been charged with two counts of causing death by dangerous driving.

A 36-year-old man from Keighley was charged with four offences: two counts of causing death by dangerous driving and two counts of causing death by dangerous driving while uninsured.

They have been released on conditional bail and are due to appear at Selby Magistrates' Court on 31 March 2011, 11am, court room 2.

All five men were riding motorcycles at the time of the collision on the A162 between Tadcaster and Sherburn in Elmet on Wednesday 25 August 2010. Mr Slater was riding a motorcycle and Mrs Slater was his pillion passenger.
I'm not going to say anything about the nature of the riding on the SW Rideouts (or on any other events/rideouts for that matter).......just want everyone (self included!) to stop and think on this for a few minutes and keep the 'implications' in mind ;-)

Andy, I fully understand the thought and sentiment that brought you to make the above post.
As bikers, we should all understand the risks of our hobby and accept that our actions have consequences. Just like anything else in life.

I love riding my bike, and I love riding my bike with friends. I will be attending the SW owners ride out, and I will ride quickly, but not outside of my ability, if that means I will be left behind on some stretches of the route, then so be it.
I have found that I ride well with Torchwood and Bish, we ride at about the same pace. I would suggest everyone buddies up with a rider about their pace and stays with them for an enjoyable and safe ride.

After all it is a great day out, top company, great roads to ride, but we all need to be a bit sensible and not succumb to the 'Red mist'.

See you there guys.

Hold that thought. Then develop it.

Every time I start thinking the world is all bad, then I start to think there's people out there having fun on motorcycles, then it makes me take another look.
