    So fresh back from my Arctic Trip, my mind is now turning to next years mega trip. No dates fixed but probably around the same August period and naturally my old pal Waspy will be coming along.
    Anyone is welcome to join me except BB3Lions who is barred.(unless he donates 10,000 Pounds to the Cats Protection League)

    Each Trip is around 6000km long and again it’ll be a charity ride in aid of Cancer Research UK.

    I may be going with someone on this trip, which will be a bit nicer to have some company. I’m sick of having arguments with myself and losing ;)

    I (we) need to decide on which of the 4 or other trips we’ll be going on.

    Here’s more details of each one plus the estimated kilometers.

    I would love to come on any of those trips Nikki. Unfortunately we're (provisionally) planning a trip to Cambodia next year, so that'll be most of the holidays gone...

    Would love to but work demands I am there. But soon I will give it up work that is. Then I would love to join you. Think you are one member I would love to meet and shake your hand.
    Regards

    It’s looking like option C (the sunny one)

    If anyone is interested let me know. It’s a long way off but I’m giving you plenty of time to mull it over. At the moment there are 2 of us

    Ooh so close...see I've watched so many videos of people travelling along the Croatian coastline and I met a few Croatians that said if you ever get the chance do it...

    A bucketlist item, Sandi. I've been wanting to visit Ankor Wat for decades... time and funds permitting next year it'll happen!

    I quite fancy that, how long do you estimate the trip will take?

    Between 3 to 4 weeks. I want to make sure there is adequate time to look around the major cities, like Sofia, Budapest Bucharest. When I did my Arctic Trip there were virtually no rest/touristy days and it was quite tiring. I’m thinking 3 nights max for these places. Some will be 2 night stops and the rest will be 1. But the bottom line I think minimum will be 3 weeks.
    I’m also thinking we may want to move out the trip to September as I think Greece and Bulgaria could be pretty hot in August. But at this early stage, everything is open for discussion.
    If you can make it that’d be great.

    I'm looking to change / buy another bike a bit lighter soon and would be well up for this, I'm retired and have done a couple of trips to the EU the last one this July was to Andorra and back from Inverness circa 3K miles.

    Yes the Trophy is a very heavy bike. I know I had one, now I have a more sensible VStrom 650 (Plus a Speedmaster)
    I’m retired too, so it’s easier for us to make these big trips
