You weren't meant to take that seriously, Richard  :003: I even know where Bavaria is and that it is one of the world's leading exporters of replacement parts. :whistle:

And as I have said before on here - an interesting first class graveyard! My wife always makes us do a tour, I think she is looking for somewhere nice to put me. :002:

Commitee is the term used to descride someone who can be arsed to suggest somewhere to someone else who agrees its a good idea who parks it until someone else comes along and shimmies it along till it gathers a bit of momentum, some draws a line in the sand about a location, many then confuse the hell out of accomodation, dates, numbers, whilst a couple of good heartend breatren decide to plot up a route and lead a ride whilst many nore turrn up , get drunk, get lost, get bad heads, laugh a lot and go home happy.

There ain't no committe, just people who do sh#t and others can join in if they want, or not  or help or not or research or not.

And for the record i am on the committee, mostly the drunk part, sometimes the ride part, sometimes the route part and sometimes the can't be arsed part but I'm on it, self nominated, sponsered and elected, now where's me gun

My vote is for Moffat.
Not too far, superb riding roads, and top notch accommodation.
Good turnout guaranteed.

Ted.

I'll keep the survey running until the weekend but here are the results to date - with 36 respondents:

- Most popular destination is Bavaria*, followed by Wales and then the Yorkshire Dales.
- 20 people listed Bavaria as their #1 destination.
- If the meet were held in Bavaria, 15 would definitely attend, 12 would probably attend and 7 would possibly attend.

* for Bavaria, read Moffat

A few facts about Moffat :

" In spring there meet round the little wells of Moffat a throng in their gayest and brightest from society in town and country, sipping their sulphur waters and discussing their pleasant gossip ... city clergy, men of letters, country gentlemen and ladies of fashion and the diseased and decrepit of the poorest rank, who had toilsomely travelled from far-off districts to taste the magic waters."

"Their language is among the best samples of English to be found in any Scottish village."
"There is hardly any smuggling or poaching, and low and gross acts of immorality are seldom heard of in Moffat"

That rules Moffat out then, Bavaria it is.

Are "low and gross acts of immorality" common in Bavaria?  Is that where Tony's new masseuse is based?
