    Looks like time may be in my favour next year with no trips that are likely to clash with Flidfest.

    It's a 3 days long weekender up at Rowrah in Cumbria. Lots of arsing about on track, camping and beers.

    99% of the bikes there are Supermotos.. but there's leeway as they've had KTM990's, 950s and even a Hypermotard in the past...

    So I'm planning on doing this next year on the 690. I'm also hoping to persuade a few of the lads on things like Husaberg 570's to let me steal a few laps on theirs.

    Anyone fancy it then ?

    That looks awesome! I shall defo keep that in mind for next year...in a van though. Cumbria on a goldwing sounds a bit much let alone a 690

    My plan is to trailer it up on the Fri morning, getting there late arvo on the Fri, beers and BBQ... then 2 days of open-pit.... then come back about 3-4pm on the Sunday getting home at late o'clock.

    When is the next Lydd one? That is just down the road from me. I was gonna say, I wanted to do this one but without a car getting up to Cumbria on a basic supermoto without a 12v socket for a satnav would be a nightmare!

    There isn't a Lydd one, they just run once a year in Cumbria now.

    Looks like I missed the boat then! As with most things. Dunno why they had to change it from Lydd to Cumbria though, seems strange to have it somewhere so accessible and then move it all the way up north
