Maybe I want to stay in UK and even ride to north. Any suggestions on places to visit or nature? Above Leeds alot of National Parks and mountains and not to far from Southampton

UK rules are different when applied to one off, it’s the mass maker that has to get the certification. While there are rules regarding noise (decibels) and emissions, the old RD’s use the “Grandfather” clause that the rules when the bike was made, apply. How can you apply emissions to a 2 stroke!!
Additionally, any vehicle bike/car over 40 years old are classed as classics and do not require yearly ministry testing (MOT). So, the noise etc is not normally picked up. However, the Police could stop you but you would have to really be silly for that to happen.
Thankfully UK is not as strict as EU. Germany seems to be worst, as even if you want a different tyre (tire) you have to get paperwork and verification to allow deviation from standard!

The meeting place is Rownhams services on the M27 Westbound and that has a cheap hotel on site. If you are coming the day before let us know and we may be able to arrange a night out. If you are camping in the new Forest again let us know and we may be able to incorporate the ride to collect you.

Hello Paul. I would let you know that I travel that I participate in the meeting. On Thursday I will ride to area around Southampton. Where I stay I will look when I am there.

If the run goes past my house, like it has in previous years, then, looking at those pipes, I might have to wear some ear plugs!  :o :D
