Talking Adventure Bike Festival 2019 Ragley Hall, UK

So Ive spent the day putting together my camping kit and getting ready For this years Adventure Bike festival.

Ive never been before, but hoping it should be good (hoping English weather is nice for a change)

Wondered if anyone else from this forum is going at all?
If you are and you spot my bike or me, do come say hi..always nice to meet a fellow forum dweller!

Hoping to have a few trail rides and a maybe a test ride or two over the course of the weekend.

lol not packed already....more of a test run to ensure I had everything and it was secure.
Not been camping on this bike yet, have to admit panniers make the whole thing painless compared to my old Fireblade lol

Haha yah I just have the topbox, which I'll bring and then just leave it in the tent when there. Now that I've seen how much space the tent, air bed, sleeping bag, some clothes and the tool kit takes, I've been thinking panniers would be nice, or even just the racks to strap stuff to. Definitely couldn't go two up with the amount of stuff I'll have strapped on the rear seat. Didn't even get the folding chair out will have to sit on the grass haha

Loads of people if you look on the CRF1000 UK facebook group. I don't think many will come from overseas for this though.
Just hope it won't be a nightmare booking test rides and having to queue for everything

I'm heading up Friday morning with a couple of mates.


Managed to fit everything into my Givi tail bag.




I must have forgotten something
