That story is up every year  :roll:

They have authority to place them, but not sure if they have the money yet.  I was up there this weekend and no cameras or work started yet, mind you most of the corners up there are sub 50mph anyway unless you plan on getting your knee down................probably shortly followed by elbow and shoulder.

Well, this is bang on......sort of.
It's the last weekend of my annual leave where I'm heading for Norway... http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=542913
I was wondering where to go during the second week after the rally is finished. Well, now I know.
Well done chaps.

There is a nice vid of the Cat and Fiddle on this page http://www.bestbikingroads.com/motorcyc ... &code=8e81

oow we should be just in time for these!!!  :D

The one time I rode the Cat&Fiddle, in 2008, I didn't think much of it to be honest. It was bumpy, with the road surface breaking up. Perfect Tiger road really but not one I would want to push too hard on. There are much better roads throughout Europe.

Welcome to the forum  :D .  If you can make it that'd be a great chance to meet some of the UK members.

If you could post a "Hello" in the General area it'll avoid this thread filling up with other friendly messages, cheers! :wink:

So, to give this thread a bump. Is this a goer yet? And if so exactly where is Akey's field?

Aye, the date and place is set, but I haven't had time to do any details yet, like visit Akey!!


I'm on a course this week but hope to get stuck into it very soon.

and yes, good idea to close one post, I'll get the other shut down.

I've already got my name down for this and I was telling a couple of my riding buddy's about it that ride BMW GS's and they say that it sounds like an enjoyable weekend and that they would be intrested in coming so long as its not stepping on anyones toes. So i thought I'd put it to you all as someone has already said on here, the more the merrier at things like this. Would anyone mind none tiger owners coming along?
