Hello from Banbury...
« on: April 14, 2009, 12:55:18 »
Hello everyone.
Got my 650 brand new last August rode it loads for the first month then put my back out. (Haven't been out much since the operation).
If anyone knows some good roads in my area that will suit the V-Strom well please let me know.

Hello Matey,

You could do worse than a convoluted route over to what used to be called Fox'z Diner at Berinsfield, now H-Cafe on a Monday night. Great cafe, loadsa bikes and a not too cheap shop next door.
Banbury-Brackley-Buckingham-Bicester-Head towards Aylesbury-Hang a right at the Blackthorne bridge-Horton-cum-studley - Stadhampton-Berinsfield.

Welcome. Plenty of good roads - the A361 in either direction from Banbury for starters; the B-road from Deddington to Swerford then through Great Tew/Enstone/Charlbury to Burford; Banbury Lane from Middleton through Moreton Pinckney, Adstone, Litchborough to Northampton; the road from Stow on the Wold to Stanway. Plenty more - depends how far you plan to explore.

As you might have gathered, I'm a local............

Good advice there - the B4437 from Charlbury is a great little bit of road .
A little farther west , I can recommend :
The road to Bibury [ B 4425 ]
From Stow on the Wold :
B4068 and the B4077
Al ittle nearer you ........
Don't forget the Fosse Way
