Q: What the Heck is The Bagfest ?

Ans: Its a get together in St Ives, Cornwall, U.K. for owners , present, past and future, of YAMAHA FJR1300 Super Sport Touring motorcycles from Friday September 13th to Sunday September 15th 2002.

Q: Where did the Idea come from ?

Ans: From the people who meet and chat on website. This will be our fourth and so far largest outing, The first was to Yorkshire, the second was to the Lake District and the third was The BBQ on the North Yorks Moors all organized by Steve "Novawing" Laughton. Stuart "The Bagman" Phillips thought the crowd might like to visit Cornwall to Ride our great roads and see our fantastic scenery, they may even try the local ale. So the BagFest was born.

Q: Can I come along even if I do not own a FJR1300 ?

Ans: Of course you can, all bikes are welcome and the rideouts will not be super high speed thrashes as we will want to appreciate the scenery and respect the speed Limits .

Q: How do I sign up for this great event?

Ans: First go to website and register (its free) and then email me and let me know when you are coming and which events you want to the bagman
