"OK" so I'm over Blackpool way, (please forgive Me) all you northern lads, is there anywhere central that we could all meet up, perhaps once a month. just a ride out of an evening, meet up have a chat & a brew, come on lets have some input.
Dominic, Guys court sounds good to me to start with, when is best for you? I usually go to Knott End on a Wednesday eve to meet Big bro & nephew,nephew comes from Lancaster, it is usually packed there so a change would be welcome, and besides it's a nicer ride to Guys! any other Trumpeteers got any ideas, how about you John, perhaps a sunday ride out for a meet up?!
Somewhere in the lake district may be a 50/50 choice for both.
I work in Jock Land (Gods Country ) Monday to Fridays so I’m limited to Fridays and weekends.
Yep no probs sounds good to me even if I’ve got to stop over after a few sherbets all the better.
I'm loath to make arrangements as my Job takes me up and down the country at short notice so I can't take the bike to work for an early kick off on most days. However will keep an eye on this thread and try to turn up if something is going on.
"OK" lets get things rolling, I reckon a ride out to Owd Nells at Guys court on wednesday 11th is in order, I will be there around 7.15 ish, if its not pissing down, a bit damp I can live with! if anyone wants to join me I'm the one sat with the green ST!
I'll definitely give it a shot. If the weather's OK, I'll take the bike to work and come straight from there (I choose to work in Sheffield for some stupid reason!!). I'll be the one sat on a yellow T595.
Look forward to seeing ya! Anyone else planning to make it???
Sorry to hear that John, its stopped here now and there was a lovely red sky tonight, you know how the saying goes, "red sky at night"
"someones house is on fire!"
hope to see you about 7.15. ish Dom, and anyone else that can make it.
Nick I got your email, next time out I will phone or text you, we had a good run out last night, had a drink and a chat & made some new friends, we will keep this thread going so keep watching for the next one, soon I hope ! Dom & Martin nice to meet you guys
OK, hot news just in, well to me anyway, they are having a big crackdown on bikes this weekend with the DVLA, all around Lancashire & Yorkshire. mainly on the borders, this has been confirmed by a reliable source who tells me that whenever there is a big bike meeting on they always go out in force, so watch out if you are playing out this weekend, especialy you John if you are going to Croft.
I'm Going, we had a right good time last week why don't you come along Nick? I'll let you know on the day if its on, if you have a tyre left on that Italian jobby! yes I saw the pic's!! Dom will you let Martin know? anybody else wanna come along?
Sadly I have not heard from Eric, but thanks for asking Dom, the days are numbered for that facist bastard kidnapper !!!
Yeh a different venue is fine by me lets look out for suggestions, I have just found out that I have a meeting on Wednesday eve & Friday, but another night is ok for me! I don't mind going a bit further afield to meet some other Trumpeteers.
Theres always next week!
Any Plans for this Wednesday Boys Dom could do with a chat about Rossendale Weekend
Wednesday looks good for me, about 7.30 ok ?
I am hoping to get to Rossy it's the 19th isn't it, don't know if Mrs Git is coming, but I am we can have a chat about where to meet on Wednesday, I'm sure Martin will have a few Ideas
Hey Trip, Why are you talking to yourself? are you lonely?
I'll mostly be meeting you guys at Guys...(geddit....jeez)...for a drink. Quite a few good places to do the ride-ins to the Rossendale Bike show. I feel sorry for all them Southerners that ain't gonna make it. Biggest single day, open-air show in Europe now...or so they say.
Rivington Barn is popular cos it's a well known meet on a Sunday anyway...but we can discuss on Wednesday night. (Assuming Dom's dyslexia clears up and he can find his way there of course!!)
