I was born and bred in Blackpool, and lived in the area for the best part of 30 years.

Packed it all in on a whim, and now spend my days doing the same old s!$% in the land of silicon (and I'm not referring the computer chips) and sun....

I'd be up for that! I live near burnley, but spent quite a few years working at the pleasure Beach over there. Some great roads over that way, as there are inbetween.

Where do you suggest?? It'd be great to meet up with a few northern trumpeteers.

Guy's Court on the A6????

Are some of you northern chaps going to make trip to Scropton, so we have a bit more of a national feel, rather than the Sussex Squadren plus a couple of hangers on. Please.

Sorry Mr. B.

I have friends coming down from God's country 85 on Saturday night then going to Croft on the Sunday.
Another time I hope.

I’m sure it won’t stop you from having a ball without us.

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! 02 any other Trumpeteers got any ideas, how about you John, perhaps a sunday ride out for a meet up?! 49

Somewhere in the lake district may be a 50/50 choice for both.
I work in Jock Land (Gods Country 85) 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 21 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.

Baldy (do you mind being called that??),

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???

It's looking like the weather may well be OK for Wednesday!! I'll post a message tomorrow to confirm whether I'm on the bike or not through the day.

I hope this is OK with you baldy, can you check through the day??? Wouldn't want you to be sat there on your Norah Jones!!!

All being well, I'll see everyone at Guy's tomorrow evening.

You likely to make it tomorrow, Martin??? I'll see you in the morning about it, Ar$e!!!

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 02

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. 49

Following the success of last weeks meeting (3 Trumpets!!) at Guy's Court, I'd like to suggest the same for this Wednesday.

Anybody else fancy coming along for the ride???

Nice to meet you too, Baldy!! Have you heard any more from Eric??

Look forward to see lots more bikes at future meetings

Hey Baldy! This seems to be quickly becoming a well viewed thread. Does this mean there may be a few more trumpets heading for a northern meet??

I've a strange week coming but I'll let you know if I can come out for a blast.

I was going to float the idea of a different venue if other T595'rs would be able to make it. Any suggestions???

Theres always next week! 01

Any Plans for this Wednesday Boys 02 Dom could do with a chat about Rossendale Weekend 01

Wednesday is Lokking Good!!

I think this Wednesday sounds like a fine idea!! As well as being off work, the BBC weather site shows big, yellow suns all week!! (Which makes me happy - like my big, yellow Daytona!!!)

I think Martin's up for a ride out too, so is there anyone else we can tempt out for a Sunny Wednesday evening at Guy's Court???

Are you planning to go to the Rossy Bike Show Baldy?? Is there likely to be a big Trumpet presence there??

OK so I can't spell!! It seems I can't edit the title, so my crap spelling is there for the whole world to see!! Bo!!ocks!

p.s. Sorry about the Big, Yellow bit up there! I just couldn't help myself!

This Wednesday

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!!) 03

Hi Guys

thanks for the invite, but unfortunately I am without wheels at the moment. This is due to little girls who run out of side streets straight infront of you....

Will keep my eye on this Thread, also the TT is no longer living so the wheels at the moment(when I get them back) are a Triumph(of course) Bonneville America.......
