Hi all

Some of you may have seen the suggestions about another rideout in the poll section for the last one. We agreed the best date was 9th Sep. Kurt had also suggested we might try and get something together for the Benelli International magazine #2. I thought it might be cool to all meet up somewhere for a photo op. I sent an email to the Brooklands museum, who have a Concorde, about the possibility of us meeting there and having piccies with Concorde for the magazine. Got a reply today:

Dear Colin

Yes this could be possible – we would ask that you pay our normal entry fees, and we would be grateful if you could provide a donation for the photo opportunity (especially as it involves Concorde).* A mention in the article would be great, but from experience this often does not materialise.* Could you please let me know how many bikes would be involved and proposed timings?* We have a Classic American Automobile club event that day, but I believe they are just static in the Paddock, so they should not be a problem.

Regards
Valerie

So, what do people think? If we can get some ideas of numbers here to see if its worthwhile, we can get the ball rolling.

I'll definately be up for this as long as I am in the country - its the middle wekkend of 2 weeks off, the first leave I will have taken in 7 months (I am in need of a rest!)

Red Dog are also close by - maybe they cold assist in providing something, Lloyd, any thoughts?

Three Cross can also do there bit by staying the **** away!

Hi all

It doesnt look like too many would be up for this so I dont think its going to be worth organising. Perhaps just go back to organising a plain old rideout. I should still be up for this date.

Cheers

Col

I'm around too - weather dependant, we could all go and annoy the hell out of Lloyd. You lot distract him and I'll swap my 'Nelli for his new steed and see how long it takes for him to notice something is amiss!:rolling:

Red Dog

Lloyd,

Looking for a local (in Kent anyway) place to get my Nellie serviced - rather than Taz in peterborough (bit of a trek). See you seem to know the Red Dog guys so any recommendations?

Cheers

Give the guy's at Red Dog a call, they are top guys and will do your Nelli proud. Phone 01732 863636 and say I recommended you to them.

if they need any help to do the transit on da bike, give us a ring Lloyd :)

I think it could be indeed a good plan to use the ReDog stand as a target for the meeting, don't you think guys? Will the barbecue be ON as well (and I am not talking about the victory cruiser, here :ele: ) ?

came there, missed the exit to the station and came back 15mins after, nobody. I tried to go to Lydden, but once there no sign of old bikies et so on.

I rode a couple of miles and went back to London.

Marco, sorry we missed you ! :eek: I was at the services at 11.30 when Lloyd phoned me to tell me he had ended up further down the m2. He said he saw you ride past !!:confused: I could not phone you as I did not get your number,(did you send a pm ?) so I rode to Lloyd and we thought you had missed the services and carried on to Lydden. Lydden is just straight down the a2 on the right about 7 miles before Dover, (there were a load of red and white bollards stopping you from turning right into the circuit) but I was expecting you to be with us to show you the way. :doh:
If we plan another ride we will make better plans and exchange phone no.
