Hi Monster! I live in Mansfield and organise the occasional ride that meets at the Hutt. The last one was a washout but we made up for it last Saturday. Would be great to have someone new to come along too.

What they're referring to is my brightly coloured Hornet:



You'll often see me in your neck of the woods too as I often ride through Papplewick and Linby on the way to work on Sherwood Park.

:welcome anyway, and glad to have you with us! :thumbup

Heeeey!!! Great to see you on here Ian!
There's a ride organised for the 10th May on here somewhere, you should pop your name down!
In case you're wondering who the hell i am... (it's bright, it's yellow, and it's got black stripes, often found belting around Hucknall although if wandering farther than Mansfield's borders i usually end up in Selby.)

Look forward to making your aquaintance soon my friend,
Rob.

Was good to meet you today Ian, bit of a surprise, but pretty good all the same. Nice bike too! :thumbup

While I was following you through Papplewick on the way back to Ravenshead I had a disconcerting moment where my rear tyre decided it didn't want to go around that left hander. Crapped myself a little, but the tyre soon gripped back and on we went. Gutted I didn't have time to pass that car through the twisty bits too though.

Hopefully see you on some local rides soon

Antnee, linby (rob) nice to see both of you today, you nearly lost the back in papplewick, lol, my front did the same on the first right hander (not to myself srub tyres in before pushing to hard).

see you soon :smoke

I was watching you as you went into that corner actually; I hate it because of the manhole cover on the left, it makes it awkward to set the corner up, you either go over the cover and unsettle the bike, or go to the right of it and end up too close to the middle of the road. No oncoming traffic I guess so no harm :lol

Still impressed with the deal on those tyres, though I doubt I'd get any. I think BT016s next time around :thumbup
