I'm looking at organising a meet/rideout in Nottinghamshire some time this spring which is independent of any site, it's just for anyone who wants to come along. It's been posted on another site already and I'm now offering it to any CB users who might want to come along.
Was thinking of a two parter ride as I know some people come a fair distance just to get to the meeting place.
The plan is for a 1pm meet and leaving at 2pm at the earliest to give anyone who got delayed time to get there. Don't aim to be there for 2 as if you're late then we'll go without you, even if it's just me on my own :lol
I'm WAS game for mid-march, until a friend informs me that he can't do March at all, so some time in April maybe? Any takers?
When I looked it was something like 170miles from my house to Dobles, and The Hutt is closer to Dobles than my house is, by a whopping 5 or 6 miles, so it's a fair trek. It's a cool pub though and I love the roads, and it'll be cool to meet some peeps too. If anyone wants to come and wants accommodation I can investigate for you, but I can't put anyone up myself on account of the fact that my house is a tip and there's no room. Sorry!
Had it been Easter Monday we'd have been up for it. Nottingham's only Donnington innit, a long a exceptionally boring blast up the M1 and you're there in an hour, or if you're with Felix 2 hours and via Birmingham!!
I'd have loved to have had it on Easter weekend, but we've got loads of plans already (something to do with the wifes birthday or something) and March seems bad for a lot of people too, so April it is. It's only two weeks later :thumbup
Added another possible second parter through some roads I've recently been introduced to that are a lot of fun. Bumps part two to 77miles. There's no reason why we couldn't add that part on to the 28mile part two if people would rather?
Excellent Moz! Glad you could make it. I was actually just off to bed when I thought "I know, I'll check to see if there's been any action on the thread about this meet that Ratty posted on another site". I popped over to read all sorts of bitching about it not being a Hornet meet, and then it's been locked by some jumped up half-moderator who used to call himself my friend. How about that? :lol I'm sure I'll get over it.
Anyway Mozza, will you be there whatever, or is it weather dependant? I know you're on the Ducati so I figure you wouldn't want to risk the rust? :lol
Will see you all (who are coming) in a couple of weeks... it's nearly here now! Lets hope we have the weather that we had today. I did a 17 mile ride for petrol today (it's only 0.5mile to the petrol station!). Hey, it's no "Long Way Round" but what's the point of emptying the tank again when I only went for fuel? :blah
Oh man, tell me about it, it's great weather isn't it? I'm afraid I don't have the big man's ear. I've committed the gravest of sins by working here with Dan so I'm out on my ear man. And yeah, that post did. Amusingly I've had an email saying that it was locked because of how it was heading off topic. And who started that then? :lol Oh, :hello there people from another site who are too good for me, didn't see you there! :taunt
