On the contrary, if you donít fully understand whatís going on then youíll fit right in. Itís mostly just off topic chat from the UK forum members to try and distract us from Brexit.

This is one of those circumstances when something becomes more desirable the more you it's denied to you.

Now, an fairly vague structure supported by a fairly fluid but invited group of similar minded friends is a very hard thing to define, so I'm not going to.

It's a mystery and that's the way I think it should remain.

If you get the call, you'll get the call.

Sorry.

Have you heard from Max 6200? He's gone and he left behind the whole bunch of roundels too. Rumor has it that he was de-roundelled and never to be seen again.

A great catch up with Capitano today in a Cafe in Hastings where you receive the worst customer service in the world and then 10 minutes later the best.

10 minutes after that you're receiving free gifts from the owner and you're laughing like you've known each other for years.

Good to catch up on how our respective conditions are doing and to rake over what's next.

An open face helmet may not have been the best choice for the crisp conditions but it did allow me to hear the Benelli's obnoxious exhaust bounce off every reflective surface.

Joy.

We need to get a proper ride organised soon, I fancy up around Noelís new neck of the woods since I missed the Chilterns with you and Gass last time.

Well would you believe we have belting rain right now - and it's bloody cold (6įC) and windy. Even snow on the local mountain, Mt Diablo. Though that's all good for our water supply this year I guess.

ride out
Yeah time for one.. It's been a mild winter... so maybe time to ride.
How about a sat morning meet., say 10.30 leave 11.am.. or does a sunday suit better...
Both ok for me, but usually saturdays are easier, and less booked in advance.
A morning meet good as if bad weather predicted, then maybe scrub it or have a city ride around.

Meet in caff, and head east west north or south... any idea for venue and destination. Something with a bit of quirk, an interesting pub or caff, a nifty bit of countryside or river or place of interest or odd maybe.
Any suggestions. , Like a City one... Vinegar Yard, pop up food n drink, to Paddington Basin [ sorry this pic is Camden Lock]... via Regents Park, Islington, Kings Cross Coalyards. We could maybe visit the Canal museum in Kings Cross as a bit of a theme £5-£6..
