Oh yes! I should be with Genie or Ashbrook that morning after JimCs bash the night before.

Gedmunds, Rusty Rope, Elyot, and SeldomDaisy are interested after getting the bug on the London Night Ride. They're on 125s - is the route learner friendly Alice?

Ivana Tinkle and I are looking forward to it - it's a good opportunity to drop off and visit my brother for an hour on the way back.

Whether we'll be on two scoots or two-up is unknown yet.

By my quick count up that's about 15 people in or maybe's.
I'll say what I always do which is top 15 (I think) and its the biggest Skok meet yet
Assuming the new faces and those not yet badged (or should that be stickered) count
Not that anyone will actually get stickered, obviously Razz emoticon
Unless I do some of my 'Skok meet' ones...oh wait, maybe I should...
