Hi, Nwbiker!

Didnt get chance to ride much this w/end - working! did the Nottm Egg-run this morn before work, though - about 2,000 bikes turned up!

We've not got a bad UK following now - there's about 10-15 of us on here, but not all of them post much....
Don't give up.

Not now, not soon, not after being continually knocked down.

If you never give up, you can never truly fail.

i no of the welsh motorcycle show thats about it really

well maybe more will show eventually and overcome the fear of the keyboard and start posting :lol:

Hi, me again! :D

Thanks for the welc's, much appreciated.

Nibblet99
Hoping to do BMF, if the BF isn't out playing with "old farts VMax studies group" :laughing: and me brother can get a ph (he's a fireman), as I don't want to go play on me own :(

Have put the Beaulieu (sp?) mc weekend on the calendar though, so looking forward to that.

Went on the May Day run from Locksbottom to Hastings yesterday. Fantastic day, weather mega and TONS of bikes and lovely peeps.

Yes, the summer is gonna be a good one :pbjt: , I can feel it in my waters :wacko: Wants to be, we're off to Europe in August touring the bikes. Never done it before so that'll be an adventure!!!

What have you and any others got planned for this year? I need to get out more, the ironing can wait :thumbsup:

Anyways, see y'all l8r,

Be safe, be happy,
San.

Hi everyone !

Count me in if anybody is up for a ride anytime.

I live in Surrey and can be found at box hill on a nice sunday morning or racing down the A29 towards the Lobster Pot Cafe for breakfast with a bunch of other bikes. We all ride R1s, Blades, GSXR 1000s oh and a big fat Hybusa ! lol

See you all at BSB brands hatch at the end of september and the NEC bike show in November.

Cheers !!

Been hovering around this site for a while now and I thought It's about time I registered, logged in and said hello.

Looking forward to summer 'cause I've got a lot of stuff planned including three European bike trips and various rallies in the UK. I usually do the same stuff every year but I want to try a few different events in 2007.

I'll be doing some of my favourites like Cassington Bike Night, the Brighton burn-up and a couple of MAG events but I've never done the Bulldog or the BMF so I'm going to try to fit them in this year.
Hope to meet a few of you out on the road sometime ...... Image
