Re: What Have You Done To Your Bike Today ?

Love to George, but I'm having my ears and eyes done in the afternoon and a haircut in the morning, so that kinda fills the day.

Re: invite 2nd July 2017

I think that I can safely get to Ellesmere Port, so please, George, put me down for a definite maybe. It's my birthday weekend (4th July) so it'll be a good excuse to avoid a family get together. What are the details, eg: arrival time etc.

Re: Bubble Car Museum 2017

Thank you folks, you are most kind, and thank you George for the email, but I really am not able to do this meet. there are reasons that I will not bore you with for the present, but safe to say that when my head gets to this place, it's best that I take some time out.
Thanks once again

Re: Bubble Car Museum 2017

I have certain problems that mean travelling that distance on my own may ( or may not ) initiate a panic attack and it's a crazy place to be, but sadly I have no control over it. Also my wife recons that a 71 year old geriatric arthritic eejit should not b...

Re: Bubble Car Museum 2017

Hi all
Unfortunately, I will now not be able to attend this event.
An unexpected few days in the IOM for TT week has left me a little short of time for domestic duties.
George, I owe for camping, so will pay you on next meet, hopefully St Mary loch.

Re: Bubble Car Museum 2017

OK, so who is going from up 'ere? Are we making our own way down or going mob handed? There's been a couple of posts saying that a ride together would be good, but now that George is at the soggy end of the country, we are leaderless. So what's 'appening??
