I can't do meets during the week unless I'm on holiday unfortunately chaps.

Unfortunately, most of the meets tend to be weekdays and from that you can gather the average age and employment status of most of the participants!

Keith/George -Regarding risk assessment, I am refraining from making this a club meet to go on the events list until I know if there is any interest beyond me and Leon.

No worries. It's a shame, I would have liked to get to them but unfortunately herself and the bank manager insist I keep working for a little while longer.

Not had any response to say that there are folk interested, or able to get to, a midweek meet down here (except me and Leon) I will forget about a regular meet, may be try again next year, and just put a post in "Anyone want to join me" if I'm planning a trip out.
Thanks to Leon for a good ride and top notch lemon drizzle cake yesterday. :thumbright:

That sounds like a plan Ian - it will work out if folk are interested.

Hope you are enjoying the new home!

That's a shame Ian, it could build up to a better attended meet over time.

CW's the BMW dealer in Dorchester have their own social and adventure ride club i don't really know much about it other than it exits. perhaps we should liaise with them and collaborate.

Yes there will be other groups that people can link with and decide what suits them best but the original intention was to get a BM Riders Club group meeting in order to stimulate and grow the activity of this club.
