    Yep, they normally come down to Hastings for a meal at the seafront's Italian restaurant.
    I am going for a blast this afternoon, 2 pm, to head towards Rye, Tentenden...
    Anyone wants to tag along, the day looks lovely. I will be the only Aprilia in the trio...

    Didn't realise you had moved in to comedy mate.

    Will be good to see you again and catch up, see what you've done with the bike too.

    It may well be the last decent weekend, next one, so why don't we organize a ride out in the south east?
    I would suggest 2ish pm on sunday?

    You are at the opposite edge of the south east DirtyDogg. I guess somewhere in the middle. Let's see how many more are joining, then we'll work out the middle of all that.

    Hey dirtydogg and guys,

    Some hellishly awsome roads out here, yesterday 8 hours saddle time and 300+ miles through mountain passes tunnels etc

    Bikes riding on fumes back to hotel by the end, 150miles ..... fook knows how.... on vapours Engines off coasting on the downhills Good job Badboy had no clear visor and Hooked lost his front headlights, so we were down to 20-30 miles an hour and the mountain pass home full of cows and sheep all over the road incl shite everywhere... slippy as ya like!!! Even had a Badger and Fox run out in front of me Got back in about midnight!!!!

    Plenty of near misses

    Now off out for another blast, catch you boys later

Who was the guy that recently bought Gibson, Tony someone? Think he was the club secretary?
    Hi mate, yep I remember Tony Philip's 'Joosters' and also Steve Dyson - haven't seen Steve for ages though, last time I think was at the Gibsons dyno day about 3 years ago and he was on his LC. The pub we used to meet at was the Portobello. We still have a pub meet just down the road at the Game Cock but it's changed to the first Wed of the month, anyone is welcome to come along.

    Yep, it was the other Tony who bought Gibson Exhausts, and used to run the LC club. He doesn't run the club any more but runs a team in the Yamaha Past Masters series (LC's, TZRs etc). In fact they are at Brands at the end of the month. Gibson exhausts is still going well.

    Small world eh?

    MilleRSVR69 it sounds like your having fun in Spain with the lads, I'm so jealous.

    Flick, I can do a quick training session if you like, drop me a PM.

    DirtyDogg, can't wait mate, we should do a run down to Brighton, Beachy Head or perhaps Pompey to see Gasboy and all the boys.

    Yes mate for sure. Brighton is a good run down from Kent, never been to either of the others but hey I'm still game.

    Joosters, that's it. Was trying to remember what it was. He painted my old Arai for me, union jack style, very nice job. Last time i spoke to him he didn't have a bike at all. Haven't seen Steve for donkeys either. Defo small world. Catch up some time. You must be racing against Martin (taymar) Taylor's bikes then? Bemsee?
