it must be time for another one ? 

Is there anyone around who would fancy coming ? Post up here or pm me if you prefer. I'll buy a brew for everyone who comes.

I am in the Manchester area and would be interested, subject to getting my B175 finished and on the road (at least another month). My dad is local too and would be on our 49 D1. Chris

Sounds great Chris !  I'm flexible on timings - rather have people come than be on a certain date 😀

I'll be on a '59 D1, which side of Manchester are you on?  I'm between Preston and Blackpool.

Lets make a list ...

Stephen  - Nr Preston.

Chris - Nr Manchester 

Chris's Dad - Nr Manchester

We're in Eccles; we are both regularly to be found up at Rivington barn near Bolton on a Sunday morning. Hopefully I will get round to finishing the B175 soon (when I'm not being distracted by my 'new' Honda C70!)

We went to Rivington last time. I don't mind it there - though it can be busy. Happy to go wherever is in the middle though.

Anyone else ? 🙂

We don't mind venturing a bit further north, although always bearing in mind the performance of the D1 up hills and on busy roads of course...

Hi Stephen, I'm in Leigh and have been restoring a D7 for about 3 Years, and it's still not finished. I would have loved to have met up. Hopefully next time.  ranting

Thank you Jess 🙂

Very pleased you can come ! - I'm sure we can fit it round a Sunday that doesn't clash with the auto jumble. Good call on the lower barn too. It'd just be nice to be able to park the bikes together and have somewhere to sit and chat and look them over, and I think we should be able to do that there.

My D7 is quite a bit over 3 years - so no shame on you there !   How far off being ready are you?

If getting it ready isn't an option to pop along anyway and say hello.

Chris, When do you think your B175 will be ready? if its not would you come on something else?  presumably you won't be turning up on the back of your Dad's D1 .......

 

So lets update our little list:

 

Stephen - D1

Chris - ?

Chris's Dad - D1

Jess - ?

Kingsley - Car?? 

 

If we give it a little more time for anyone else to join in - keep our eye on the thread and then we can arrange a mutually agreeable date.

As an initial random pick for folk to perhaps work towards, we could pencil in Sunday July 24 at Rivington Lower Barn ?

I'll have to see - the B175 is not far off ready but life tends to get in the way, otherwise I could come on my EFI Bullet. I'll let my Dad know and pencil it in.

Hi Stephen,  Probably late September, if I'm lucky.  If I'm free I will pop along in the car, if that's O.K.  Please keep us posted on date and venue if there are any changes. cheers

Please do come in the car - we need a few bikes, but it's the people that are important.
