I do currently hope to be there, forecast so far looks nice for the evening. Probably be on the (t)rusty Kawasaki though due to rain in the morning..

I nipped down for 5 minutes, was on my own so got bored straight away and then left. Managed to stall it pulling out my space as well :roll:

Ended up going for a blast to Hinckley and then the long way back home

I went too, the weather was better than forecast but it was only maybe slightly busier than it was back in July, I was slightly disappointed. Still, it were alright, I mean I got to see an amazingly rare piece of Japanese exotica!

I got there at about 8PM, it looked to be in full swing..

I do like these. Sounded a bit boring pulling away though?
Image
This CCM was interesting though again managed to sound pretty boring??

Got a first aid demonstration thrown into the mix too:

Overall it's ok but it's lacking something, maybe needs a live band or something like that? It's all just a bit quiet.

Yep I felt the same. I’m sure it’d be better if I weren’t on my own, but yeah it’s kind of just like a car park with not a lot happening and there’s only so many times you can walk along the row of bikes!

No mate I live on the other side of town and I mostly ride it in the evening around the countryside.

Let me know if you are coming to the next meet and I will say hello.

Absolutely sick of the weather this summer. My first with the bike and it has been absolutely dreadful :crybaby: then again I wouldn’t have gone bike night anyway as it was incredibly boring last month!
