October/November rideout for the north of the border folk!

#1 Post by martynmcg » Sun Oct 05, 2014 6:37 pm

Or even south of the border folk, if they are willing to travel!

Appreciate that it's starting to get colder (and will continue to do so) but that doesn't mean to say we can't ride out. Nothing a fleece and a spine can't solve :mrgreen:

I'll be back in the UK around the 3rd week in October until mid-November, so I was possibly thinking about hitting the A82/A83 to Inveraray or even head down to Troon or Saltcoats.... somewhere that does a decent fish supper! Nothing is set in stone, we can go wherever the group decides :cheers:

It's been a LONG while since I've been on a ride with anyone from the forum so anyone who's up for a leisurely jaunt out and about is welcome.

I would actually like that :)
but.. It would be my first ride in this country and I never drove on the other side of the road before, and I'm not riding since 2013 due to some issues. I will also come with my girlfriend, so I'm not the best person if you like to go fast. But, yeah, I'm up to!

I could potentially be up for it depending on actual day. I'll watch this space! :-)

:stupid:

But there's no reason why you can't sort your own meet.....there's enough of you guys north of the border to get a good group together.....
I feel the need....the need for Speed......Triple

If you want a good chippy on the west coast I would recommend Largs. Great chippies, even better ice cream and lovely moors to play on only a 10 min ride away.
Troon is ok too to be fair.
