and i have no body local to encourage me out,,and i allways feel a bit sad goin out alone,,cafes especially feel lonely,,,so i don't bother wastin the petrol,,,lone riding is great SOMETIMES,,but you can't beat the laughs with some mates,,,,
That surprises me mate! I thought you knew quite a few folk with bikes down there - STS, Binky, Puss etc.?
You could always start a thread looking for folk local to you on here who fancy a rideout? ...Or try looking in your local dealers ...I know some of the local dealers up here organise rideouts .....that is how I met a lot of folk when I came back to biking 10 years ago. (Part of the reason I know so many folk with Ducatis is that I used to go on runs organised by Ducati Glasgow years ago)... and the Old 'Scotbike' (now defunct) runs were legendary - once, over 70 bikes turned up..... ah, the fun....the fast and the furious ....ah, the crashes! - Them where the days - racing hordes of complete strangers on 'all sorts' (from Supermotos - Busa's)
