A strang one this.
 
I'm looking more for someone to ride with more than a place to go. I have been using the hub for a while now and a few of you may have seen me posting trip's that I have either done or planed.

So do you fit the bill and are you the same. Me I'm retired and 65 this year. Live on my own. So I can more or less go at a drop of a hat. All in all it's a mate who will look after you and you him on your way round. Someone to chat with at night with a beer. At target to aim for when you get in to France. The idea that you can never get lost when you are travelling. It's just a different way to get to where you are going.

I'm looking at three week to a month at a time out. I don't like the bad weather. Hell I can stay in England and get all the rain I want. Just point the bike's south and see what you get.

Any one interested in finding a regular riding pal, to do Europe with.

Have a look at www.ulysses-uk.co.uk . Its a club for riders over 50 yoa. I know they have a Branch of the club in Norfolk and there must be members in or near Kings Lynn. They have rides to Europe as well as in the UK. I belong to the UK and Oz Ulysses Clubs

I've log'ed on there and more or less copyed and pased this, there. Now it's a case of wait and see.
Thank's

I wouldn't get too hung up about finding a riding buddy. The roads are full of them.

Once on the road and away from UK you will find a far greater moto-comraderie and invariably you will find yourself riding close to or with others.

Conversations start at stops for fuel, snack, smoke or even 'refreshment breaks' to pop behind a hedge. Bikes tend to stop where they see other stopped bikes.

The additional advantage of doing it this way is it is easier to split whereas a prearanged partner imposes restrictions and responsibilities.
