Ok i will see if i get any more feed back if not i will go with that date . As the numbers look quite small i will probably put it on at my place as theres less work involed . I will try to comfirm the dates next week as i have to make sure im not working also. Looked at Bill & Becs website & was impressed & am looking forward to hopefully meeting both of you . I see this as more of a small gathering of friends some i know & some i have yet to meet . As its at my place if people want to Sleep in the house then thats ok . If folkes who are coming could let me know like i said theres 3 spair bed rooms 2 doubles & 1 twin plus 2 sofas & the caravan just bring sleeping bags or you can put a tent in the garden . If you can let me how many of you are staying it would also be handy. Or theres always B&Bs .
Ok had a message from Gecko who sadly cant make it . Is there any one els who can or cant make it ? . Im happy to go ahead with very small numbers if people still want to come & am also happy to put on another in the new year any thoughts?
Hi Kev,Well I told the wife that I may be away that weekend and shee went mad, she has booked that week off work and wants to goway for the weekend.I didsay a weekend in Kent would be nice, a friend of mine has a caravan we could use, this went down like a lead ballon. So the first weekend in Nov is out for me Sorry. But if you do re schedual the date I will still be up for it.All the best.Colin

If you took your wife for a romantic weekend in my caravan i think a divorce would be on the cards its not much but its better than a tent (just) i could make up a spare room in the house if you like but if your wife is not into the bike/travel thing in a big way i dont think she would have much fun . But be warned my house is alot like a 80s biker house only without the skulls & jossticks .(NOT POSH)
I'm new to going travelling on a bike although not new to seeing the world. currently have a ZX6R and an old Zephyr but that's about to change as a get a Vstrom and go for a monster tour of europe next year.
I live the right side of london to get to Kent...would be nice to meet folk with same interests although I might ask too many questions
Um - no tent - but I'll come on my bike of course. If you go off road then I can sleep of the hangover so no probs there....
Olly your most welcome to come & ask as many questions as you want. It looks like it will be a very small meeting so i might just make it an afternoon & night down the pub unless anyone wants more ? Your welcome to crash at my place just bring a slleeping bag . It dosnt look like we will have hardly any off road bikes turning up also with the current Blue Tongue outbreak not sure which lane might be open so i might put the off roading off to next time unless anyone wants it ? So at the moment it looks like arrive some time Saturday & go home Sunday . Maybe i should call it a micro meet ? If people want to come on Friday then let me know & i will sort somthing .
Ok only a week to go . I need people to confirm if they are coming as i am taking time off work . So if you are coming please reply to this post ASAP or i will cancel the meet & try & arange somthing next year.
I finish my nights Saturday morning so we plan to call in for a couple hours in the afternoon/evening. If you not have enough people then don't hold it just for us - we can meet for a another time.
