Hi, knock three soft followed by one hard and we'll let you in. No need to carry the map for recognition. Linzi.

Because I am so awesome, I went to this meet last Thursday.

There weren't too many overlanders there so I got drunk and frollicked with freshers instead, then slept on the beach.

The Hanover is a great pub, with excellent staff, who were more than happy to look after my kit for the night.

I will post a full review of the 1st Brighton Mini Meet ASAP.

By the way, the Hanover has a pool table, so I imagine a couple of games of doubles could well be in order. I have a theory that after one & three quarter pints of Guinness I have this window of opportunity that lasts until the end of the glass, where I can pot anything, then its back to potting the white. They also have a seriously old school arcade game in there called "Defender".

They do food in the pub until 9:30pm, plus there is a chip shop almost opposite.

Welcome to The Hanover Pub

Looking forward to it.

Iain.

Well it looks like 'tootall' will have a monoploy on daft questions! I am also new on here and was planning to come to this meet, but hurt my shoulder at work yesterday and so not able to ride at the mo. No where near but hurts none the less. And it's my drinking arm at that!
Enjoy it everyone and hopefully there will be another one soon

Looks like I'm out too; my daughter's in town and haven't seen her for ages. Hope your shoulder gets better soon Matt.

Have a good one everyone! Catch you next time.

Thanks everyone for making the effort to come along last night, good to hear some tales of the road, my favourite the tale of a biker on the road trying to pick up the BBC World Service a good few years back and as the signal is breaking up he can vaguely make out the repeated word "nuclear", mixed with "disaster", far from home the chilling reality seems to be clear, there's been a nuclear holocaust in Europe somewhere, the bombs finally been dropped, quite a revelation to contemplate. It turns out he'd been listen to reports of the Chernobyl melt down, obviously a horrific disaster in it own right, but I could help thinking how chilling it must have felt to think a nuclear war was playing out back home.

In the new year or spring we'll have to organise another get together and perhaps a ride out on some dirt track for any one who fancies some mud.

Iain.
