West Midland (UK) HUers sign in here

I know it is a bit Cheezy and I admit that I am stealing this concept from an other bike site. But I have just started a Staffordshire Community here. So the point of this thread is: 1) advertising it a bit to renerate some interest and 2) want to find out who and how many HUers are in the this Area.. So Please drop a line here and maybe we can start to get some pub-nights and mini-meet arranged

West Midlands

Hi Xander

I live in Alcester (8 miles west of Stratford-upon-Avon) and my good pal Mark who I travel with a lot is in Coventry - I suppose that puts us in the West Midlands ?

I'm in Walsall, West Mids. I tour Europe on either a Harley-Davidson or Moto Guzzi. I'd be interested in meeting others in the area.

Hey guys. From Shrwesbury aswell. Only been as far as Belgium and Holland so far. Not sure whether to fly to India and buy an Enfield or ride there on a KLR650. Money being a major consideration.

Anyway, would welcome a meet even if its only a night in a pub or a ride out!



....See MysteryB is also from Shrewsbury. - I've msg'd you on facebook. Hope you don't mind!

Great!

I am really pleased by the number of people that have put their hands up.
So AS I started this tread. I say it falls to me to arrange the first meet of some kind. Well I am away this weekend (I am taking a friend on his first motorcycle tour.. trying to seed the addiction..).

I say we start small like a pub run on a Sunday in October... I am free well every sunday (I have to check this with the boss though.. SWMBO is not one to cross )...

Other then that.. the other reason for this thread was to generate interest in the Staffordshire HU Community... so sign up and it will make organising ride outs all that easier

Name a time and a place for such minimeet and i'll be there! 1 month ahead i can book it off work. Any less and i may be able to pull some strings.

See there's a 7th northern meet. Bit out the way for me, but maybe go.

Been in the Midlands should be a central place for many hubbers. Finding a venue shouldn't be a problem either.

I see a plan coming together.....

This could be something really interesting, although I'd just like to add my 2 penneth and say that I absolutely detest meeting up and standing around admiring each others bikes. Much prefer to actually go somewhere

Incidentally, if you know anyone who's after a big adventure type bike, my ktm 990 S is up for grabs. Punt em my way please?

Thanks

I am another 'East Midlander (Jcn 18 M1) but work in West Mids, so hope I qualify by virtue of that!

Am disgracefully new to adv touring and biking in general (one camping trip to wales is my sole experience thus far.!) but really keen to get into it so love to join any mini-meet, to meet and ride (hopefully some off-road) with you 'experienced types..'

Location unimportant to me, and I'll go with the flow on dates!
