New Test Postponed


As some of you may know we have been extremely busy of late with a mad dash for riders trying to beat the introduction of the New Motorcycle Test. (Due to come into force 30th September)

An 11th hour U turn. (Quite appropriate terminology) has been announced and the New Test will not come into effect until March 30th 2009.

Why am I smiling? Well if we can stay as busy as we have been lately up to next March… who knows you may see me riding a new bike. Now let me see…I think I’ve got a Hongdou 125 somewhere….

Also just a reminder about the Ride Out this weekend. Saturday (not Sunday as usual) Leaving MacDonald’s junction 32, M4 Coryton Interchange at 8.30am heading for The Ace Cafe on London’s North Circular for a bite to eat.

Also remember that this Ride Out will be ‘Sponsored’ by Slim fast. Free Slimfast Choccy Bars for the first 10 fatties to turn up!! If I haven’t eaten them myself before you arrive.

We will meeting some chums from Bristol at the Aust Services at the Old Severn Bridge approx 9.30am.

Spread the Word. Join the Ride and help us support the NSPCC. As usual I will make a collection during the day.

Saturday is going to be fine with rain coming on Sunday.

See you at The Ace.

  1. Just Got back from a Grand Day out at The Ace Cafe.

    Good weather, great company and loads of bikes.

    Thanks to all who joined the ride and for your generous donations to the NSPCC.

    I will forward this money on.

    Cheers.
