Ride Out Reminder for this Saturday

Next Ride Out.

Hi My Biking Buddies.  Just a reminder for this weekend the Ride Out to Stonehenge, as a send off for Francis Maxey who is continuing on to the Sinai Desert to Raise money for the Marie Curie Cancer Trust will take place this Saturday.

He is hoping to have a bit of a send off from Riders BMW/Harley/Ducati dealership, Sloper Road, Cardiff on Saturday the 28th. (Not Hein Gericke for this one)

A 10am departure is planned (so please be there early- or at least earlier than 10)  and we will ride to Avebury and Stonehenge where Francis will leave us (or we will leave him) to continue to Dover and beyond…

Next French Trip

Also the next French trip will take place on the weekend of the the 1st of October.  If you haven’t been…come.  If you have been..come again!  Full details will be published closer to the date but if you wish to reserve a place please contact me as soon as possible.

Spaces on these trips are limited, so don’t be disappointed.  Get your name on the list.

Next Bike

Also on Saturday you might notice a small change.  I won’t be running a ‘Spot the Difference’ Competition but you might notice that I won’t be riding my ‘old’  Green BMW but will be riding something that begins with ‘K’ and ends in GTR 1400.

At the moment I’ve still got the ‘old girl’ hidden away so if anyone wants to give it a good home (and give me some of your cash in exchange) then let me know if you are interested.  She has served me well enough.






“Will my bum look big on this”……

  1. Nice to see you’ve seen the light and joined the dark side

  2. The Devil made me do it !

  3. Your bum might look big on the GTR but you’ll never be as big a bum as the last owner! (Sorry coach, I couldn’t resist).

  4. Still, could have been worse, you could have bought a Triumnph!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Sorry I didn’t make it last week (something came up last minute). Hope everything went well and Francis had a good start to his journey. Hopefully I’ll be joining you all for Bourton.
