Isle of Wight

Fantastic weekend on the Island made even better with amazing weather for the whole four days of the rally :stomp:

Myself, Des, Barry, and Dave Coombes in attendance, unfortunately Squeaker was forced to drop out at short notice due to mechanical problems with his camper van

Plenty of riding around the island during the day, evenings spent in the now infamous 'Gods Waiting Room' putting the world to rights over a couple of beers with like minded scooterists!

All in all, it couldn't have been better :riding:

Hope it was equally as good for the guys that went to Brighton

Ditto to all of the above comments. Couldn't have asked for more (apart from taking more money home than I started with). Many thanks to all who made it such a great weekend.

Equally good weekend in Brighton ! Weather sweltering , beach front rammed , nightlife second to none ,Myself,Jim,ian,nick,and graham, made a big impression for the club, parked right in front of the Volks bar ! Always had a crowd around our scoots ! Jim even having the pleasure of a drop dead Gorgeous 6 ft plus professional model on his scoot for a photoshoot ! Gonna be hard to choose next year for Brighton or IOW ! See you all next Sunday for coffee and catch up !
