Morning Ian.
I’m planning to be there - over next couple of days I shall go to my garage and get it filled up, buffed up and ready for action.
Looking forward to it.

Not wishing to be negative, but perhaps we are being a little ambitious planning rideouts this early in the year? :freezing:

Traditionally our first ride of the year has usually been Easter Monday to WSM, and even then we have sometimes conceded to bad weather :cry:

Yep, point taken Ian, ignore me, I’m turning into a grumpy old git, it’s been a long winter! :help

There might be something in this global warming, whatever happened to spring and autumn? We only seem to get two seasons now, winter and June!

It's pretty much a given that the first and last couple of meet ups of the year are going to be very weather dependant, but we always include them in the diary on the off chance that they may be do-able! Many thanks goes to Ian for doing his bit in posting up the reminders!

We're all eager to get out on the scoots and we don't mind it being a little on the cool side, but obviously snow is definitely a no goer!

Hopefully the weather is going to be improving as next month in April we've got some good rides planned.

SUNDAY 1ST APRIL
Our traditional Easter ride to WSM for fish'n'chips on the sea front and there's usually a classic car show there as well.

SUNDAY 8TH APRIL - SECOND SUNDAY MEET UP
We've been invited to show our scooters at a VW event in Highbridge.

SATURDAY 28TH APRIL
We'll be having a ride around Bristol as part of the Modernist Weekend event.

We've also been invited to attend the Tuesday night Hot Rod meets at The King William pub in Warmley on Tuesday nights and they start next month as well!

So plenty of opportunites to get out on the scoots! Let's hope all the snow has gone by then!

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Take care and ride safe!
Jim
