Thanks Rich,
My sentiments exactly! It's a shame with all that's going on in the world that we haven't had so many ride outs
this year,so all we can do is wait and see what 2022 throws at us!
But like you any chance to get together we have to take it!
So a very Happy Christmas to you and Caroline,we'll meet soon :clapping: the

Many thanks to you Rich and everyone else who has contributed to the running of our club or just turned up on your scoots in 2021, it is all very much appreciated!

Yet again it's been another very difficult year and we are now finding ourselves in a similar situation that we were in twelve months ago! We can only hope that things really do improve for everyone in 2022.

For my Xmas vid this year I have plundered the archives for a few old photos of all the things we got up to back in the good old days, with a few classic Xmas tunes thrown in to add a bit of festive cheer! Truth is that we just didn't realise at the time how good life was back then, being blissfully unaware of the impending Covid pandemic that was to happen a few years later!

In the vid there are photos of the London rides, summer and winter, Torquay, Clevedon, the events in Corn street, BIAMF and The Bike Show, Car Show events, ride to Wells and a few old pics of Brighton as well as meeting at The Arno and also on the Downs! Sadly some of these events don't take place any more, but let's keep our fingers crossed for some better times ahead!

Here's the link to the vid. I really hope you enjoy it!
you might have to right click and open in a new window.

I hope all BMSC members and friends of the club and everyone's family and friends all have a very Merry Christmas, and I look forward to seeing you all sometime in the new year!

Cheers, take care and all the very best!

As long as we have guys in our Club with the positive mindset that is so evident in comments being made, I have no doubt it will continue. Isn’t it great to watch all those pics of the rides we enjoyed together and it gives you the urge to do it again ASAP.

Well done Jim - you’re in a class of your own putting these vids together. Happy memories, indeed.

Hope everyone has enjoyed Christmas and I wish you all, and your folks, a safe, healthy and scooterful 2022.
