Default Memories

Happened to be walking from Waterloo to Marylebone a week or so ago, mainly to avoid using the Tube. Went via a remarkably deserted Oxford Street to get a few things while I was there and spotted a coffee shop that looked familiar on the way. I only came by here once on a Friday night to meet up with The Massive but it still brought back happy memories.

Haven't been on here for years now and even longer a meet at Neros, after rebuilding a laptop and importing old info my login details were saved, so though I look in, seems a little quiet, anyone do any rideouts of meets ? or just memories?

A bit quiet it may be Rictus old bean but some of us are still about. Trouble is life keeps getting the way and I rarely seem to have time to get out on the T100 at the moment...

indeed understandable over the last 18 months or so, I still get out for a half a dozen or so decent rides up country each year as well as the local stuff, I believe the Selkent group do most stuff on whatsapp these days, but haven't been in touch in a few years, the last time I was at Soho was to meet Greg & Pauline and no one else turned up (think it was 2017)., like most things it seems we were part of a more active past.

Well that's quite an achievement, I mean it was a popular site and they still make the Sv I believe and it was always a great "first big bike", I'd have thought they'd be a continual influx of new riders, guess it really is the movers & shakers have moved on

Have a look at the Border Patrol section Rictus. We were having regular rideouts before the pandemic, including weekends away.
