Default Ride for early 2017

Right, let's try this again.

Who's up for a rideout/meetup over here in Wales? What days are best for folks? I can generally manage week days or weekends. Is anyone likely to be able to manage a ride at short notice if, for instance, the weather forecast is good.

I'm getting cabin fever and, while I happily ride on my own, it'd be nice to meet up with a few other orgers for a few miles, and coffee/cake!

Was planning on putting bike back on road in March after oil change at end of next month so would be up for something then

Ok, sounds good. I'm hoping to get a ride in for fun rather than just work and errands before then as well. Weather watching!

I'll apologise now if the weather takes a turn for the worse!

Itchy boots so have just ordered the service stuff and will put back on the road probably next weekend now B-)

So if we get nice enough weather anytime after I'm in for weekends

Great stuff. You on for a short notice ride? If the weather forecast on a Friday is good I could be tempted to go out the following day.
Anyone else?

So currently next weekend isnt looking good but long range forecast suggests 25th March may be an ok day. After a quick blast on Saturday to collect a set cowl have real itchy boots to get some miles under the tyres so if anyone fancies it I will be keeping a close watch on that weather forecast.

I've still got the front end off the bike at the moment, should have it all back together again by the end of the week though. We'll see how the weather looks as the week progresses.

I've got that to do before mine goes for MOT. Not looking likely she'll get much use this year either!

That's a shame Mike. We'll have to try for at least one meetup/rideout.

Front end is all back on now. Did around 60 miles on fairly local roads this afternoon before the rain set in. All in the name of testing that it works properly!

Am thinking of heading towards Wrexham from Liverpool then heading across towards Bala to finish at Shell Island bit of an enjoy some scenery and roads and a trip down memory lane if that crosses anyone's path or if anyone fancies joining me anywhere along the way.
