Mottza, you've got my number from a while ago. If you come we should be able to find each other.

No problem. Big turnout even the Harley riders are here despite it being cold.

Just got back from the Copdock bike show...and very good it was too!

Met Scootypuff and enjoyed fine cuisine & coffee!! Haven't been ill yet Harvey so I'm guessing we're ok! They were big sausages though. The number of stalls selling just about every tool, bracket, plastic this that and the other, clothing etc etc seemed even greater this year. Impressive even. And an impressive array of bikes and scooters from all eras.

The icing on the cake for me is rubbing shoulders with other bikers and scooterists of every kind and just being able to chat to almost anyone without being punched in the face!!

We reckon there were at least 3000 bikers there, maybe more. I have some photos but need to reduce them in size before posting. Watch this space if you are interested.

Thanks for the company Harvey.

Bye for now. Ian

A great day out thanks in return for your company Ian, I think we managed to out eat our best Gt Bentley efforts.

As discussed we will make this a muppets ride out destination next year as its worthy of attendance and TBH probably better value than the NEC.

Sorry I didn't make it. Had a few things to do and have some family time.

Never mind Chris, family is always first. There will be plenty of other opportunities for meets... ;)

one or two piccies...yes I know, they are not the most interesting you've seen. But, I spent hours trying to get them off my phone because my phone won't talk to my new computer. It's a test really to see how well, or not, it goes. Now I have the technique I can replicate many times over in the future and let you guys see what I'm up to. :o Anyhoo...
