The computer lied and the weather on the way up was mild and dry.Typically, i put on the new one piece over suit(bought at the A.GM. via Sue Knock)-with thermals for good measure.When i arrived at The Lion i was was steaming hot!When i popped my head around the door i found a few other early birds in the shape of Jon who had come on his black V7,Ian also on a V7,Heinz on the orange newly decorated Quota. JohnD and Neal Owen also arrived too,closely followed by Ken who looked shocked that we had all pipped him to the bar!
The conversations were varied,but the Lion is open for business and there was talk of rumours from the valleys.The fire was alight and very warm-so i had a lot of peeling to do...
Anyway, we caught up with various matters bike and domestic.At this point Andy and Bernie turned up.Both new members and pleased to see more of us here today.Yes, they had turned up at the Lion last month along with Pete the Brock and John Hooper. We had all gone elsewhere via the forum and word of mouth following Fake news gate!
Bernie is a Triumph enthusiast and Andy is hoping to have a T3 ready to ride soon.Both are experienced bikers and will be coming again i gather.Very nice people and excited about all that's to come by the sound of things.
Some chat about Red Kite IV and maybe a separate meeting to see what we are going to do after this years events at Red Kite III!
As Maggie Maither said in the last Gambalunga -'It was a sell out and both enjoyable,and (tellingly)a little overwhelmed by it's own success at times'!Thanks for the feedback.-Dot on.
So, we will be involving Guzzi friends to share the action at Red Kite IV...The fun will,we hope, continue ...
See you all at the Lion on the 3rd Sunday of January.RING JON OR CHECK FORUM IF YOU WANT TO BOX SAFE!
My ride home,typically was wet and i had'nt put the waterproofs on....
