Ghost Town

Postby jumpingmaster » Fri Mar 13, 2015 4:53 pm

Seems to inherit of the city,
we have a huge history in motors of all types , but lack the active club or meets locally.
same as activity on this good forum. not sure as its quite rare to actually see or chat with bikers.
majority of times its in pubs with people that spend most of year cleaning and polishing , but only ride a couple of days a year.
it would be nice to get some activity going, especially new and young bikers to safe guard the future.
seems a pity that not a lot of chat or feedback on what people think will get local bikers out and meeting .
I spend lots of time on my bike , but very rare come across any locals.
would be good to even generate interest on here and see what others think .

cheers joe

Years ago, when the forum was very active, there were a few distinct groups who did things in their own little cliques. The meets got more regular and forum postings dwindled as most people caught up with each other when out and about. I'd love to see the forum back to it's former glory. Met some very good friends through this site.
Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

We'll be there, mate. Be on the piss for most of the day, so should be nicely soaked by the time we get to you. :mrgreen:
