Just wondering if anyone in the area is interested in doing a small something on this weekend? Am going to be around but have nothing to do and despite efforts still haven't been to a meet.

Am in Staffordshire but anywhere around Birmingham is also easy going for me. Infact anything up to an hours drive is not a problem.

Sad that I've missed what looks like a few good meets this weekend so looking at available dates and next weekend looks promising.

Soooo.... anyone interested feel free to post suggestions below! Even if you can't make a meet but know of a really good drive feel free to share that, as I'll have nothing else to do!

Id be up for that!!! Im off that weekend, so would love to attend :eek:

Are we planning on doing a driving route? Meal or just a chatter?

Put my name down and would be good to have 2 CB CTR GT's (bloody acronyms city there) next to each other.

Good to see some interest - was at the South Mimms meet today and we had a chat for a while, waiting for others to arrive. And then went for a fantastic drive!

Cannock, Shrewsbury, Stafford... anywhere inbetween. I don't know of any good roads in the area, needs to only be a small run out (around 10 miles or so?) then can go for a drink and a chat afterwards.

As I said in the first post I'm prepared to travel a bit as I'm completely available - so am open to any suggestion for meeting points or routes! :D

I'm easy as to the location we meet at, but Saturday would be much better for me, as I travel on Sundays. It'll be a struggle to find a decent road without potholes, speed humps or speed cameras in the Midlands though.

Saturday is a better day for me as well as I'm travelling on Sunday afternoon as well.

How about Saturday afternoon? Meet in Newport (not sure where yet) and after a chat do the run to Eccleshall. I'm told it is not bad but will check myself on Friday. Then go for a swift drink afterwards.

Sounds good, Saturday's looking promising now. Can you possibly sort a Postcode for wherever we meet so I put it in the sat nav ;)? Glad there's something else non Type-R possibly going, I was worried my oil burner would leave you all behind :rolleyes:!

Smudge :D

This meet would have been good for me location wise but unfortunately I can't make next weekend :(

Oh well, have fun. The only road I could recommed would be from Lichfield to Ashbourne but there are a fair few cameras. Not that you'll be speeding but if it's a sunny day I find the reflections from the yellow cameras hurt my eyes ;)

That's a nice drive, although most of it's 50mph, there's usually a lot of bikers on that route at weekends though :mad:.

The Civic's going into the stealers tomorrow, for a bit of warranty work, they need it a couple of days, fingers crossed it'll be done by Saturday morning though, and I'll be able to make it.
