Anyone fancy meeting up to do this? Meet on Sunday 8th November 2015 at Birch Services Westbound Jct 19 M62 from 10.30 am for a 12 noon set off. Dress in red to form a giant poppy around Manchester in support of our service men and women. Travelling around the M60 to form the giant poppy again then back to Rigbys Guardians MCC Club House for refreshment at the Gardeners Arms Hollin Lane, Middleton, Junction 19 M62. If anyone fancies doing this one let me or Stuie know and we can work out a meet point to ride over to Birch Services or meet up there. If anyone would like to go for a bimble afterwards im sure we can arrange to do that rather than Gardeners Arms.

Hmmm...just looked at my work rota, I am down to work on that Sunday but I will see if I can get the day off.
If I wear too much red I will be camouflaged on my big red bike!! ;-)

Oh, i do so hope you can make it A2P, especially on that very sparkly, shiny red motorcycle of yours ... It does tend to make Stuie go all misty-eyed!!

Drop me a text if you can make it, n we can sort out meet point etc. :D

Rain is fun. As long as you like feeling your way around rather than relying on grippy tyres Wink

No such thing as bad weather, just bad kit!

I remember when biking in the rain used to be fun! I used to spin up the rear tyre of my gpz550! ...not with any power though, just the tyres in them days were sooo crap!...it was the only time my bike felt powerful!! Lol

Perhaps it's my age but nowadays I prefer sliding my car in the rain!...at least I stay dry! Lol ;-)

Everything is gonna be great on Sunday, the power of positive thought will sort the weather out (fingers crossed!)

Looking forward to this one, please dont forget your red tshirts/jumpers/hoodies/jackets folks.

I'll be riding up to the Cenotaph in Shaw in the morning, with friends in their club, but then we're all heading to Birch for the off at midday.

I'll keep a lookout for ya's all :-)

I doubt we will be Alice; dinner to cook n Stu to get back home at a reasonable hour! Would imagine some of those going to Hemmingbrough with Vlad will be back at Squires at some stage.

I've had to drop out of this one. With you in spirit, but I've got the house up for sale and the viewers are queuing up down the road!

A good turnout, bit damp on way to Bradford/Huddersfield but dry from there on. A small but perfectly formed BM presence; Rileymtr, Guiness Rider, Abel2Photo, GS George, Stuie & yours truly. Didnt see anyone else, sorry if we missed you!

Good to see everyone (Eric could that flag have been any BIGGER?!).

Journey home was a tad hair-raising, the wind was lifting the front end of the bike. We came back the long way for safety which was a pain but arrived safely. Thanks for putting up with the pussy footing around on the M62 A2P!
Wills, shame you couldnt make it, hope the viewings went well.

Back from today's ring of red ride around the M60.... It was good to see the thousands of bikers getting together to pay respect to our fallen hero's.
Good to see fellow bmers in attendance.... Wasn't a problem about the wind on the motorway GBNP ....but elsewhere it was worrying! ??
