Hi to all you new and old types ha ha   Keep an eye on 23rd April - Pick
up a Pillion day - this year will be at Matlock.  This is a great event
to meet up with new people and keep an eye out also for places  to meet
up prior to setting off for MATLOCK - or make your own way.  I'm pretty
sure (mentioning no names) that I know one or two who have paired off
after a Pick up a Pilly day, Should be on events callendar.  For us Midland lot, the usual meet up is Bassetts Pole  and
then go from there, but I'll finalise that nearer the time. If you want
to check out where it is - Post Code Address: London Road Bassets Pole,
Sutton ......  B75 5SA  Usually meet outside or inside McDonalds for a
tea and a bun before setting off.  I don't mind leading if someone will
volunteer to be backmarker to keep the L's and 125's in line. No
motorways so L/125 will be OK, no-one will get left behind. Come along,
join in, what have you got to lose ???  
 As BJ says : Anybody
wanting a pilly seat, add yourself to the 'lift' option on the event and
same applies to anybody offering a seat.

Hey Martin (QM) in previous years it's been noon (ish) I believe. Usually outside the cafe with the HUGE icecream cones on the pavement, near Bikers Gearbox.

It will be great to see you again, hope that you are still on the mend and that you will be fighting fit in April. Thumbs Up Lx

Hey GT!! Wink, thats great. I will pm you with a phone number nearer the time.  

We will be easy to spot on the carpark, although Sandi knows us. K1200S (blue n white) sticks out like a sore thumb, should also be a couple more BMWs, Red VFR (I think) as well as a matt black ZX6R. Not sure what else others will be riding ATM. 

Looking forward to the rideout and the icecream Thumbs Up

Well we are up to 21 already. Just to say that this is a great event for new people and old alike to meet up, renew friendships and make friends and maybe more. I have seen a lot of comments over time about people wanting to make friends, to speak to people etc....well this is the ideal platform to start that process.  Personally I don't do the chat rooms as I'm rubbish at thinking of stuff to say, but I am very spontaneous in face to face conversations. When it was my nnth birthday 2 years ago, although I'm married and looking for friendships only, over 80 people turned up, and from that day alone, I still recognise so many of them on this site. So come on, step out of your comfort zone and get yourself to Matlock on 23rd April.  Ice creams are wonderful and the chips taste like chips. If that doesn't float your boat, cakes and coffee are available too.  Bikers basic diet. Well it's mine anyway, all my routes are basically café to café.  23rd April - be there. !!!  You know you want to !!

If your planning to go from Bassetts Pole  on 23rd april, be leaving 10:45 to 11:00. If your not sure who we are, look for the BRIGHT YELLOW VFR800. Touch it and I guarantee I'll find you ha ha.  Seriously though, we'll be just outside or inside McDonalds, probably from tennish onward.

Bumping this for anyone interested in joining in.
Scroll thro the posts for relevant info re: meeting up to ride into Matlock Bath.

We meet up outside the cafe with the huge icecream cones, on North Parade post code DE4 3NS

Check the event on the calendar 'Pick up a Pillion' to see which members are going, that way you may recognise one of us when you get there, or you could send them a message and arrange to meet up to ride into Matlock Bath.
