Chilling Alfa Romeo Bikers meet

Calling all alfisti on 2 wheels

who's up for a bikers meet?
i'm not sure when or where, maybe mid august, while we've still got some sun
so register your interest with suggestions for dates & venues, maybe a route for a
quick blast round together!

I could be up for a meet on my RSV.

Obviously my choice of venue would be somewhere not too far from Somerset and as far as dates go im pretty free anytime in August at the mo

tbh this meet will be in the west mids and while anyone and everyone is welcome it was aimed at the west mids regulars i was hoping people would suggest a pub in the west mids area that would be good to stop at for a drink, chinwag and to admire our metal, not really parts of the country

i'd suggest starting a thread in your respective local lounges and try and sort out a local meet in your area as its far to short notice to sort out any sort of national / large meet, but hey hopefully if we can get our heads together and maybe sort out an alfisti biking weekender or something next year

sorry for the confusion

I'd be up for it. However, Donkey doesn't *do* 'blasting', more 'bimbling'.

I'd be up for a Scottish/ North of England meet (the closer to the ferry ports the better).

We could go via the Six Bells in Bishops Castle, which also means riding one of my favourite roads, the A488

i've put the new battery on mine today, she fired up with ease the amount of cobwebs and spiders all over her was disgraceful so i gave her a clean, some gt85 treatment and oiled the chain, (although its very very slack i need to buy an axle stand) then enjoyed a few laps of the cu-de-sac, really really really want to go out on her but i know i'll get busted it be just my luck
MOT at quarter past 5 so fingers crossed
