Say 'Hi' if you're in the UK!

So as not to hijack Glenn's thread any further, I'm starting this to continue the discussion we've been having there about organising a meet in the UK.

Drop by and say 'Hi' if you're interested....

hello Rachel! :)

Hello Nick

I can't believe how many bikers play the violin LOL

I thought 'us bikers' were supposed to be all 'tough and greasy' LOL ;)

a meeting does not sound too difficult, Rachel is also not too far, so far 'we're all down south' apart from Allan :( , but we could figure something out to help that :)

It sounds as though we have a few violin playing bikers here in the UK. I am in Surrey and also have a motorbike (Fazer 1000). Nick PS: If we can't meet up we might be able to do a telephone meeting / conference call? Our North American friends would laugh at what we call 'big distances' here :)

Hey There. I also live in the UK. I live around cambridge. I'm out of the country till August, but let me know if you all plan a meeting in the future. It would be great to meet some fellow players:) Rachel

I hear you as regards Petrol. My VFR800 certainly isn't the cheap alternative to using the car. I was toying with a 125 just to save on petrol ! Anymore Brits out there? D

Don! thought you looked a bit like a 'fellow biker' ;) I have just downgraded from a pan european 1300 to a cbf600s LOL the 'pan' was costing me too much money as I only commute on my bike to work in London 6 days a week, it was drinking 120 in petrol a month! the CBF likes half of that in petrol! But the violin is ok on the bike if you have a very good case for it honestly! you'll get 'mushed' much more easily than the violin I can assure you LOL LOL (I don't wish that on you though) I have such a strong case for my violin a truck could run over it and nothing would happen I think!

aha ! more fellow Brits :) I am in Reading Berkshire. Only 35 mins from Paddinton. I have a motorbike too, but too scared to take the violin on the back in case of disaster. Its ok if I get mushed but not the violin :) D

well, regular I mean.....even every 2 or 3 months would be nice :) we'll see, no obligation ;)

I'm sure it's possible to arrange something - although I don't know how regular it could be. I belive there are other VL members around London too and it would be good to include as many as possible.

HAHAHAHA I like that! 'God's country' ;) Allan! Dockboggs is nearer to you then, where is he anyway, he's not logged in here for a while, I'll send him an email to wake him up :)

I'm up here in God's county, Yorkshire.

south of Kent!! Simon, but then we could meet quite regularly surely??? I'm in South Croydon, I ride a motorbike, I strap my violin on the back seat and I'd be there in just about an hour and a half ;) I do work 6 days a week but we can organise a friday evening or a saturday afternoon. Now we need to find out where Don is from, I know Dockboggs is too far for a regular meeting with Kent and Surrey (Surrey would be me in South Croydon) ;)
