I too am in Derby if you need a like minded soul.

No real owner presence in the East midlands and we seem to be in a black hole between West Mids. Northampton, NE Lincolnshire groups.

Can I suggest that you read a couple of posts on the forum to make using the forum easier. This is good advice for all new members.

The first is the Rulebook (viewtopic.php?f=1&t=5). This will explain that until you have 10 approved posts your posts are moderated. They will not appear immediately. Whilst I normally try to moderate within 24 hours it is not always possible when I am away. Posting near identical posts > 30 times will not make them appear in fact it delays them as it takes longer for me to deal with them.

The second is the “How to” on posting pictures (viewtopic.php?f=106&t=3348). We want to enjoy the pictures you post but if you do not do them as per the above then they will not be visible. If you choose to insert them rather than upload them please make sure they are hosted in a location that does not require the viewer to subscribe/log in.

Thanks Steve sooo sorry wanted it all to work straight away?!
Not been on the duke since 1996?? So too excited!!

Cheers Pat

no problem

Was great to meet you Saturday, the bike looked amazing

Good to see you last Saturday Pat, hope you got to your hotel OK?
