Sent this into Desmo today…
The biggest regular DOC meet in the UK
What a laugh we had the other day, their was Mr R in one corner spouting off about modifying Bevels to his usual huddle of interested club members, while some of the other lads were debating how to improve the club.
“Cheshire cat” and others including myself were putting the world to right and discussing the clubs rallies and how to improve, and across the way, over a few beers some other club members were discussing Musical tastes, which largely revolved around Rock, but their was the odd shout for ABBA, which raised a few eyebrows!
Kev was showing off his new Hydraulic clutch conversion on his 900 Darmah and their was other technical discussions going on all over the place with subjects that included, Rattling clutches, starter motor problems, where to get your bike serviced and Carb Icing.
Best Rumour of the day was that a Desmosedici owner had filled his bike up with Diesel!
Rogers fascinating accounts of his Racing exploits aboard a Ducati single captivated all of us (hope your finger is feeling better!) while the discussion on Nevada’s had a few of us in stitches.
Accounts of and arrangements for all sorts of club meets and rides, stands at shows and rallies were announced and discussed including all the club rallies, The Wirral run, an Mhe meet, a run to Sammy Millers for Ducati Day, Horsham and Bristol Italian Festivals, club run to France for the Classic Bol d Or and other European raids.
Probably the biggest amount of banter came from the bunch of degenerate loonies from the club that had a pretty crazy week on the IOM during TT week, a bunch of lads that should have known better at their ages, but well, who cares!!!
Some of the classic guys had arranged to have some rare parts made, and were able to keep the cost down by getting a few made and I must admit I took advantage of this on a couple of occasions to obtain those hens teeth parts!
What a great event I hear you ask, where can I make friends like these, well admittedly most of us do meet up at club events, but with us all being spread all over Europe, it’s a bit hard to do on a regular basis, but friends we are.
I guess you have worked out by now that in order to chat like this on a regular basis and help each other out I have been taking about the clubs internet Forum. Well worth signing up for and us regulars would welcome a few more members!!!
Its for club members only so its never going to be over crowded, but the point is it’s a great way to regularly keep in contact with your mates in the club, that you might only see once or twice a year.
I regularly get help with my bike via this rout and the more the merrier, so come on don’t be shy, sign up now!
