So here I am in the UK, down south (near Brighton sort of). Visiting the wife's family for Christmas.

Was walking around a village yesterday with my MV hat on and a guy in a van yelled out the window "EMMM VEEEEE!!!!" at me. That would never happen in Tucson!

Going to try to meet up with Senna 026 at some point here and have a few beers.

Weather is pretty nice. Especially today. It's slightly colder than it has been, but sheesh, I'm looking out the window and I can't see a cloud! Is this really the UK? Wow, nice! Lotsa bikes running around. I'm going to try to get to a few bike shops to see the new 1098 if there are actually any there, and also some MVs.

Hey John, yeah, I would be working too if not for this trip. I haven't taken any time off at Christmas since I was in school, so this is kinda new for me. Hope you at least get to have a little fun though.

Hope it's nice up there too! Never been to Yorkshire, but I want to go at some point. Don't think it's going to happen on this trip.

Will do Greg. I'm hoping to meet people over here, doesn't matter who they are. I'm kinda limited in that I have a wife which is more keen on shopping than sitting at a pub and meeting with people, but we'll see how it goes. She let me meet macmivvi last time and that was really nice.

If anyone else is in this area (south, Sussex), might be nice to try to meet up!

the question is:

how much "DAMAGE" will she do IF you let her go shopping alone? :)

Take care there Andy, Ralph uses the beers to wash down the Gin. :smoking:

Enjoy your trip, I also feel the exchange rate pain , shopping? :nutkick:

Sun's out up here and I just installed a new carbon swingarm on my bike, ah the good life!

Heh, I'll be using the beers to wash down the single malts! Saw a nice Caol Ila 18 in Waitrose yesterday but didn't get it yet. I've been waiting to get some of that stuff for years now. Only have the 12 at the moment.

Carbon swingarm? Pics? For the MV? Never seen one!

You would be very welcome Andy, as would all forum members who don't live here already of course. :)

Nah, Kelly's parents' house. I bought a wifi adapter for their computer and I've got an ad-hoc network set up. I brought my laptop just so I could torment the guys at work a little.

I'll get some pics here soon. We're planning on doing some little trips here and there.

Andy - let's try and sort something out for Saturday afternoon or evening; I guess you'll still be in Brighton?

I assume Kelly has full rights on your charge cards (I'm not married myself, but I believe that's how these things work!), so she can do the last-minute shopping while we chew the MV fat for a couple of hours.

026 is already in it's winter lair but I've not started stripping it down yet so, if the weather's bearable (i.e. dry and 10C/50F-plus), then I can bring it down for a drool; otherwise I'll use the cage.

You've got my numbers, or msg here.

(PS: Nice one, macmivvi! Bringing it to Cadwell next year?)

Sounds good so far. I was going to give you a call tonight but I'll negotiate for Saturday and see how it goes. I may even be able to get a guy I race with from Tucson to meet up too, my friend Dean. He's originally from Swindon. He's a riot. ZX-10R rider/racer. He'll be visiting his family near Swindon. We'll see.

No worries about the bike! Today was no weather for riding, that's for sure!

As for credit cards... The wife is pretty good about that, she doesn't go out and go nuts which is nice. But you never know, I'm probably due for punishment for something I don't even know I did... Heh.

This is Dean and I:

OK, I'll keep Saturday free - just call me (at work is best) and give me a time and place when you know more.

Forecast is cold & fog for the rest of the week, so it's probably gonna be the Nissan!

Must dash - squash game in 30 minutes.................

Cringe! Just as well most won't get it - we have a reputation for humour to uphold!


PS: This meet-up looks like it's really going to happen, but can you believe that macmivvi's got rideable weather while we'll probably be peering out through a beer/smoke haze at the fog-engulfed frosty south coast of England!
