You can ride what you want :D I've only been on a couple of retro rides and there has been a mix of retro and modern on both

Hoping to get out with Lumos2000 on Sunday to look at some routes.
Popped into lbs yesterday and the owner may come along too, and has been mentioning the ride to any customers bringing in retro rides :D

Is that an LBS in Poole Makster?

I met a bloke on the sky ride who asked to take a photo of my RC200 and said he had a mate who was organising a retro ride in the dorset area in october. Also said the chap was a member of this site.

He gave me his card but I cant remember his name off the top of my head.

I should visit this section more often :oops:

The chap in question is John, he took the picture of the sweet RC200 posted it up on Facebook for my attention.(Very nice 8) )
I've been trying to sort out a free weekend for an age to get a retro ride together...had a post all typed up then spotted this thread. :roll:

Not a problem as the more the merrier :lol: I've had the nod from around 15 members, so it's looking like it going to be a very social ride :wink:

I can also help if people are wanting to make a weekend of it.
My olds run a great B&B and can do top rates for retro bikers. pm if interested.
check out their site www.thelodgepoole.com

Quiet day in the world of x-ray service today, so I headed over the Purbecks to try a few different routes.
Got lost a few times, but stumbled across some great trails :D

Here are some pics from today, to whet the appetite :wink:
