Bit flat at the moment, not been too well though which could explain it.

Must admit to getting more into photography lately, another way to spend far too much money

Interesting that perception might be that interest is waning - my perception is the exact opposite! That 'most ever users' was from the day after MM07 when we had a superb time and the stand sparked a load of interest.

But why do I think this? Well, have a look at the 'Rides, Meets, Events' page and it looks like people are meeting up, getting out on their bikes and riding - the Forest of Dean Meet in mid March was a prime example with over 20 turning up and many asking "when are we doing this again?" well before the end.

Winter is (hopefully) pretty much over in the UK, time for last minute fettling and then plenty of saddle time! We've also got HoNC this weekend with a similar number due to ride, best part of 40 riders and a central stand at MM and then OWMTBC09 in September. Waning interest in general? Hardly!

Riding on

Ed
