East Midlands meet up?

Postby Norton » 14 Jul 2017 21:58

Hi all,
Now I've got my morini back on the road, I was hoping to meet some fellow club members in the East Midlands. I think someone tried this last year, but can't see anything else on here. I live in Derby but am more than happy to travel further out. If anyone's interested let me know and we can try and sort a place and date.
Cheers,
Norton

There's certainly a number of Morini riders in the East Midlands. If you contact the membership secretary he may be able to put you in touch. Hope you get it sorted!

As Mark says you can contact the membership secretary but you may find some members inactive.
There is an annual ride out, usually early September, which starts in Leicester, taking in a pub lunch and place of interest in the afternoon.
This generally attracts a dozen or so members and is a thoroughly pleasant way of enjoying your Morini.
Keep an eye on this forum, Les who does all the hard work will post the details of this years ride out very soon.
Send me a PM if you are over in Lincolnshire, happy to meet up. Any excuse for a ride. :D

Hi guys;

We spoke to both Norton and Jim separately at the Peterborough Show last w/e and it looks like a meeting early next year (i.e. 2018...) to discuss the best meeting place for a regular get together is probably the likely way forward. But really it's up to the 'locals' - Norton is in Derby and Jim is in Leicester; one has a Strada and the other a Corsaro, and there is the opportunity to make this the 'East Midlands Corsaro Section' if enough other modern riders are interested!

If everyone chooses a nice day I'd even fancy a ride up myself - as Paul says, any excuse for a ride...

I'm just South of Leicester too. I'm also more available at weekends now have recently retired-sort of. No modern Morinis here though, did try one courtesy of Stuart at NLM and realised I'd only scare myself more often... :oops:

Hi

I'd throw my hat into the East Mids Corsaro section (I'm based near Hinckley) & would be happy to ride out with any Morini...or just meet up for a winter beer for that matter. I'm a summer rider now though! The winter's for restoring the 500...

Cheers

Hi all.

If we created an East Midlands section there's no reason we couldn't involve modern and old morinis. You could do seperate ride outs to meet at the same place if the difference in speed etc bothered people, though if your sticking to more scenic roads I find my strada can keep up with most modern stuff.

I'm not sure where the best place to meet would be, it really depends on the location of people interested. I suggest maybe we organise a meeting at NLM in the new year and discuss future possibilities from there.

If this sounds like a good idea I will try and get a post put in ATG.

Cheers

Yep, up for that.
I'll try and come up with some ideas for a location. Can't really suggest a time as my working hours are so varied.
See you in the spring!
Cheers
Jim

Me too folks. Why not catch up over a beer in January, with the venue to be agreed? It'd cheer up a dark month & allow us to discuss plans for the spring.

Cheers

I don't reckon I'll make it out before the spring, I'm working from now until early March.
Looking at the map, and keeping in mind where we are, NLM is not a bad shout. There's also 'The Vic' bike friendly pub a couple of miles away.

Do you work weekends Jim?
I don't know the pubs near NLM but it sounds like an idea to meet there then ride to a local to discuss further meets.
Is the Vic recommended?
Does anyone have a specific date in mind so we can try and get it posted in ATG, probably have to meet in February to get it posted in Januarys issue?
Cheers,
Norton

I'm supposed to get 1 weekend off in 4 but that seldom happens. Weekdays are usually better for me.
Week beginning 12th March is the earliest I could make it.
