Hawes?

Postby boxerscott » Wed Aug 09, 2017 10:32 pm

A and I have booked a weekend at Cocketts 22/23 Sep. Would be great to see some familiar faces in Village too (other than all the barpersons I know )

Sounds like a plan. I take it you will be on two wheels for the weekend?

Paul
You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Would love to have headed back to Hawes again but Clare and I are away elsewhere that weekend.

Hope it stays dry.

Don't get back from my European jaunt until the Sunday. I'll pray to the weather Gods for sunny weather mall over the UK - be a nicer ride back from Folkestone for me!!

Sounds good, although a quick scan of the online booking agents shows no availability for that weekend,
not tried phoning direct yet though.

Hi Chris, would certainly have been up for a trip to Hawes but Mrs C and I are away overseas to celebrate me stopping work :D .
Means I should be available for ALL future outings!

Chris

Its probably just a case of you / no-one registered an official Boxertrix weekend and run out a few months ago, so folk assumed there wasn't one.
Now they have got other things in the diary being so close to the date.

I'll turn up for the ride out if there is one at the very least, haven't ruled out a stopover yet, but have been deliberating a week in Brittany with a group of mates starting that weekend.

Might just get up to Hawes for some part of the weekend, Bike is back on the road after spending a year on SORN. First ride in a year today!!! Just lost my MOJO ---To much to do and not enough time to do it. Last time it was MOT'd (Aug 2015) Advisory for swing arm bearings and after reading all the horror stories on the www/forums I just could not face the work. Finally decided a couple of weeks ago that I needed to sort it and it turned out to be a doddle, MOT yesterday, Passed with no Advisorys , Just needs a good tidy up now and I look forward to hitting the 100k miles I always said I would .

Peter.
