Topic: Just saying Hello from Warkworth
Recently joined the club so thought i would introduce myself - Brad, Brian, or jake are the most common names i get called. I live up in Warkworth.
I called in at Ashington Rugby club for the talk on the ride to Egypt and met a few folk some who i already knew. I may tootle along on a ride out now and again to get to meet a few of you have a chat and a cuppa.
My preference is to travel and tour on my bike, having ridden all over the place from UK, Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, USA, into bits of Africa and so on. But I'm just as happy to jaunt around Northumberland and the borders or the Yorkshire dales on the smaller back roads for a few hours.
These days I don't ride anything too old - I used to have a few brits - Enfield 700 super meteor and and a trumpet t140. However my preferred bikes have usually been Italian, but really i like all bikes and have a bit of an interest in the engineering and design more so of anything odd or offbeat to the norm. For practical purposes at the moment I currently only have the one bike a Cagiva elefant (Ducati engined trail type bike from the 1980's). Thats if you can call a Ducati - practical !
I am looking to find another Guzzi - sp1000 or similar maybe later this year.
See you sometime on the road. Brad.
