    Default highland social night???

    I see that there are social get togethers in Glasgow, Dundee & various other places but nothing up in the dark depths of the Inverness area, I have been in contact with Hunter & Cateran & the opinion is that if we can drum up some interest that a meeting once every couple of months( or monthly) during the winter may be a good thing to get going, what do the members in the area think, I know that its a large area but if you fancy getting something started reply to this post please, its a long winter with the Dukes locked away so lets get together & at least talk motorbikes...:

    Great Ray, with Neil & Steve that makes four of us, is there no more of you guys & girls that fancy it , surely " strictly come bake a cake off " can't be more appealing??

    That is good Bob, I will start looking on the internetty thing & try to source ducati snow tyres for ST2, will let you know, also Derek may have some information on how to fit a heater as it can get a tad chilly up here at times.

    Oh that's easy. All you need is some flexy pipe on the exhaust and route it into your oversuit.

    Think with this idea one may resemble something of a cross between the Michelin man from the 80s and a inflated gimp in a suit

    To be fair though I think because we tough uns are so farrrrrr north there would only be a few off us who could make anything off this idea. But that said my instinct says that the few would be very interested, so yeh go for it and set a date for later this month (November) I'd say Inverness to start with although I've the furthest to get there but I'm up for it. Could do drumnadrochit or Beauly (Cateran) next

    I'm pleased you managed to get this going Stuart, looking forward to it a lot now. And maybe I'm out off order here but I'm thinking ahead to December in that we could have a wee heiland xmas do ourselves not sure about the Tayside brotherhoods venue but the weegie chapter seem to favour Italian restaurants and we have yon wee place up from eastgate on Stephens brae. Failing that Pizza is Italian we could go to Pizza Hut
