PostSubject: Wellington Social Rides   Tue Feb 18, 2014 7:01 pm

Hey guys,

Well, a little while back I started a "Ton-up!" group for the Wellington area with the hopes of getting together some guys and girls interested in riding and showing off their customised rides.

If you're interested in some social riding (I'm talking about short rides with a cold pint) around Wellington, then you can head over to this link:
LINK >>>> Ton-Up!  <<<< LINK
Or if the link doesn't work, just copy and paste this:  http://www.meetup.com/Ton-Up-Wellington-Cafe-Racer-and-Custom-Motorcycles

If you join up, you can create your own rides and it'll notify all the members - and of course, post on here as well.  Also, if you join you're under no obligation to actually do anything either, it just means you have the option of tagging along.

I had a bit of a slow speed stack the day before New Years Eve and busted my leg (of course I threw myself between my bike and the car, so the bike's much better than I am!), so I've been out of action for the past two months - BUT hoping to get a social ride in within the next couple of weeks.


Cheers all,
Coss.

Great idea. I like the format of the site. How about posting some pics of the rides?

Hey, glad you like it - the website is perfect for organising events, but unfortunately the demographic for people using meetups appears to be slightly averse to the idea of a customized motorcycle social group, so membership has been slow to build.
I'm in another group on there, and they do lots of regular riding and are getting quite big, but they mostly ride stock and are really just in it to ride.
So we've only had one ride so far and no photos.

Breaking my leg in the middle of summer was a bit of a hindrance too!


FYI: I've just organised a ride from Wellington Motorcycles at 10:45am on Sunday the 9th/March to the Polished Rockers gig.

If anyone is keen on this, then just go to the site and register!

I've added the ride to the Wellington Motorcycle Fun Riders (another meetup group) to see if anyone from their group is keen to ride out... 4 people are attending now, which is great news.

Since I work at wmc and have to go there 5 days a week,the thought of going there on a sunday doesn't appeal to me,but hey I will jump on my shovel and ride over to the event it should be good.

lol the suffering! :-)

If you live out the hutt or up the coast, I can sort out a stop on the way.

Hey you have my ride in your workshop at the moment (the black Street Rod)...slightly damaged after my little stack a while back.
I hope it's sorted before the Polished Rockers show!
