The "Bay Horse"
To celebrate our anniversary, it was agreed that the club was to have a club weekend camp, open to members: past and present and their families. The chosen destination was Dent in Cumbria on the border of the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. See the pictures on the following pages. ( those bloody midges !! )
You can meet us at the "Bay Horse"

In October 1985 "Dukesy" left the club and Paul "Routy" Routledge took over as number 1, it was around this time that I ("Snelly") joined the club,along with some other reprebates including "Wilky" "Philys" "Mick" "Beever" and "Jez" . I was actually given Dukesy's patches. (One of our club rules is that our patches are the property of the club and if anyone leaves they must be returned, which we think makes us even prouder to wear our colours because they are not generally available like a lot of other patches).
By 1988 the club had about fifteen members including "Hubbard" "Braif" "Nick" "Scotty" "Russfish" and "Kenny" and we were attending nearly every national rally with full club turnout to rallies including...Scarbrough, Morecambe, Great Yarmouth, Girvan and Dunbar. In fact if you didn't attend a rally you were guaranteed a right bollocking and a serious amount of piss taking at the next meeting. The club once organised it's own rally to the Lake District, when the prospect of a south coast rally was too much to bear.
In 1990 Routy left the club and I took over as number 1, but by 1994, like many others the club was dying on it's feet and at one point we were down to just 5 rally going members, they were...Myself, "Wilky", "Pants", "Woody" and "Sid", but we soldiered on and slowly but surely the membership started to increase again. I stepped down as number 1 in 1999, although I am still a member of the club. Jason Taylor took over as number one and he introduced a few changes to the club, things like... an annual membership fee, rather than subs and all the money goes back to the members either in subsidising b&b's or T.Shirts or whatever, we also now have a club newsletter every couple of months, legshield banners, our very own-very large club flag and of course this web site, we also had our first shin dig at the end of November 2000 which was a huge success.
During the last 23 years the club has had many ups and downs, but I think if you asked any member, past or present, they would all say that they have had a right good laugh while being in the club.
Some personal memories that spring to mind and they are quite funny aswell include..... Woody grass-tracking across a roundabout on the way to Great Yarmouth (no one had told him he was meant to go around it!!!!). Wilky being threatened with expulsion from the RAC for abusing their relay & recovery service. Myself overtaking 4 other scooters (showing off) only to slam into the back of a car on the way to Morecambe. The back up van to Girvan containing a full 3-piece suite (!!!!), 40 gallons of erm rather dodgy diesel and various hitch hikers picked up along the way. Having a bit of a row with another local club at Morecambe which was starting to get nasty when some local lads started to take the piss out of us, where upon all arguments were forgotten as we grouped together to give the locals a kicking, those were the days.
Have a scooter tour in Madrid
If you travel for the first time to Madrid, you must see at least the major tourist attractions that are spread all over Spain’s capital city. Madrid will delight your eyes with its perfect blend of new and old architecture and culture. Enjoy a scooter tour around the tourist hotspots, meet a charming escort Paris and do not drive back home without tasting the delicious tapas. Here are some of the best things you can do in Madrid.
Spend your vacation in Madrid
Start your scooter tour in Madrid from Conde Duque cultural center. Get to know the Community of Madrid region and the beautiful surroundings. Move freely in the capital city and pass by Templo de Debod, Palacio Real and impressive building of Senado. Take a few photographs in Plaza de Oriente, this rectangular spot in the historic centre of Madrid and drive further to Teatro Real and Cathedral de la Almudena. Praise the Lord from this majestic church then head to the Royal gardens to catch your breath and reconnect with nature.
Your scooter will next take you and your ravishing escort Paris to Madrid Rio, the green heart of the city. This recreational and cultural area parallel to Manzanares will allow you to contemplate and come into contact with monumental Madrid, so you should not miss this tourist attraction. Drive to Train Station Principe Pio, Plaza de la Villa and the contrasting Plaza Mayor, observe the main differences between these two plazas and let your eyes be charmed by the details of Casa de la Villa, Casa de Cisneros, Torre de los Lujanes and The Statue of Alvaro de Bazan.
Take your lovely escort Paris for a stroll to San Miguel Market and relish with the tasty tapas served in numerous venues. This place aims to be known as a Centre for Culinary Culture, so make sure you will not leave on empty stomach from San Miguel Market. Hop on your scooter again and drive to La Latina, this chic neighbourhood in the centre of Spain’s capital. This is actually the oldest area in Madrid, encompassing the Islamic citadel inside the city walls.
Large squares and enchanting narrow streets are great for a scooter tour, so do not hesitate to explore properly this area that looks similar to a traditional pueblo right in the heart of the city. The ninth-century fortress – Almudena – and Medina look astonishing under the hot sun so it is no wonder that they are such a popular tourist destination. An appealing escort Paris will be your guide
In case you and your tempting escort Paris are drawn to history and culture, you must not miss the wonderful museums in this city. CaixaForum Museum, Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, Reina Sofia Museum, Museo Nacional Del Prado, Sorolla Museum and National Archeological Museum of Spain. Refresh with a mouth-watering ice cream, savour a paella and get rid of your scooter before trying a delicious sangria. Explore the wonders hidden all over Madrid on a scooter and be accompanied by a sexy escort Paris. She will be your perfect guide and you will have a fantastic adventure together. Venture on the streets of Spain’s capital city and enjoy the wild nightlife!
