Hi all,

I am a new member to this site, so just wanted to drop a quick intro,
I am based in the Manchester area, (anyone doing rideouts near by ?),
Have been riding for about 8 months,
Currently riding a 125 cruiser, and hoping to upgrade in the summer,
Looking forward to meeting some interesting people on here,
Possibly attend meets and more,

So yeah, Hi everyone :D !

Howdy!

What make is your cruiser?
I have a Honley HD3 SE 125 & I have thought about joining rideouts, but don't want to hinder those on faster bikes.

Hey man I got a Daelim Daystar 125,
Yeah not the fastest either, but I am still keen on joining some rideouts.

Know any fun routes ? :D

I had a look at those & Keeway Superlights before I got my Honley as I half fancied a cruiser for the seating position, but I thought they looked a little heavy for a 125.

Not yet as I haven't had that much chance to get out on the bike during daylight hours since I got it at the end of September.
As I live near Saddleworth I've tended to wander aimlessly toward Holmfirth, Halifax and that neck of the woods along with Littleborough, Chapel-En-Le- Frith & so on.
It's not that much fun in the dark though on unlit roads, with quite a poor headlight.

I keep meaning to go and see what the Cat & Fiddle ride is like & generally get out a bit more at weekends now the weather's a bit warmer & we are starting to see more daylight.

Sounds like you two need to pick a MacD, agree a date between you and then put a ride out up as an "L" 125 friendly.

Welcome!

The cat and fiddle is great fun even on a 125. Go from Buxton side so it's downhill on the fun part once you're on the run into Mac it's great 8-).

Would that be via Buxton Old Road or the A537?

Yes man it is pretty heavy for a 125, but its still pretty good fun to be honest.

And will definitely organise a 125 friendly route some time soon !
