    First Post , had my ‘01 93 SE vert for nearly 3 years now , bought it to do an Italian tour 2 years ago , paid £500 for it , did 3000 miles over 3 weeks and she never missed a beat,was going to sell it on my return but was smitten and have since spent far too much money and time and think this may be a permanent relationship! Have googled a few problems and always found the forum useful so will be happy to help in return if I can be positive and useful.
    I live on the Kent/SE London border and will keep an eye out for any summer meets , if there are any?

    There are a few down there from time to time. Look at Quad Cam Turbo posts. Also the monthly `Essex meet ay Halfway House, on Southend Arterial Rd, isn't far. Look at Ursa Minor's Posts.

    my ears were burning...

    Welcome! By Kent/SE London border I presume you mean Bromley?
    There are a few groups about, one is meeting on the 16th though even if the weather is nice, that'd be a good 90 minute journey for you.

    I often try to arrange a meeting in Westerham once a year - The Grasshaopper on the A22 - and we get a good mix.

    I too have a vert that seems to have had a lot of folding spent on it.

    The Italian trip sounded good.

    Must go to Italy sometime. Apparently they eat a lot of spaghetti? They serve it 3 times a day in the prisons. (According to Noel Coward)

    Welcome

    There is a meeting on 16th December at Mark Cross in Sussex, not too far from Brands really. Check it out in the Meetings section, be good to see you there.
    Quad_cam_turbo, are you up for it?

    It'll be a challenge. If the weather is nice then maybe, but I'm busy all morning until about 1pm, and that may overrun. I'll post up if that changes mind.
