Hi from Reading

Hi there. My name is Alec and I have just signed on up to the club. I have a Ducati 749 and this is my first Ducati after having Japanese bikes since I was a lad. Hopefully I am going to get out on the next Sunday run and am looking forward to meeting up with other Ducati bods!

Welcome to the club Alec!

Your copy of Pronto magazine went in the post yesterday (as I posted it myself!) and your account has been upgraded to full membership status.

Your membership pack should arrive shortly

For now, make sure you get your name in the draw for the spot on the MotoGP dinner if you're interested... http://www.ducatisportingclub.com/sh...d.php?p=801681

Hi Craig - thanks for the welcome. Is there any ride out from Newbury or are the local riders hitting Popham? Either way I am up for a blast out. What sort of time? I will be the tall bloke trying to look casual peeling himself off of his small Ducati.

Hi Alec. There is usualy a group of the Oxford crew that meet Newbury way usualy Nelsons Diner at Kingsclere or Mc D's at Newbury then ride on down to Popham. But they are at Pembry this weekend. Midday onwards people will turn up. There is another ride out from Loomies cafe in Hampshire with a few peeps riding into Popham. Believe it or not I'm coming by car this week as Just had a nose job and I cant put a helmet on yet or else I would have meet you and rode down.

(don't forget to ride all the way down to the club house - ignore the car park sign).

Some of us meet at Loomies Cafe GU32 1JX at 11:00 for the ride to Popham SO21 3BD.

PLEASE KEEP THE SPEED DOWN WHILST ON THE AIRFIELD ROAD

Join up for a chat and rideout.


Directions

Coming from London M3 take left fork onto A303 just past junction 7. Continue past airfield and take slip road to Micheldever Station to double back other side of A303.

Coming from the West along A303 take slip road for Overton/Micheldever Station, and continue as if going back onto A303.

Coming from Winchester turn left at M3 junction 9 onto A34 then fork right onto A33. Continue until left turn to Micheldever just past Ideal Garage. Follow signs to Overton. Turn right immediately after going under A303 flyover
