Hi Members,
I don't think the absolute quantity of well-powered mobylettes is the problem, but the fact that most people are trapped in a system of wage slavery and personal obligations.
I used to avoid this partly by choosing jobs in the field of education.
A more serious problem is the large gap between the actual technical state of the average mobylette and its required condition. People, wisely, don't dare to face this challenge. Yet, you can make it all easier by driving to Wright by car and with some spare mobylettes in a truck.
Finally the number of people, that is able or willing to organise such a run to a foreign country is awfully limited, too.
Many people just enjoy restoring mobylettes, but riding on it more than one hour is not their cup of tea.
I guess you are right, when assuming only a few people from the continent will reach Wright.
H.

There are now two possibble weekends for this gettogether on the Isle of White. Weekend of the 3rd of june, or the weekend of the 10th of june. There's a campsite that will have us mobymaniacs and it looks like a beautiful place. ( www.carpentersfarm.co.uk/ ) If anybody's interested, let it be known here. Don't wait too long.

Er zijn nu twee mogelijke weekends voor dit samenzijn op The Isle Of White, Het weekend van 3 juni en het weekend van 10 juni. Er is een camping die ons Mobymaniakken wel wil ontvangen en die ziet er wel aantrekkelijk uit ( www.carpentersfarm.co.uk/ ). Laat hier weten, als je interesse hebt, maar wacht niet te lang.

Headcorn? In stead of I o White? Better for me logistically but I was hoping to visit the Isle! Still not sure if my MB is driveable around that time but I still are attending to come!

Thanks John for inviting us.

I really really want to come someday!

This year isn't possible for me. Hopefully next time, with a group of people from here.

Did you see the topic of our meeting? Save the date!

Hello John,
This date is far much better for me than the first week of June: Sars Poteries event in France!
As the distance for Dutch and Belgium people is limited compared to a start from Edinburgh, I consider riding from the south of The Netherlands to Kent by mobylette. My better half may need our car for her job and of course riding is more challenging.
Actually it's simpler to lay on: "Just saddle up your mobylette and go west boy!"
I know, most people see just clouds on the horizon; moreover for England you need a strong and reliable mobylette. My estimation is approximately 2-3 continental participants. More perhaps? Seeing is believing!
Regards,
Henk

Oh dear,
On the 15th of July I already have an appointment with a group of old friends.
Every year one of us gets the obligation to organise this yearly event.
Funny, every year is totally different,because of the change of theme and location.
Moreover it's more or less forbidden to speak all the time about the past.
Otherwise it would be a repeating boring obligation with the same old stories. It's also forbidden to speak more than 5 minutes about grand children or mopeds. . . .
Anyway it's obvious: Regrettably, I cannot join the Kent meeting,
Regards,
Henk
