Hi Andrew many thanks for your message. Roger get's out when he can in the week and at weekends.  I usually ride with him on Tuesday (we were out today) or Thursday longish mornings but there are pilots who ride with him at weekends as well. I am sure he would be delighted to hear from you.  His mobile number is 07835 303511. My number is 07785 920646 if you'd like to speak with me first.

Hi Andrew

Sunday afternoon is good. Just let me know roughly what time to expect you. I will be at the Birmingham Buddhist Centre, 11 Park Road which is off the main Alcester Road (Tipu Sultan is on the corner). My phone numbers are 449 9997 and mobile 07773 295251. Look forward to seeing you.

Hi Andrew

I figured I'd be lucky to get anything for it, and no one else has expressed an interest, so it's up to you. If you'd like to come round and have a look just let me know when. Or I am happy to bring it to Kings Heath anytime in daylight.

Alright there Andrew. Good to see you here, albeit virtually...
