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

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...
