Hi John

Welcome to the site.
Great choice of bike - good luck in the hunt.

I've track day'd twice and toured Germany, Spain, Wales, England and Scotland and it ticks those boxes for me.

Our first BIG meet this year is WEE Mac on Saturday 30th April.
Unfortunately the Thundercat is outnumbered by a myriad of other bikes on this rideout but is still very capable. Some of the attendees have had a Thundercat previously and are hanging around here and sticking with our rideouts because they company is great and the rideouts are ace.

If we don't manage to answer all your questions on here then you can ask them in person if you fancy meeting us en-route,pre-route or post route.

We will be in Livingston on night of Friday 29th and the night of 30th. The route hasn't been completely sussed yet but will be south, west and east of Livingston.

Cheers
Rosco

Cheers for the welcome.

surprised to see so many folk from my local area on here but i've never seen any cats round here. you must just all hide.


Haven't looked on gumtree to be honest, just ebay just now and my uncle is part of the minehoff's and he looking for me and my dad is also in some of the local clubs so he looking. Moving house this weekend then onto finding a cat. Roll on the fun
