Aberdeen Bike Night

Post by Granite » Sat Aug 01, 2015 9:53 am

Aberdeen Bike Night is on tonight (1st August) at 7pm on the upper carpark deck of Asda Garthdee.
I attended the Perth Bike Night last weekend. Was a good night despite the torrential downpour.
Bikes and bikers of all shapes and sizes.
£2 entry for charity and biking memorabilia auction.
This event was publicised in the Evening Express last week.

I went along and it was pretty rubbish to be fair! Just a load of bikes in a car park and people furiously collecting donations in charity buckets! Bit of a let down.

Good turn out though and loads of nice bikers and there steads showed up! Just a lack of things to do unfortunately!

Wasn't well advertised either. I didn't know anything about it until I tried to park the car up there to get some shopping in.

Shame, I'm always up for an opportunity to speak pish with other bikers.

Was all over facebook which subsequently appears to be the death of a few good forums!

A few of the forums I frequent are all starting to dwindle in numbers and content as social media sites like facebook gain more popularity from 'groups'.

The social media groups are fine for chit chat and quick conversations in the present but they lack the history which is useful for technical information etc.

They all have their uses.
