1st. Historic Bike Summer Camp (UK)
« on: 16.04. 2014 19:50 »
Well here's one for the riders of this forum so let's see if anyone is interested.  It should be a good weekend with all makes of pre-1974 bikes attending.  Most of the one make clubs have been notified and invited and positive feedback has been received from most of them.

As you will see by the attached "Flyer" the camp is for pre-1974 bikes classed as "Historic Vehicles" and only this class will be allowed into the camping area.

We realise that this type of event won't suit a lot of our members but it will be great to meet up with those who are likely to enjoy this type of weekend.




Any questions?    Please ask either on the forum or by PM.

Beezageezauk.

Yes LP,  I thought long and hard at several venues and this one will take some beating.  Thanks for the thumbs up.

.... never went back ,wonder if it would be safe to try to go back ,only 47 yrs late ????? BobH.

Yeah, go for it Bob....I'm sure it will bring back happy mammaries, sorry I mean memories for you.  But apart from that I would be great to meet up with you.

Anybody else on this forum interested in meeting up??

Hi Shaun,

Let's hope that you're not working and then you'll be able to join in with the festivities all over the weekend.

(Please don't hate me!)

But if you are working please "don't hate me" when you're asked to keep your FJR outside.  However, day visitors are welcome but will need to sign in at the "Control Tent" and there will be a couple of quid entry fee.  Trusting that will be ok with you.

Whichever way you arrive it will be good to meet you.

My bike may be back on the road by then and the meeting appeals to me. It's about 200 miles from here but I am tempted.

Hi Graybeard,

Hopefully you will have your bike back on the road soon and be able to make it to meet up with the regular riders.  Don't procrastinate and miss out on too much of the riding season. 

We met up at the BSAOC National Rally and Open Day last year so at least I can put a face to the name.

Take care and ride safely.

Beezageezauk.

We moved house in January to be near our first grandaughter. My wife and I are working very hard with brother-in-laws help; adding a large conservatory, fitting out the loft with a floor and staircase, refitting the kitchen etc etc. I've had nowhere to put my motorbike until last week when my man-cave arrived. When I get the chance I'm going to bring the bike out of storage. I need to change the oil tank as it leaks. The speedo is currently being refurbished then I hope I'll be ready to roll.
I enjoyed meeting you last year. (Ray?) so it would good to meet again. We will see.
