1970's northern working mans' club rather than at the festival.

Nowt wrong wi a bit O Northern Soul   :eusa_dance

I hope they managed to at least break even, after all, if they don't survive our future biking events are going to be rarer and possibly overcrowded, I wonder if smaller local events will benefit or if meeting all the HSE criteria will just be too much  :icon_scratch: I know we struggled with our annual show even before this all kicked off.

I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint

I think they will do more than break even.
8000 people, roughly £100 a ticket.  Loads spent inside.
I think it is probably a bit of a money spinner.

Phil, the vibe was very relaxed and helpful. People were mixing well and happy. Wide a wide variety of bikes too. You would be surprised what constitutes adventure too.

Ivor and I saw some guy ride in on a hayabusa!

 :icon_eek: I feel less guilty, for that I would have been hoping for at least a guest Ed Shearan appearance or even Coldplay :icon_lol:

The 'Busa is less left field than you might think, granted more of a hyper sports tourer. I knew quite a few guys out east that would happily strap bags to the back of them and head off for a week or two around Malaysia and Thailand. Having ridden a friend's for a decent varied distance, I can sort of see it, they are more comfortable than they look, a bit of a handful in heavy traffic and not for venturing further off piste than a campsite.

What's that? Spend an extra £100 not to have cold play or Ed Sheeran?

Seems very reasonable.

Bit of a bargain, £100 for the two of them not to play  :icon_mrgreen:

A fight between Ed Sheeran and Chris Martin would be entertaining though.

Stormin' The Castle is now sold out, no tickets on the gate either. a shame as a few of we locals were going to go there and drink too much. I suppose that I should be grateful that someone is trying to look after my health.
It\'s ok , this will only take 5 minutes.
