Hi All!  :wave Any of you guys heading to the Classic Bike Show on at Stafford over the weekend?  :^_^

If you're heading that way, give me a shout back and we can meet up (Socially-distanced of course!) :occasion14  :thumbsup

I'll probably be there on the Sunday, looking for bits for my old XT550. Let's hope the weather holds! :augie

There's a few things happening this weekend that i was thinking of doing, the national Road Rally was one, the ICBS was another.

Turns out Mrs L has booked a meal for her sisters birthday, so sadly, I have to go to Southend on Saturday at 5pm, rush the meal as the other side of her family are Ballfooting mad and there's some sort of kick around happening, then we're all off somewhere on Sunday too.  :icon_sad:
No matter how smart you are you can never convince someone stupid that they are stupid.

Nothing quite like a Hobby that doesn't fit the rest of your families life, or the British weather.....

Sorry dude. Lady Calne and I are booked in for a dinner with my cousins on Saturday.

Have you asked Sin, Stenners and Canning? Surely they'd be up for it!

If what I see on TV is representative, you could be forgiven for thinking nobody does that anymore  :m . There are over 1k of Jockanese F'ball suporters who are now regretting their idiocy  :cp

It'd be really good to catch up but I'm not coming down for it this year, Mortons still keep asking though  :icon_rolleyes: Last time I heard from the Sten, they were staying in France until Sep / Oct.

Are you still looking for that Speedo  :icon_eek: ?

How did the ABR Jamboree go? We need a proper report please  :thumbsup

Not many about this time round.






I could just about afford this one!

It looked fairly quiet on the day you visited… At least you got to see the bikes well, but not a good thing for the people paying for the stands… ;)

Not as many exhibitors, club stands or component stalls as usual. But yes, it helped to be able to get a look at things  a little easier.

Damn, I threw one of those Airfix C15 kits in the plastic recycling bin not that long ago  :BangHead

I feel sorry for the small one man outfits that made the effort, hope they managed to cover their overheads.
