The ride out on Saturday night to Lechlade. Can I just say a big thanks to all who helped organize this great event. I only just managed to attend and collapsed early totally exhausted each night into my bed. It was worth the effort , my wife Sara and I met so many wonderful new people . It was equally good to meet all the comitee members who work so hard to make events like this happen. So many bantams in one place 🌞

Belated thanks to everyone involved in the organisation and running of this year's rally at South Cernay; and to everybody whose company I enjoyed so much. Hopefully see you all again next year at Stow cum Quy.

Having only just joined the Bantam Club I trundled off to South Cerney to enjoy a VERY HOT weekend and would like to thank all of you that I meet for being so warm and welcoming. 

I also did the ride out and would like to apologise to others for slowing them down as my d1 wouldn't let me use more than half throttle. All sorted now, it was sediment ( the polite way of putting it) in the carb bowl. 

Bantampano2compressed.jpgjourney on the back of the trailer had stirred up the sediment in the carb bowl.

Here is a picture of most of the members in the arena. Use the scroll function to go from left to right.

There don't seem to have been many posts about the rally but I enjoyed it, too. In fact, I'm already looking forward to next year's near Cambridge. Ken.

I couldn't find a 'dedicated' post so thought General topics as good as any.

ADMIN EDIT:- moved to existing Topic

I also filmed Friday nights ride out on my helmet camera, which is much to large to put on here. I will try to get it onto a disk at some point just in case somebody else wants to see it. 

ADMIN NOTE:- Upload to Youtube and post the link in this Topic.

If you have trouble sleeping you could always count Bantams instead of sheep!!!!

I suppose I've always presumed that when counting sheep you'd bore yourself to sleep but would that work with Bantams; or would you just lay awake wondering what was coming next ?

True, I hadn't thought of that!
