hi giys and girls

just was wandering when the ace meeting is

bantam less now but was thinking of coming on either my old rs 100 or maybe my 1942 harley

i have found some more new old stock rear chains that i had last year the correct bantam size

would be able to bring some along 25pounds each
let me know if you want one

Wotcha.

 

I do believe it's Sunday 29th September thumbs-up

 

All being well, I shall attempt to get there . . .  same as last year - I'll make an overnight stay then venture to the Ace next morning.

 

Anyone interested in riding down from the Midlands ?

Thanks LW

If your in touch with Howard ... can you inquire if he would like the details to go on our Events calendar  ... I don't want to upset him as I realise he is not a fan of here

Just think other members might like some details

I looked on BBF but could not see any info

yep LW, 29th September was the date I recall.

Kath, even if Howard doesn't want to have any truck with BBC (more's the pity) then we should still flag it up as an event (and a  good one too).

OK ... I can put it on the events but a little more info like time of meet?  is there a run out? that sort of thing

If we cannot find that out I could put BB's contact on ... but not sure if I can without his permission

 

Edit -  Update info on Ace site    ** Please log in to view **

 

BBF has there will be a run out to the London Motorcycle Museum (this is dependent on getting insurance so may change)

 

Also there will be plenty of cake  ** Please log in to view **   

 

Everyone is welcome

 

Now on events  calendar

Wotcha.

 

Hmm - just received a letter.

September 2nd I have to go for a "health check"

September 16th I've got surgery to repair a hernia.

 

I don't know what the recovery time is, or if I'll be capable of riding a bike by the end of the month.

Once again, it will be a case of "suck it and see"

A two edged sword LW ... pleased your getting sorted out ... but sorry you may not be able to ride the Bantam ... If your fit enough I think Howard will be pleased to see you what ever you arrive on or in ... as he stated plenty of parking for all vehicles

 

It would be a shame to miss all that     ** Please log in to view **

Sad to report L.W. but having had three hernias (lucky me !) its pretty painful, whatever you do, DO NOT SNEEZE !

I was back on a bike after a week, it was a mistake though, hope it goes well.

 

 As for the ACE.

It was a great day out last year, hope to be there same as.

           I think I`ve ridden the bantam less times then I`ve got fingers on one hand this year! I have been busy trying to fix my wife's b.m.w 650,fuel injection was playing up, only took four years or so to fix it.

Don't worry about it I had one done about 20 years ago, was in hospital for 10 days in pain could'nt lift anything heavy for 6 months then about 8 years ago I was involved in an accident and among other things the hernia repair split open this time when they did it they have a new tecnique and I was in and out in a day and just a little bit sore and was able to carry on as normal within a week. Regards Basil. PS I think they glue some soert of mesh across it now.

hope-that-helps

We might bring up a Devon contingent and park up somewhere like Chinnor again and ride in. Do you want to hook up like last year?
