Hi all

Good news have sorted out a date with the guys at the Ace cafe,and they are really up for the idea, 30th september we are calling it Bantams at the Ace.

Plenty of parking if you want to trailer or van the bikes down.

Not a club event as such, just thought it would be a good venue to have a gathering, show those ton up boys on their fancy four strokes we can still cut it on our old twostrokes.

If I get enough interest I may even pursuade Bournemouth Bantams to put up a couple of prizes. Sugestions on catagories please before the end of July. must be open to all bikes attending so nothing like best restoration or most original etc.

I'd really love to go - it's the day after my birthday but will not tell husband as I've a feeling birthday present (I've already hinted at how nice diamonds are!) will be forgotten about in all the excitement! BUT.  Will anyone mind if I don't turn up with the Bantam?  It's just that I don't know the way without my beloved SatNav and I don't think I'd be confident enough to ride there anyway!

Me and Sara havn`t worked out what combination of car/bike/trailer  or just to ride the bikes there yet ,but where do you live? We might be able to pick you up on the way. I work in London and I commute from Wiltshire. Actually  the railway depot I work at called old oak common is only 4 miles from the Ace !

I'll be there, On either my D3 or if I rebuild it before then, the D10. In which case I'll get my brother to ride the other one, might try to get my boss on his C15 (controversial I know!)

Good work Howard!

Thought about furthest travelled, but would have to be riden not trailered, one other thought is "the one I would like to take home" i know that is very general but i would like the prizes open to all commers.

If you're putting the prize can it not just be 'Bournemouth Bantam's pick of the bunch' ...?

Like this one Steve, so have decided there will, be two prizes Furthest ridden and Bournemouth Bantam's pick of the bunch.

If necassary distance will be determined by sat nav based on shortest route avoiding motorways between post codes.

 

From the responces so far within the forum and outside should be a good meeting.clap

Hi Doug!

That's so kind of you, but I live near Tunbridge Wells in Kent in a little village, so don't worry - it's just that I'm not confident riding following an accident  and haven't got my Bantie back from restoration yet. Must be handy working so close to the Ace Cafe - all those mods and rockers!!

I'll probably do stills and camcorder footage for the tube. I'll have to find out when the next banter comes out and put something in there, unless you already have Howard?
