Two stroke at the Ace in September.
I am not going to be able to arrange the meeting this year due to the imminent move to deepest darkest Cornwall, but have decided I will sort out a meeting and ride out from the village green in Lerryn, the new residence of Bournemouth Bantams on Sunday September 28th.
All two strokes welcome and I will even let in 2+2 if you turn up on one.
Free camping and plenty of storage for cars and trailers if you don't fancy a long ride in. Let me know in advance so I can sort out the logistics.
I will get Hilary to open up the shop and take away so Hot drinks, Pasties and Cream Teas should you wish to indulge.

Sorry to hear that you cancelled the Ace Howard, but totally understandable.

If circumstances were different, subject to Howard's approval, I would have taken responsibility for the meet in September.

Unfortunately I am in a similar situation to Howard with a move imminent.

It would be a shame to let the meet go as it was building up a good following. Is there anyone else available to take it on?

So just to get this correct : Your not going to drive up some 250 miles but you expect us to ride the same distance and more to some God forsaken place were they dont speek propper and will cut your throat for a brandy bottle ?

Could turn up on the Gold Star. The Bantam is awaiting an engine strip following a ride through a sand storm at Ostend during the Summer camp. Am going to refit the B175 air pipe and fill it with filter foam afterwards.

I have checked my extensive diary appointments (both sides of the apparently blank A5 sheet)

and I'll probably also be able to do this.  :)

Wotcha.

This 'ere Ace Cafe thing . . . all being well, I shall try to do what I did for the first one ( and failed on the second ) and spend Saturday night at Stokenchurch, then ride into the Ace on Sunday morning.

Anyone from this neck of the woods who is interested in doing something similar, speak up, and we can ride down together - the more, the merrier.
