Eek, I just booked to arrive on the Fri, stay until Sun, camping.

My last bike rally was the Rock N Blues at Pentrich, may have been 1997. My friend's pink Z1000 broke down on the M1 and I went shooting past, nowhere to turn round obviously, she thought I'd abandoned her. Got my XS400 stuck in the mud, got pulled out by a bunch of burly Hell's Angels (who organised the rally), got a tattoo of a dragon holding a skull, and saw a crackin' AC/DC tribute band. Jethro Tull headlined. Had a blazing row with my BF when I returned from the rally because my friend with the Z1000 who eventually made it to the rally, saw me with my ex, who had gone because he lived nearby.

At least I still have the tattoo but I no longer have the BF, or the friend with the Z1000 or my XS400.

My last BSAOC rally was another good one. I spent all weekend in agony with a kidney infection. Hope this one goes better.

Wotcha.

I don't think the HA would thank you for saying the Rock N Blues was their event whistle

Sounds like a fun weekend.

Will my Bantam be fixed by then?

 

As for the "Angels".......

Well, if they leave me alone then I'll leave them alone.

Thank you all,

I could agree with you, but then we would both be wrong

That's what I was told at the time... although that might have been to scare me! out-a-here

Got to look for a new tent. Him Indoors took it to Madagascar and left it with a conservation group so they could use it when out doing surveys. All for a good cause, but now I am tent-less! It's an opportunity to get a compact one for tying on the back of the bike.

But the Angels did organise the Kent custom show, as a spotty 16 year old turning up on my RS100 you were very aware this wasn't somewhere to muck about with anyones bike!

Today I asked Him Indoors if he wanted to come to Wiston for the club rally. All I can think is the sun must have got to him, because I was expecting a complete lack of interest. But I nearly dropped my tea when he said he'd drive the car, bring the dogs, carry all the camping stuff, and provide breakdown backup.

He will probably get bored really quickly but if I let him bring a guitar he will entertain himself / annoy everyone. Apologies in advance.

I do like a good guitar player, I had six lessons and was told by the teacher I had no sense of timing or rhythm and i should pack up, i can play a bit of smoke on the water, but am more of a free styler, I blamed it on being left handed.  lots of overdrive and a bit of reverb is my style and very loud. if your ears aren't bleeding then it's not loud enough. What i fail on in technique I make up with enthusiasm.   Dookie with your other half and Lone wolf we have a making of a Band, any drummers going ?

I might even bring some of the songs i have written along with me.

I regret to announce that Him Indoors is now unavailable to play/sing at the club rally due to an unfortunate administrative error. Ticket holders will be reimbursed or offered a replacement ticket of similar value from a range of alternatives. Please select from the following options:

A: Glastonbury 2016. B: One Direction at The Hammersmith Apollo. C: The Wurzels at The Red Lion, Skegness.

The organisers apologise for any disappointment caused.

That is a shame has I have just had me bongos re tuned, but there is always the symphony of Bantam engines to listen to.

I will take option D, neither of them.

Just to add that there is nothing to stop you attending the show without having sent an entry form, but even as a Club Member you will have to pay at the gate and will not be able to exhibit your bike/s.

Just sent off my form electronically, confirmed as successfully sent.

Having applied electronically, do I need to do anything else before arriving?
