Anybody else going? I bought my tickets today, going with the family, as it happens

Oddly enough, the Stafford Show was where I first joined the Bantam Club in 2008 - does anybody know if there's a club stand there this year?

Wotcha.

I'm afraid the Stafford show is far too big for me to attempt to walk around - besides, the way Morton's Media treated me at Telford last year, there's no way I'd put money in their pockets.

Well done bill,you did really well there(no i didn't find any D5 air filters either)But without peeing on your bonfire,i can't see that steering lock working on the d5,i'd seen the same ones and at first glance i thought they'd fit to,but as i've got one of the correct ones,the one you bought won't work,unless your going to adapt it in some way.....

I see you met bantam john cant-lookyou can now truly call yourself a bantamite now...rofl

I called at Bantam John's pitch today, enquiring on some bits.

I asked the bloke if he was indeed Bantam John, he smiled and said NO!!!...he will be back in a few minutes....... to wit I said I thought not as its been said he's a bit curt sometimes.

He laughed and said your not the first one to say that..... what can I get you,??

I finally said thanks for the prices... shame I missed John I was looking forward to being insulted by the BEST.....

I have heard so much about this Bantam John bloke, is he really that bad ? if so how does he stay in business.

The steering lock was a tenner and I wasn't sure if it would fit either but as I hadn't even seen one before I thought it worth a punt.  I haven't had chance to try it yet but will do during the week. To be honest I was a bit giddy after getting the dip switch so it was a good job it was only a tenner! smile

....and yes, Bantam John really IS that bad, he's actually worse - I just thought my comments wouldn't get past the moderators if I wrote what I really thought of him. I was having a moment of conscience after I wrote my comments but then I typed his name into Google and realised from other people's comments that my own impression was probably spot on!

Congratulations to all on the Bantam Stand at Stafford for winning an award for the stand and its appearance - what a great achievement. 

Also a big thank you to Mike and Anne Kilvert for their support for the Club and supporting me as an Area Rep for South Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. I hope you enjoy your "retirement" as you hand over to Dave Lewis for 2016 , whom I am sure will keep up the good work.

Giles.
