Definitely maybe, might have the Morini then, might not but then you wouldn't appreciate it anyway Gus. Most probably if I did go it'd be on the decidely un-classic Suzuki.

I quite like the sound of this - definitely the Trophy and maybe the Beemer if I can a- persuade my wife to come along and b- persuade her to ride the said Beemer there.
Sounds good

All the show bikes are 'tagged' - if you haven't got the matching counterfoil that goes with your bike's tag you can't get out, and the racecourse gates are locked up at night (perhaps I should have mentioned, just for the uninformed, the venue is Uttoxeter Racecourse)
Also, much as with the Virago Owners, the plan would be to not be camped very far away from the bikes.
Additional : If there are any tea-leaves there, then there are likely to be FAR more attractive targets !
Any opportunistic thieves are likely to be day visitors anyway, rather than folks camping for the duration, so they'll have f*cked off out of it by teatime.
I'm not aware of any theft issues over the years that the show has been running.

I'd be interested, subject to me buying something suitable in the meantime - anyone know of a sensibly priced Laverda anywhere? :)

I will come to this, it will be the social event of the year.
Will Pippa Middleton be attending?
I should be on the Triumph but if/when it blows up will be on the Ducati.

Nope, she tried to blag her way in, but I told the saggy arsed, horse faced, skank where to get off.

I'm just a bit anxious (paranoid?) about my Velton - if it is ready - as it is basically a pile of expensive, easily detached parts!
Alloy fuel tank only held on by a catch, for example.
Still, the chances of it being roadworthy are not amazingly high. :cry:
Just being old doesn't make it a "Classic."

Aaaah! Nostalgia is not what it used to be!
