When about's in Sept? If you're here on the 18th/19th/20th then that's the BMF tail end weekend. We can then teach you Aussies how to drink. :lol
It's held in Peterborough, which is about 1/2 way up the country, but as you know, we're not a very big place. :laugh

Bloody southerners, I'm 2.5 hours north of Peterborough and still only halfway up the country :laugh

Tail End show would be a good way to meet a lot of the UK guys in one hit, but you know you're more than welcome to pop in if your passing York on the way north to Scotland, we can talk Lathes, Mills and Engines :laugh

You could also pop down to France and see a bit of the Somme Stu the WW1 memorials are really awe inspiring.

Consider camping - it's cheap and well I thought it was fun :D
Be warned that any thing of interest - castle, museum, battleground, jumble of rocks - they've put a fence around and will charge you a tenner to have a look at it :dowhat
We loved Ireland :)

Don't think it was too bad a guess considering I didn't look at a map. :)

2.5 hours!!! Perhaps you should learn to ride up those yorkshire hills a bit quicker! :laugh Or is that because you were in the van?

It was a slow drive, anything that involved corners or roundabouts had the empty contents of my stomach trying to escape again :puke

Unloading the 2 bikes out of the van and carrying the engine into the garage had me looking quite green :laugh



Anyway, Leeds isn't the top of the country and don't forget the little bit of Scotland above that if we're been fussy :lol

Perhaps we should get Stu to do the cavalcade and talk to the judges, to show the cosmopolitan nature of TLZone.! :laugh

Nobody did it this year, Ted said he wasn't prepared to ask anyone to go on the tack after the scooters had torn it up in the morning aparently.
