There's another Overland Adventure Tour Bike Day at the Ace Cafe on Sunday 21st February. From 9 to 5. Are you going? Last year's event was excellent.

Last years was a very good enjoyable day. I bought so many books I'm still reading them!
Sadly I'll be in France on the 21st so I can't get there this time. Hopefully a few people will post pics / do write up.

See you there-and recommended good day out to all

Hi

I'm planning to be there, and it looks as if its going to be an owner's club ride out as there a bunch who say they up it.

Guess the bike ?

(There may be cake if you guess right)

For the second year running I'll be away touring. Pity.

Wrong, wrong & wrong. No where near as exotic or impractical as that I'm afraid.

Hint : I was at Ripley 2009 and I believe the only one there.

Are those on 4 wheels (or who did their trips on 4 wheels) eligible for these Ace Cafe meetups?

Yes, why not. The only issue is parking. Their carpark will be full of bikes. I parked my van in the street last year.
cheers

This isn't a HU event. For all details, please visit the Ace Cafe website.

I believe Grant and Susan, Austin Vince and Lois Pryce, Touratech amongst others will have a presence. Last year there were talks by Austin, Simon Gandolfi (and others? I can't remember). Austin, HU and Sam Manicom had stands selling books and dvds, the carpark was full of bikes and people stood around and chatted.

This year: Probably similar.
