look,s like i will not be able to attend , my house is still for sale and until it sell,s i will be going nowhere . but on the bright side as soon as it sell,s i am off .... so maybe i will have some interesting tales to tell at next year,s meeting . to all who are going have fun , and i hope it stay,s dry and sunny for you all .
Can anyone point me in the right direction as to how I can get a ticket to this meeting?
Is there a list where you can put your contact details and be contacted by anyone who cannot attend??
Sorry Orrin, we are FULL - and have a long waiting list.
We really don't want to close the doors, we'd like to have everyone who wants to come get in, but the facilities are limited and we are already bursting at the seams, as anyone who was there last year could tell you, when we had 100 less than we have squeezed in this year. Food availability, camping space, plus the all important fire regs, and a survey of attendees last year, say that's it.
There will be a VERY limited number of day passes available, but NO camping allowed, bikes parked outside the gates. (Any bikes left overnight will probably disappear due to the hooligans in the neighbourhood... )
When the day passes are gone, they're gone. Starting Thursday at 10.
We ARE looking for larger facilities for next year, but don't hold a lot of hope - we DO plan THREE events next year, if we can secure the locations over the next few months.
DO check out the Summer HUMP - details on the meetings page.
Location: Cornwall, in the far southwest of England, UK
Back in 1993 I re-call attending a HUGE biker meeting at the Bath & West Showground. This particular venue could easily handle 1000+ HU-member attendees - prolly up to > 5,000 wouldn't be a problem. All the facilities you could wish for are right there too.
These sites are around that's for sure - BUT, I wonder what the hire costs would be?
A biker was knocked down as he was leaving Lumb farm this morning (10 ish). I didn't actually see it but the police on the scene said he hit a car that turned straight across the road in front of him.
The car was driven by a 75 year old fella who 'didn't see him'. The biker was Paul Therma?? from Northumberland on a DRZ. He sustained a broken leg, collar bone plus other injuries.
If I can be of help (I live Nottingham) with bike storage, bike kit etc he is welcome to make use of my garage. Susan has my number.
Thanks to everyone who stopped to help, I wasn't really aware of things going on around me but I knew there were plenty of you lot that stopped to help. I'm back home now and considering what happened I was lucky to only suffer a broken left collarbone, broken right hand and two very bruised but thankfully not broken legs. Can't write a lot about the incident primarily because I only remember a big bang then the odd sensation of being in the air with my legs over my head, after that is pretty much a blank until being in the back of the ambulance, but also because there will be a police prosecution going on, thankfully for the other guy to worry about, not me. don't know anything about the bike yet, the annoying thing being i'd only had it for 3 weeks on the sunday and the new v5 was waiting for me when i got home. thanks for the offer of transport but the bike is under care of the police at the moment and won't be released until they've finished with it.
