Being new to the scene I have no idea if this is any good, but a few people I know in Peterborough are intending to go along again and say it is a good event. I might pop over as a good excuse to get some more miles on the new bike.

I don't know the show, but tbh it looks a bit shite. If you're going for the trade stands, this is what's promised:
Trade Stands, Exhibitors and Clubs

* Classic Coatings
* Wheels Motorcycles
* Leather Genie – leather cleaning
* C P Racetec – braided hoses
* Flippin Good
* Jayne’s Designs – gifts clothes & jewellery
* Tim Green – army kitbags, brushes etc
* Christopher Morris – books
* Fat Maggot Clothing
* Coffee Rush
* The Food Van
* Portsonachan Hotel
... which seems like the making of a not very great event.
But if you're going along with mates, then that might be half the fun of the day.

[mention]bonio[/mention] I saw that and drew the same conclusion. It's close enough to me that I might go just for the ride out.
[mention]fq-craigus[/mention] what makes you keep going?!

Because it's in Spalding and I'm only in Boston so 15 mins away. Usually go with some mates too. The canteen food is alright too lol
