UKBEG Main Event - Emma Radford Buell Festival - Saturday 18th July 2009.
To be held at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre
East Kirkby, near Spilsby
Web site: http://www.lincsaviation.co.uk
This will be our sixth event at this location dedicated to the memory of one of our members, Emma Jane Radford, who passed away 22-04-04, aged just 26. We'll also be raising money for the Papworth Hospital Cystic Fibrosis unit which looked after Emma. Last year we had 280+ bikes, which included 105 Buells, and raised over £1200.00.
In addition to Buell motorcycles, there'll be Italian bikes from Aprilia, Cagiva, Ducati, Morini and Moto Guzzi. British bikes will include Brough Superior, Hesketh and Vincent.
Buell UK will support the event and will have a selection of their current Buell range available for escorted test rides around the stunning Lincolnshire Wolds. You must produce a full motorcycle licence if you wish to have a test ride.
The event will include a Lancaster bomber taxi-run display. If you like Rolls Royce V12 Merlin engines at full chat and red-blooded V-twin motorcycles, you'll really appreciate this event!
The provisional timetable is as follows:
10.30 am Start time
12.00 noon to 1.00 pm Photo-call for bikes with the Lancaster
1.30 pm Lancaster bomber taxi-run
3.30 pm Lancaster bomber taxi-run
The admission charge is £6.00 per person. 'Girls on Buells' get in free - this applies to riders and
Please try to have the correct amount available when you arrive. If you're arriving in a group please collect all your money together beforehand. This will help us on the gate and speed up your entry - thank you.
