Big thank you to Chris and Jane, good to meet Kev and ATT and many others. Thanks Willy for the cuppa tea. Just wish I could have stayed longer.
Take care you guys, hope to meet up again soon.
Brian, it was good to meet up again after all this time. Your Ulysses looks mint and you must be very pleased to find one in such good condition.
We knew it wasn’t going to be the biggest Em’s Day we’ve ever held but it many ways it was one of the most memorable. When we left home on Friday morning we thought Saturday was going to be a total washout and we’d be lucky to have just a handful of motorcycles turn up. Instead it went far better than we could have hoped.
The weather for the event was spot on, we enjoyed warm sunshine until around 2.00pm when it started to cloud over with menacing clouds in the distance but it actually stayed dry over East Kirkby. We think Emma was looking after us because we got back to the Red Lion, which is just 2 miles from the Aviation Centre, half an hour before the heavens opened.
We can’t thank everyone enough for attending yesterday, we really do appreciate it. We hope you didn’t encounter bad weather on the way home but we’re sure some of you did. A couple of the Ducati Monster Owners Club guys ran into some downpours on their way back to Norfolk.
Out of a total of 52 motorcycles there were 13 Buells and 7 Vincents plus an assortment of Italian, Japanese and other British makes. This year we had some cracking specials and they attracted a lot of attention.
The event raised £70 for Emma’s Charity and we’ll send a cheque off to Papworth Hospital during the coming week.
