British motorcycle charitable trust
« on: June 27, 2018, 04:53:48 PM »
This was a a new one on me, and normally I stay well clear of anything "charity, but seems a good deal for £20 a year, gives free access to a lot of bike museums.
Near me I have Sammy Miller, Haynes, Beaulieu museum, Brooklands and the Tank Museum all qualify under this scheme if I get round to most of them this summer I'll be quids in.
Anyone else in it?

No, but it's been going for a few years now. It didn't look kosher when it started but clearly it is.

Funny, that's what we say down here, why are all the bike events in the Midlands or the North?

As far as I am aware there is nothing north of Birmingham worth going to. If you know any different let me know.

There are more classic car and tractor shows that you can shake an oily rag at up here in my bit of Yorkshire but next to bugger all bike related. Going south needs two days supplies cos of the queues on the M1 and anyway I get nose bleeds if I leave Yorkshire.

Oh aye, typical Yorkshire, too tight to let anything go, I knew a bloke from near Leeds who wouldn't let a fart go till he got back home ;D ;) ;)

Plenty steam rallies down here as well, mostly with some kind of bike element albeit static, but that means you get in free with  a bike entered.

Does that make me tight? :o

My late father in law used to say "he's not tight, he's welded".
Getting grumpy.

I should think not a good fart will keep the kids warm for an hour or so in winter.


We differ from the Scottish by having better dress sense but but we’re not as generous.

Love it Grunt. ;D ;D

I used to do the larger jumbles in the Midlands decades back and the best bit was the Yorkshire guy who would look me out to exchange  north/south abuse; brilliant craik, it would have the pair of us in stitches, not at the  exchange of abuse, but at the weird sods who did not get the joke.

PC had hardly even been invented.

 :D

PS I have a wife of yorkshire stock :'(

The only event we have in the real North (Lancashire ) is Garstang autojumble once a month in summer but they all start packing up at mid day so its hardly worth going but it dose go dark a lot earlier up here.

Not far from Garstang http://leightonhallmotorcyclehillclimb.co.uk/ normally a lot of older bikes entered and in the car park.
Plenty of VMCC runs in and around Cumbria
Classic bike nights at Wray 1st Thursday every month from April to September.
Or there are often events at https://www.lakelandmotormuseum.co.uk/ but its just worth a visit with or without an event.
