We could do the Festival of 1000 bikes like we did for H2.
It’s back with the VMCC now so properly organised.

Sounds like a great idea - who is co-coordinating - Simon / Chris?
Could it be themed at one or all of the rallies or at Stafford for next year?

We only have to wait another four years for the H2s birthday (again) not 10.

TBH, the festival of 1000 bikes was a big let down after Spa the weekend before, But even without Spa, it was disappointing from a bike perspective, I don't think I'll be revisiting that one.

I really enjoyed the Festival of 1000 Bikes. Admittedly the weather wasn’t brilliant, but I enjoyed it so much I went again the year after. Weather was fantastic the whole weekend was organised perfectly and one of the best biking events I have attended.

I have one or two plans for Stafford next year. Exactly what they will be depends on discussions with the organisers.

When the time comes if you have a H1 then I will be asking for volunteers to show your bike.

Like the sound of an overseas event. I would take the H1d for a good run.

I remember the French held one for the 40 th anniversary for the H1. My self, gary clarke and a few others club members met jp in Paris for the advent, it was a really good turn out with the H1's doing a fast parade lap's of a local race track. Maybe they may hold one for the 50th

Surely this has to be one of the largest triples clubs in the world - between us we should be able to organise something amazing in this country Thumbs Up
