That's good - you'll have someone to chat about Pink Things and Kittens with while the men are looking at the Motorbikes.
You're feeling brave!

I'm being sent to Cumbria, plus I got no money. Besides I've already met GBC, she sat on my bantam racer at Darley Dale rally :D

Nowt wrong with Coventry !
Well, there is, quite a lot actually, but it's no worse than anywhere else in this Sceptic Isle and a damned sight better than a lot of places.

It's a phrase Gus, you might have heard it in use as you got older :lol:

Yes, and I even know it's origins !
Basically it refers to troops being billeted in Coventry Priory where the monks had sworn a vow of silence.
(or summat like that)

Back in the 70s a bunch of local punk bands put together an album called Sent From Coventry.
My mate Danny was lead singer with a band called 'The Squad' which contributed the song 'The Flasher (Take A Look At This - It's A Man's Willy)'

LOTS to see !

Anyway, who'd be interested in putting a stand together for the April show and making it a Forum Gathering ?
It could be a lot of fun.

Just a few piccies today - I'd lost my battery charger and the battery was running out. Found the charger now so will try to do better tomorrow:

If we can sort a forum stand, it shouldn't cost anything and there would be free weekend tickets. We'll hopefully get an introduction to the show organizers tomorrow to find out more. I think you mostly have to stand around drinking tea and sharing biscuits.
