    Well this was the first bike night this year that I've been able to get to. It was well attended too. Here's a few pics. It's a popular event, even ET drops in now and again.

    Nice.
    Is there a central planner, website, etc with all these bike days/nights listed in one place?
    I went with a few mates to Barton and would have gone to this if I'd have known it was on :confused:

    250 wet dreams ..... I used to borrow the ex- wifes back in the day to commute to work on. Funny thing was I achieved more dices/races and derring-do on this than I ever did on my at that moment 750 Kawasaki :joy:

    Handling was ok but the brakes and power were mediocre at best and at least taught you corner speed and " no shut off" techniques to add to your racing lines :eek:

    Here you go @Eldon

    Bike night 17th August
    Wed, 19:30
    East Kirkby Lincolnshire Aviation Centre
    East Kirkby, Spilsby
    This is a great one to attend if you get the chance. They do the Lancaster taxi run, and there's always bikes everywhere. It's a bargain at £5.00 to get in. Not to be missed if you can.

    24th Aug
    Sutton on Sea Bike Night 2022
    Wed, 18:00–21:00
    The Beach Bar, Trusthorpe Road, Sutton on Sea

    Here's a link to a fartbook page. I'm not on these things, so I don't know how good the information is.

    There's normally 2 on every year, maybe you had the first one down in your diary.

    Great photos, @Bikerman! I love that ET showed up and that photo of the kid looking at him like, "WTF?" is priceless. :joy::joy::joy: Seems you have lots of bike nights in your neck of the woods. There used to be lots of them in Tucson but it seems that is a thing of the past. :( I'm hoping that we get past this "things shut down due to Covid" and that the bike nights and rallies, well, rally.
