That is a beautiful JAP, what speedway bikes still should look and sound like!

You look to be taller than the average rider but still really stylish. Also, is that a 22" rear wheel?

Apologies for misleading people, I was alluding to resizing and posting photos ("if anyone can do it") definitely not riding speedway, something I would never joke about.

  However I have had a go and your right, I am tall, here's a Mick Kilby pic.of me at the Mike Broadbank training track '67.

In light of recent developments in the COVID-19 crisis, and following the address to the nation by the Prime Minister on the evening of 23rd March, the Auto-Cycle Union has today extended its suspension of all organising permits for motorcycle events until at least 31st May but will be constantly reviewed.

Will there be a point in time when it becomes unviable for Australian riders (who have returned/remained at home) to come over to the UK? If so, when is that likely to happen?

I wonder what the advice in Germany is, as BSI are still selling tickets for the German SGP on 30th May :-o

Tickets are also still being sold for the GP at Cardiff but I wonder what chance that has of going ahead as planning is underway to use the  Principality Stadium as a 2,000 bed hospital for Coronovirus patients.

...and they'll be then expecting the Government to air lift them out of Wales.

I wished to see a play in York (April) at the local theatre but resisted the temptation in buying tickets because it was becoming obvious how things were developing regarding public gatherings and/or attractions back in February/early March...certainly to me anyway....despite reassurance from the ticketing office that monies would be re-funded in the event of a cancellation.

Butlins at Easter - refund in progress

The Who concert already rearranged for 2021!!

Just waiting on Guns N Roses  and Areosmith concert announcements for May and July to be sorted

We had gone for a Plan A events 'blow out' 2020 on these rather than a 2 weeks all inclusive somewhere in August

I think we all hope Plan B of the holiday in August will be an option  - if not we will all be tearing our hair out (well for me what little I have left anyway :))

Things will be so bad soon that you will count them and make an announcement on here ;)

Others will be so bored that they will ask for you to post a picture so they can count too and check you are correct :lol:

First time ever I bought my GP tickets well in advance but expect at some point I'll be offered a refund and booked Travelodge on flexi rate minutes after last year's GP finished and got a really good price, was really surprised when I looked that rooms were actually on sale so far in advance.  Oh well people's lives must come first hopefully things will go back to some sort of normality in the not too distant future.  Stay safe everyone.

I'm coming rapidly to the conclusion there will be no racing this year. 

I have tickets for Wroclaw GP but I don't see it taking place in August.
