Shame the other event hasn’t been promoted or I would have been up for it. As it is there are quite a few people committed to going to the NMM including Dunno who is always there, doesn’t use Facebook and just occasionally drops in here.
Real shame and don’t want to be in the situation of furthering a split but think the onus was on the “splitters” to make a change of location plain if that was what they wanted to do.
I had been low for a while with the flu or l would have!
I'm not sure viewing the other site as "Splitters" is a good idea, or very friendly to be honest.
They are Buell owners as well as Guzzi & Ducati owners, what's the problem?
I also find it quite arrogant to expect any other site to take this site into consideration when they're planning events simply because we have one on the same day (or got there first).
It's another forum, they can do what they like. Maybe we should be a lot more accommodating to other sites or even amalgamate to keep the ever rising costs down?
Just an idea.
Just as a matter of interest, I'm in conversation with Twin Motorcycles in Holland, (hence my absence from this site) those guys are really excellent, extremely helpful, informative, very progressive, highly supportive and willing to discuss any ideas I have despite the language problems.
I highly recommend them.
Happy New Year everyone.
