Very lekker, except that the 100year rule will eliminate many/most Jap classics. :xxbah:

I can appreciate the 100yr rule for the ride, but will there be an opportunity for us young'ns to have a look at the collection of bikes?

Spectators are always welcome to come look and chat to the riders. I had a few mates arrive to just spectate and take pics etc. in fact spectators are encouraged  :thumleft:.
as for getting to look at bikes and stuffs...... I know there are some dogs who go to the meets etc (I stand to be corrected its something like the fist sunday of the month they meet near east rand? ??? not to sure though)

this year the bike I rode was on a loan basis, (im only 28 years young) as I just was keen to see what it was all about.
There is talk about trying to get a few bikes that can be loaned to riders such as myself are able to join in the fun but will wait and see closer to the time.

next year you must defiantly come and have a look see!
