Event report 10th April.
Many thanks to everyone who attended the Easter Sunday 9th April Buell/EBR/Guzzi meet at Sywell Aerodrome. It was a fitting way to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the UK Buell Enthusiasts Group. Over 70 motorcycles were present, including
1 EBR1190, 19 Buells and 36 Moto Guzzis.
We were very lucky with the weather, especially considering the wet conditions prior to and after the event. To have 2 days of guaranteed dry weather over the weekend meant that people could plan their journeys with a high degree of certainty that they wouldn’t get a soaking.
Sywell Aerodrome proved to be an excellent choice of venue and we would like to thank all their staff for making everyone feel so welcome. Together with a couple of other Buell riders we stayed Saturday night at the Aviator Hotel on site. This is a beautiful building with Art Deco design and furnishings. It is one of the best places we’ve stayed at for a UK Buell Enthusiasts Group event.
The Aviator Bar and Pilots Mess Café were kept very busy for most of the day serving riders and members of the public. Sywell is a popular place for a day out being so close to Northampton and Kettering.
There was a good selection of machines on display, ranging from classic Buells and Guzzis to the new V100 Mandello. Quite a few people had travelled many miles for the event. A special mention must go to Fiona Seward who had travelled up from Somerset on Saturday on her 500cc Buell Blast together with her husband Mike on his BMW. A 360-mile round trip. Fiona obtained her full licence last year and this was her first long ride on the Blast.
Other Italian machines of note at the event included a Ducati Supersport 950, a beautiful Morini 500 and a stunning new 208BHP Ducati Streetfighter V4 SP ridden by fellow Buell owner, Alan Hawkes.
We would like to thank Nick Pashley, Kev Meanwell, and Alan Keill for their help with publicity for the event.
