Erik Buell @ Buell & Italian Festival, 29-05-17.

Post by Chris Jessop » Mon Dec 05, 2016 5:38 pm

Big news for next year’s Buell and Italian Motorcycle event on Spring Bank Holiday Monday 29th May - Erik Buell will attend as our guest of honour! Erik very rarely visits the UK or mainland Europe so this is a real coup for us.

See these topics on the UK Buell Enthusiasts Group website for additional information:
Event general discussion topic: http://www.ukbeg.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=21891
Event information resource including downloads etc: http://www.ukbeg.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=21892

Taken from the press release we sent out in October:

Event title: UKBEG Emma Radford Memorial Buell/EBR & Italian Motorcycle Festival (Em’s Day)

Event location:
Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre (LAHC)
East Kirkby
Spilsby
Lincolnshire
PE23 4DE

Event timings: 10.00am to 5.00pm.

Admission charge for motorcycle riders and pillion passengers is £10.00 per adult.

Event location website: http://www.lincsaviation.co.uk

Event details: Organised by Chris & Jane Jessop (founders of the UK Buell Enthusiasts Group in April 1998) this will be the 14th event held at this location dedicated to the memory of Emma Jane Radford, Buell rider and UKBEG member, who passed away 22nd April 2004, aged 26.

The event raises funds for the Papworth Hospital Cystic Fibrosis Unit that looked after Emma. We’ve risen over £74,000 to date. Emma’s Charity website: https://www.justgiving.com/Emma-Radford-ukbeg

Erik Buell will be our guest of honour and Buell/EBR enthusiasts from the UK and mainland Europe will attend the event.

The event features classic WW2 aircraft flying displays and LAHC Avro Lancaster taxi-run displays.

In addition to Buell/EBR American motorcycles there will be Italian motorcycles and our special guests the Vincent Owners Club.

Definately going so looking at booking the camp site with Julie as there have already been a lot of people booked. If any of you guys want to go I would advise getting booked up sooner rather than later.

Just back a couple of hours ago from another fantastic weekend at East Kirby. It was good to meet some new faces and catch up with some old ones. Hope you got home ok raptornutt? It was really good to meet Erik Buell and I even got a pic with him. Missed all you guys and Julie was asking for everyone. She was getting an operation on her tennis elbow today so it would be great if some of you could send her a get well message.
I drunk to much as usual and paid the price on Monday morning but then what's new?
A massive thanks to Chris and Jane for organising it all.
Cant wait until next year. :nod:
