I'm gutted that I'm missing it and I'm looking forward to seeing the pics, at least the weather looks like it will be better than last year.
Having met you last week at our Essex meeting (and knowing how uncannily close you look like your avatar) I have two questions for you - do you think the septics will allow you in? - second question - will they allow you out? Rofl

CRUISE TO NATS ON SUNDAY FROM SW ESSEX/E HERTS

ESSEX REGION invite any members travelling up to the Nats from Kent, SW/SE Essex/East London to join-up with us on Sunday 28th June at the 'Welcome Inn' Birchanger Green Services, Bishops Stortford (CM23 5QZ) - off Junction 8 on the M11 at 8:45am for a prompt 9:15am departure to the Wood Green Centre.
The Lakeside Harley Davidson Chapter are planning to leave Thurrock Lakeside at 9:00am and will cruise in road formation on M25, joining the M11 north at J27. They will stop to re-fuel and group-up with our Corvettes for the final few miles at Cambridge Shell Services (Boxworth) on A14 (CB23 4WU) - this 5 or 6 miles after M11 joins A14 and just past Bar Hill. The plan will be to phone ahead from here and alert the 'gate' that we will 10-15 minutes away from arrival at PE29 2NH.
It is important for the safety of the Harley riders that ALL Corvettes grouping-up to go to Wood Green Centre leave the Cambridge services FIRST - bikes will follow in road formation.
Please respect their safety code and keep a safe distance. Looking forward to seeing you all come rain or shine
Kind Regards,

If not used for a while gaskets in carb can dry out, break up with bits of crap blocking float needle seats - flooding carb.
