I'll be there on 92inches now that we know the Swans play the next day, not at the same time. Looking forward to it.

Re: DHBC Lionel Cox Memorial Sprint Derby Omnium - 4pm April

Thanks Peter - good to learn a bt of triumph history. I'm currently riding around a tea plantation in India on a piece of history - a royal Enfield 350 when I am not pedalling. Too good.

Oops swans game clash... Now I have a bs decision to make... Ouch

Btw, where did you find that motor bike? I just noticed it has two parallel twin engines bolted together, never seen that before.
