One for your diary - the BMWAF, in conjunction with other BMW clubs in the U.K. will be holding an event to celebrate all things vintage and classic in the BMW bike world next year. This NOT a club event but will be open to anyone interested in the older BMWs.

This is the first of its kind in the U.K. and will be a one-off, so it's not to be missed. The venue is Riseholme College near Lincoln and the event will run over the weekend of July 13 - 15. Accommodation is available on site.

All the usual rally type activities, such as ride outs, raffles, and competitions will be there but it's going to be much more than a rally.  Throughout the day and evenings there will be a wide range of activities.  We've got a range of the top U.K. gurus to give demonstrations, talks and  advice, There will also be talks and presentations from a wide range of other experts too. Hans Muth and Elspeth Beard are just two of the top BMW people we've got lined up. For those who don't like rides-out, technical stuff or presentations from the top experts in their field, then there are always the bikes themselves: we're planning on having the largest display of vintage BMW's ever, with models running from 1923 through to the end of the line 1998 airheads.
