Mothers Day Ride - 10,000 Bikes

http://www.motorcyclenews.com/MCN/Ne...?&R=EPI-122133

A ride on Motherís Day to honour British soldiers in Afghanistan has gained so much support that organisers have had to stop more motorcyclists registering. Over 10,000 have already registered to join the March 14 ride in Wootton Bassett. A...

I do hope 10,000 turn up, I think 10,300 have registered, and the police are asking fo none rgistrants from turning up. I can't go as registration is closed and I only found out about it tonight!

Woop!

I've got a place on the ride. Pickup up my flag and sticker yesterday. Did a 150 mile trip to get them too, just hope the t-shirt arrives in time for the ride.

Anyone else going?

Re: Mothers Day Ride - 10,000 Bikes

Flag fitted, arrival time booked, Sticker stuck, and a larger flag made to go on the bike, and badge sewn on my jacket. Let the Thunder Roll! Hope this raises the money the charity needs, if 10,000 turn up, at £5.00 each just for the entry without the additional stuff, £50,000 in the bank...Woop!

I'm riding in rememberance of the 17 RAF guys that have been killed, and will have the following fitted to my screen for the ride.
Hope to catch up with Clive Reygers from the 09 Treffen at the ride.
