Anyone going? What day is favourite?
(Last year Sunday was by far the best attended day.)

Depends on the weather, but I hope to go on Sunday.

Dad and I hope to go Sunday (weather permitting). Will have a shopping list for the car, and a question list for you guys!! Look forward to seeing so many Sportsters all at once!

Will be going but weather dependant as to which day. But minus the car because its still in bits. Have had to divert my attention to the house due to extensive modernisation internally.
Should learn to get my priorities right.

It depends on the weather as my trip to Detling was cold, wet and miserable.
I agree that from the previous years I've attended Stoneliegh, Sunday seems to be the best day.
Previous years, we've stayed overnight in a B&B but it'll be a one day visit this year, if at all.

Of course, that's not a problem now my Sportster goes at warp speed
and currently has no brakes at all

It's not looking to promising...........


UK Outlook for Thursday 3 May 2012 to Saturday 12 May 2012:
Fine and dry across many northern parts of the UK through Thursday with some sunshine, away from the cloudier east coast. Further south, conditions will be generally cloudy, with showers or longer spells of rain interspersed with some drier and brighter spells. For the remainder of the period, becoming largely unsettled across the whole of the UK. Showers may be heavy and thundery, possibly wintry over higher ground in the north. Becoming windier for many parts, especially across northern areas. Temperatures may be rather warm across some southern areas at first, but will tend to fall throughout the period across all areas, to become largely below average with a risk of frost by night in sheltered inland parts.

I'd look later on in the week, if I where you Pete. Any forecasts much past 2-3 days are notoriously unreliable.

I won't be there I'm afraid. Combination of a gerotted left ankle and poor weather. Hope you have a good day!

Cheers
