Decided to take a chance, and popped to the ace with my son on the zed 900.. Cloudy weather Cleared up half way down to there and the sun came out.. ( touch) got there, and parked next to a jaffa Cake.. Talked to big class, (Steven castle) and his lovely passenger with Julie, took so photos.. J d I d speak to a few others, (sorry for not mentioning you) I was talking to lots of people, to many names to remember.. So gave out a few cards, ( clock & switch restoration) had a brew and a burger. There was a lovely new super charged H2 there, just had to take some picks.. left at 2.45, to get home just in case.. Got home 3.45, then started raining.. Put her away.. Now p.. Sing down.. Touch again.. Well that's that for another year... :D

It was great to finally meet a few club members at the Ace Cafe today, some top notch bkes as well. I did get a bit damp on the way home as predicted. It was worth it though. I am off to start cleaning my bike Now!

You're not wrong!
I think I spoke to at least half-a-dozen members who I still don't know their forum names. :shock:

Great pictures guys.

Still not sure about the H2 styling. Why do Kawasaki put extended rear plate brackets on I don't understand? RS is the same.

Having been caught out last year and got absolutely soaked at the Ace VJMC Day (which had the same forecast as yesterday), I decided to give it a swerve but it seems the rain held off - great photos, although attendance seems down on last year's Kawasaki Day? - so maybe next year!
