Is a nice spot, be one of the first stands after the main dealers hall. Going to be busy.

Unfortunately I'm about 99.9% sure I will not be able to make the show this year. Have a lot on with work as working 7days a week Sad The silver lining is with all the extra hours and w/e double rate , I will have plenty of Bimota tokens come June Shocked Very Happy

Amore Moto are also due to be there...stand Number 430 opposite the Ducati Stand...so should be a few Bimotas down there for sure

Final shout out for the Manchester Bike Show and "our" return once again to this Show........

Usual Suspects of Laminator popping down to prop up the YB front of Bimota manufacturing.......Gavin driving all the way up from London with his DB9 and one other "special" motorbike to be revealed at the show for the first time.....Hopefully his journey up on Saturday Morning 2nd April will be unhindered.......

Geekay making his usual return to help man the stand...much appreciated as always...and to take his pick of my steeds in riding them down this Friday 1st April...I'm guessing he'll pick Vdue and DB2 as his choice of rides down...

PaulDB2 also volunteering his services to help man the stand for the 2 days and help with set up and breakdown...much appreciated

And Possibly PhilFingers coming down with a YB11 and maybe an SB6 time permitting.

Goodies gratefully received from Paolo of BimotaClassicParts this Morning fresh from Italy....all items will be on display on the stand....together with free wine "sampling" and Free Amaretti sweet and crunchy biscuits also to dip in the rich Italian Red wine........All Bimota owners and guests visiting will be more than welcome to help themselves to the aperitifs on offer....due care and attention to Drivers/Disclaimer.....

Hi Steve, look like you have got a good showing and Bimota is will be represented very well. I was hoping to get mine to the show but the wheels fiasco has put me on the back foot. I will try and contact you tomorrow and if I can be of help I can come Sunday with the van and help put things away.

Good luck with the show
