Following on from this thread http://www.pistonheads.co.uk/gassing/topic.asp?h=0... I thought it might be a laugh to try and sort out a BB night out.

Not necessarily bike based, more having a few beers and a curry/other grub and saying hello! I thought it might work well to fit it in around when StuB is racing his RSV at Snetterton, as it's just up the road from Norwich - at least then it can classed as a bike trip! It'd be good to support a fellow PHer with a few friendly faces too!

As with most of my plans, there isn't one really. Norwich is actually a really good night out, there's loads of cool old pubs (there used to be one for every day of the year) and it's a pretty chilled out place. There's loads of good eatery places too.

Tim has offered to house anyone's bikes in their secure BMW dealership if anyone wants to stay and can't find a hotel with secure parking. I'm sure lifts can be arranged to the shop! I'm happy to investigate hotels (I'll be kipping over somewhere in the City as I usually last train it) and I'm sure most budgets can be accomodated! Norwich is also direct on the train from Liverpool St for the Londoners.

No worries if there's nobody up for it, would just be good to meet some new (and old!) faces from PH in a chilled pub environment and I'm happy to act as a pub tour guide!

You still planning on topping up that posh-Essex tan (to show us carrot crunchers up) and coming along?

Right .... got the okay now.

Which part of Norwich are you staying in? We normally do the Premier by the river. Have stayed at the Maids Head before but that is really tired now

Good work!

I was going to suggest the Travel Inn by the river, to be honest. It's as good as any, 53 quid a night at the moment for a double or single and I know the bar's good in there! It's only a 10 minute walk from the City Centre and there's loads of watering holes en route! It's also directly opposite the railway station (so it's well signposted!).

I'll be along after work on the Saturday smile

As mentioned in the other thread, if any secure overnight bike parking is required i'll be able to tuck them away in our showroom or similar.

Oooh.... There were two Panigales there today - one in track spec, other in normal spec (and red). I'm sure one of em had long hair. Which one was Aky?
