I agree don't knock one out for another, nothing wrong with more than one 924's and coffee meet.

Best get the battery on charge then.

Thanks Steve, I understand what you're saying, but I think that as long as the Ace Cafe is popular I'm all for carrying it on and having additional meet ups at other places.
Not 100% sure of the distant history of the Ace Cafe meet (and it's not really important) but I've understood it to be a geographically well placed South East region meet up with the bonus that its location makes it relatively easy for members to travel some distance from a number of directions (M4, M40, M1 etc) so it's become more of a Club 'Season Opener' than just a regional thing.
I'm happy to go with the flow... I'm not sure if the place you mentioned would be considered South East so I might leave it to someone a bit more Midlands to sort out.

Ace is easy for the Midlands too, nice Cotswold run for a part of it.

I'll be there, hopefully, the old girl will start. Have not used it since last November.

If you move the venue from Ace Café as an opener to the season, I will not be attending.

Not long now!

I'm so excited I've even polished my 924, and that very rarely happens:

Trouble is it's only on 2 wheels at the moment. All I need is for the wheel cylinders and calliper carriers to be replaced.
Parts have arrived, just need the mechanic to sort it for me before Saturday and I'm 100% there.
