the last few years the pickers market was quite small...suppose to be bigger this year. i will try and attend but i doubt there will be alot of drifter parts...more 60's and 70's bikes, i think.

isle of man...what a place to live in may and june!

 8)  talk to him and have him invite you over and he can pay for it all he lives in Stewart Manor on one of the curves. He can not ride a motorcycle in a straight line for longer then 1000 yards or he falls over.......

  No it is true imagine a person from the Isle of Man, with all those curves and such trying to ride through SK or even just along the 400 from Kingsville to Barrie......not a curve in the road anyplace.......

Hey boy do not insult me by mentioning that ridiculous game if you are really bored one day look it up on you tube you may even see the famous uncle malcolm. Now the reason ratman has not been invited to the TT is I know he will try and seduce the beautiful Andrea but we will keep that our secret TJ. For some very strange reason she really likes him.

Awww, C'mon, at least give him a challenge!  All he has to do is mention something about leaning once in a while while riding and feeling the bike do this weird thing called "cornering".

Sorry guys I have no idea what a straight road is so until I find out I will not be able to take part in this humour. Ratman walking football is played by unfit pensioners like you not athletes like me and my new mate tj.

 8) I am a very fit pensioner, and once you have reached the age of myself and Uncle Malcolm then you can flap your lips....but till then a bit of respect for your elders.....lol....
You might want to talk to Andrea, about the straight roads, after she returns to you after her holidays here and enjoying to country she might let you come for a visit.......

   ok back on track here......... tj bought my tickets for the show today, we will be leaving very early Sat morning for the drive down. Go straight to the show, it is in the International Center like the Jan show, but only using 2 Halls so it is not as big as the Jan show. They are only using Halls 1 and 2, so should be easy walking. I'll be there with my cell if you decide to make that long drive from London........this is the reason we are going:
 This year’s show will feature a new Motorcycle Pickers Market area for vendors with used and hard-to-find parts for American, British, European and Japanese motorcycles, as well as used motorcycles, memorabilia and collectibles.   Peter Derry, Show Manager of the SPRINGSHOW, states that, “We became aware of a sudden need for a venue for these vendors to sell their stockpiles of used parts.  We know that our audience is looking for this ‘impossible to find’ stuff and have created a dedicated area where they can pick through the vast selection to their heart’s content.”   Some of these vendors have been with the Show since the beginning but now, as the only indoor Show with a Pickers area, the number of vendors has quadrupled.

For anyone restoring an older motorcycle, customizing or upgrading a current cruiser, or a rider just looking to put away those rare spares ‘just in case’, the SPRINGSHOW will be the go-to Show on April 9th & 10th 2016.


plus one of the lads going with us has a huge man crsh on Tig....lol.....
lots of associations and clubs going to be on hand also....

 TJ: plan right now is to depart on about 0500 and arrive in TO at the International Center on or about 0900 when the doors open. We will hang out and scope out the halls till close to closing time, unless it is a bust. I'll have my cell with me and on this time.....going to return home on Sunday morning, but departure is all weather contingent. With the storm the last 2 days we are buried.
