OK, I posted this on the other moped site but wanted to post it on here as well.

When we did the BBC filming with James May they had a really neat speed gun. I have now tracked one down from the US that is accurate to + or - 1mph upto 200mph. It is great fun shooting the traffic in my village with it and it dont half slow them down.

Anyway, its time for the bullsh1t to stop ladies and gentlemen. All you people that were moaning that you were not invited to the BBC shoot now have a chance to show us what we missed.

If some one wants to organise a venue where the bikes can be thrashed all day without any problems from plod I will sponsor a couple of trophies for the fastest mopeds of the day.

I will need to think up some rules but am thinking along the lines of standard and non standard bikes.

Is anyone interested or will is suddenly go all quiet now

I need someone to help sort out a venue and a weekend would definitely suit me as well.

We should get as many people along as we can and I will provide some decent trophys that are worth winning (not some crappy old thing).

Anyone want to help organise this ? Anyone got any ideas about a venue?

Considering how much mouth some people have got about how fast their bikes are I dont seem to have had many people interested in proving it do I

Come on on your "fast boys" where are you now?

Ha ha, Hi Hazel, I didnt mean you in particular the note was aimed at everyone.

We need to somehow agree a suitable venue. I know that wherever we do it then it will not be convenient for some people.

Does anyone have access to any suitable private land. Those of us at the BBC shoot will know that you aqctually do not need much room, just somewhere we can play without being hassled to move along.
