Italian ride in day - Sammy Miller's Museum

Post by G.P »

Sammy Miller's is open for business again on Saturday 4th and on Sunday 5th there is an Italian ride in day.
I've been to a couple before and they always attract some really interesting Italian bikes.

Anyone want to meet up? there's about 4 or 5 of us going down from Wiltshire. :thumbup: :thumbup:

You've got to do it once before you die otherwise you go down to the Harley department not up to the MVs.

Last time I went was when we lived in Tooting, which was about 25 years ago, I'll go again but not this weekend, as it'll be my first weekend of not working in ages (though that'll probably change and I'll be at work again on Sunday)

I'd like to go, what with me having an Italian momocycle and everything, but google says it's four hours each way... most of which is on the M1.

Its always a good day, Sammy usually gets a couple of old priceless bikes out of the museum and runs them round the enclosure.

Damn, if I'd known I'd have gone just to help them out. Obviously if they were relying purely on Italian bikes, very few, if any would have actually made it, so I'd have gone on the KTM just so they had at least one bike parked outside. Sorry Sammy. Hope it wasn't too embarrassing.
I will try harder next year.
