We are confident of smashing all previous records and, with all the wide array of activities arranged over the 4 days of the long weekend, we will do our best to ensure that all bikers who attend will have a wonderful time".

New GoldWing club formed
November 16th 2008.....A 30-strong group of GoldWing riders in and around North Wales have today announced the formation of a new club for GoldWing enthusiasts, "GoldWings North Wales".
A spokesman for the club told us: "We have all become disenchanted with some of the GoldWing clubs currently available in the UK, and have decided to start our own local club where we can simply ride our bikes, display them for charitable purposes and enjoy each other's company at social gatherings.
Any Wingers, ex-Wingers or wannabe-Wingers in the North Wales or surrounding areas who are interested in joining the club or learning how to form their own local club are encouraged to make contact with us. Equally, we would be glad to hear from any existing GoldWing club which is interested in joining with us in forming a Federation of independent clubs."
