  • Hogsback Chapter Boot Sale at Guildford Harley Davidson


    Description:

    Have you still got that old Harley related part sitting in your garage gathering dust?

    Well here’s the ideal opportunity to get some “dosh” back into your pocket.

    Hogsback Chapter will be manning a few tables specifically for members use and with 15% of members sales automatically donated to our nominated charities we should all have happy faces.  In the dealership carpark area - starts around 9:30am

    If you want to sell anything on the day then you must label each of your items with your name, telephone details and selling price. We will endeavor to get that price, or as near to it, for you but we want to have sold everything by lunchtime.

    Please do be realistic about prices though. 'Asking prices' not far off new prices, do not tend to sell.

    If you really want to haggle for a particular price then you really must be there at the table in person. We would welcome your assistance.

    You must deliver your items in a box or boxes to the dealership on the Friday March 17th from after lunch until closing and ask for Aaron Presley. NOT A LOAD OF LOOSE ITEMS PLEASE. That really would be a nightmare. So please box them up.

    Of course you can always bring down your items on the day.

    Any help on the day to man the tables will be very welcome, so please email roger.bonnici@hogsbackchapteruk.org to confirm your help.

    So get rummaging in that garage now and good luck!

  • European Rally Ride (Al Denton-Miller)


    Description:

    This trip is a 2 week adventure down to the European HOG rally in Budapest. The route down will take in some outstanding roads as we pass through France, Germany and then sweep along the Alps West to East through Austria. We will ride the world famous Gerloss Pass and the Grossglockner amongst others.

    Then we will spend 4 days in beautiful Budapest where you can attend the rally, relax and chill or go for a bit of Budapest's culture, great food and outstanding scenery.

    I will also organise an optional day trip or two from Budapest, probably to Lake Balaton one day and up into the mountains to the East on another

    On the way back, we will take a more northerly route through the Czech Republic, stopping for a night at the birthplace of real Budweiser beer (not the American pish), then across Germany homewards. we will get back to the UK on the Friday afternoon so you will have weekend free to clean your bike after a fantastic adventure!

    Expect around 2,500 miles over the two weeks, average of around 250 miles per day and longest day of 300 miles. Hotel cost is an average of £100 a night for a double room with breakfast included. Singles will be slightly less.

    Please contact al.denton-miller@hogsbackchapteruk.org for more details

  • European Rally Ride (Peter Ostinelli)


    Description:

    The ride is to start from France on Saturday 17th June, we have booked a hotel very close to the Eurotunnel so not to have an early start on the first day travelling from the UK to France via Eurotunnel.

    The emphasis on the ride is to be a ‘Holiday’ and hence the reasons we will be stopping of at major towns and cities of interest where once we have reached our location at a reasonable time, we can then do the tourist thing and venture out taking in the sights and the restaurants and bars alike.

    Don’t worry about the distances as we will be having frequent stops for both riders and pillions (both Stephen and I have our wife/partner with us). Hopefully en route will be stopping at places of interest to break up the day.   The roads we aim to take will be a mixture of motorway and non-motorway so to always keep everyone fresh and alert and more importantly safe.
