It would have to be daytime only at a week-end for me.

Can't get a night pass

Given the almost zero interest, I'll not be bothering to try to do anymore with this event. Hope to catch up with most of you at some event or anther this year.

.....Perhaps the peeps are hibernating......maybe try again when the weather warms up and young mens fancy turns to thoughts of twisty roads in far off places ( And big fried breakfasts when you get there )?

Nope, don't give up. I, at least, need an incentive to get the bike back together again.

I'll be there.

As I've already said, my preference would be to arrive Saturday afternoon, drool over the hundreds of 888's that turn up (well, alright, tens of 888's then), go for some beer, banter and an overnight (for those that can get weekend passes), then hook up with a local rideout to show off our bikes to other Ducatisti.

That way, the folks that can only get out for a day can at least meet up with all the other 888's that turn up and those that are lucky enough to have extended passes can stay for a bit of a scoot with the locals.

Not so keen on the trackday idea because I can only afford to do a couple a year maximum and they'll be the DSC Cadwell and Oulton dates

I like the idea of meeting on the Sat,851/888 ride out, those that can't stay can then leave, leaving the remainder to drink,eat and be merry in the evening.Leaving Sunday to meet up with the locals for another ride out or to make their way home.

Not interested in the TD option-pushing my luck with Cadwell and Oulton as it is!!
