Honda Day at The Ace Cafe 24.05.09
The Honda Day at the Ace Café took place on the 24th of May and Marion and I, along with Steve and Maureen Hill of West London and Graham Gull of North London represented the HOC.  As soon as the HOC gazebo had been erected and the stand completed, Marion and I joined Maureen in the café for a hearty breakfast.  The breakfasts at the Ace are to be recommended and are reasonable value for money.  Quite a bit of interest was shown in the HOC stand and four new members were signed up on the day.  Many more prospects took away information on the club and hopefully they will be seen at a branch meeting soon.  A ride to the Ace was organised by Bob and left The Swan bound for George White Motorcycles in Slough.  There, more riders joined the group for the final leg into London.  Reading branch was well represented at the Ace with 17 members present and was responsible for many of the HOC tee shirts that were to be seen at the event.  The day also featured the London Monkey Run and a total of 47 Monkey Bikes from all over the country attended.  There were also some very nice Hondas on display including many classics and one very special piece off Honda history, an NR750.  The General Manger of Honda (UK) Motorcycles, Steve Martindale was also present at the event and visited the HOC stand.  The Ace Café was also the destination of the Bedfordshire Rally Sunday ride out and we welcomed the participants and stored their helmets and clothing in the gazebo whilst they looked around.  The weather was superb and there were some very red body parts by the end of the day.
