You’ll read else­where in this is­sue that this month ef­fec­tively marks the stun­ning de­but of the six-cylin­der Honda CBX1000. To this end, the CBX Rid­ers Club (UK) will be cel­e­brat­ing 40 years of the CBX at the Na­tional Mo­tor­cy­cle Mu­seum Birm­ing­ham from 10am on Satur­day, June 16. The CBX Rid­ers Club (UK) was founded in 1992 by Pete and Rusty Broad and has mem­bers through­out the UK, Ire­land, Europe, Scan­di­navia, Aus­tralia, USA, Canada and Ja­pan. Dave Kane from the club ex­plains: “To mark the 40th an­niver­sary of our beloved CBX, the club will be or­gan­is­ing a grand gath­er­ing of CBXS at the Na­tional Mo­tor­cy­cle Mu­seum in Birm­ing­ham on June 16. Our tar­get is to get 100 CBXS on site to beat the 80 we had at the 20th an­niver­sary of the CBX Rid­ers Club event, which was at this venue. So, we would love even non-mem­ber CBX own­ers to come and en­joy the oc­ca­sion “To com­mem­o­rate the event, the club will be hir­ing a room and pro­vid­ing a free cup of tea or cof­fee, a sou­venir mug and a badge to each of the first 100 CBX own­ers turn­ing up with their CBX. Even if you do not have a CBX, come along and just en­joy the event. The Na­tional Mo­tor­cy­cle Mu­seum will be giv­ing dis­counted ad­mis­sion on the day to those at­tend­ing the event, so you can take the op­por­tu­nity to look round this fine col­lec­tion of two wheeled his­tory. “We or­gan­ise ral­lies and lo­cal meet­ings in the UK and Ire­land. We at­tend ral­lies or­gan­ised by clubs of other coun­tries. In 2018 it is our turn to host the Euro Rally and we will be hav­ing an event just out­side of Inverness in Scot­land from Au­gust 17-19.”
