Events, news and our fave Cornish classic enclave.
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.”
