I saw Bon Jovi at MK Bowl in 1996, must have been later than that. I can't remember who supported them! Oddly, I can remember who supported Guns'n'Roses when I saw them there in 1993.

(I have a Synergie with a Peugeot badge (honest!) and although it's pretty sorted now, the ABS light stays on more often than not (being an early top-of-the-range SVDT it has ABS, whereas it wasn't generally fitted to other 806s of that era) and it'll need fixing before its MOT in January next year. It would help to know a bit more, like which sensor is acting up, if possible.


I'll have mine with me, and I'm sure there will be more than just me :-D

The convoy route is planned and submitted the committee...

For one section I advise carrying a side-arm and fitting armour to your cars. A big dog is also advised. The CX Ambulance will be at the tail of the convoy to tend to any wounded. Nigel Wild in his Gendarme Van will head up the convoy to clear a safe route through...

Just ensure you don't break down or even stop on this section.

Well, Jenny's survived baboons, and she went through Liverpool (twice) today without losing her wheels so I think she should be OK...

Excellent stuff Franklin :-D You know the route now :wink: Have a look at it on Google Maps and make sure I have my lefts and rights right. I'm terrible for getting my lefts and rights all mixed up...

If I do have my lefts and rights wrong some poor people might end up in Leighton Buzzard and that would not be good... I know, I once lived there...

That's a good omen Xac. You and Jenny are leading.... Beating a path as it were...

Good idea Jim, I'll have a look - it'll be a nice "virtual" convoy... I'm sure it'll all be left... :roll: :wink: :wink: :sprint:
