He won't come whatever.

He's semi-retired and has enough work to keep his workshop going for years...

This was the man who turned down a works Honda ride in order to focus on building his own racers - having just beaten them!

We were very fortunate to meet him and spend four hours chatting with him... and we have been invited to buy him dinner one night soon at his local pub.....
We got to see so many interesting things, I can't remeber them all, but this might have been the highlight??? The Barcelona 24 hour winning bike....

I think it was the highlight - that's the bike that beat the works teams and resulted in the offer from Honda.
