Hi, is anyone aware of likely gatherings to celebrate 50 years in 2021 or thereabouts?

That means i need to buy another bike to be able to partake  :(. Him indoors has a beautiful CB500/4 but it's his not mine and he doesn't like to share :'( :'( I had hoped that a 500 i really wanted would be in my little collection by now but alas, not forthcoming as yet. Still time i suppose.
Im a Nurse, trust me, this won't hurt.....much !!!

What about the VMCC festival of 1000 bikes, Mallory Park in July... i believe the Kawasaki triple guys are having a similar gathering there this year.... would be cool for the Honda guys to do the same

Think that venue would be a top idea. Dare I say that as a humble 400/4 owner!
One day I'll have the time to restore it, not just talk and dream....
