Motor'98 - UtrechtBACK TO INDEX
26-feb-98Motor'98 is a yearly motorcycle exhibition in Utrecht. You won't find any motorcyle company like on the MotorRAI. This is an motorcycle exhibition where you will find most motorcycles dealers with bikes, clothing and everything you need for motorcycling. A must for every biker.
26-feb-98The YDCN has his stand on the first floor, not heightech but with a little fanatasy, some posters, logo's, photo's, flags and nice people you can do a lot. Enough interesting people as you can see.
26-feb-98Ofcourse we use some marketing tricks, like beautiful girls and sweet ;-) Left in the red YDCN sweater my wife Lida, right with the black YDCN sweater Ellen. No, you won't see me ever on pictures...I'm taken them so...
28-feb-98We had a red Diversion XJ900S with sidecar on the stand which you can see on the left. In front of the table Johan Driesen, behind the table Ellen Baart and Paul Veerkamp. On the back Dennis van der Zon and Ilse van Ogtrop.
28-feb-98Here a little better view of the Divvy with sidecar. As you can see we had a view visitors in the stand. There were moments we had more 'customers' but I have no picture of that. You would only see people's back which isn't that interested. Afterall, the Motor'98 exhibition brought us 24 new members in four days.

Season openingsride in TwenteBACK TO INDEX
13-apr-982nd Easter day. 58 members had signed of for this yearly event but it was freezing cold, rain, wet snow and hail. Despite the weather, 30 bikes/33 members arrived in Borne where it was a little better than in the rest of Holland. Ofcourse it was worth coming as the ride was beautiful.

18-apr-98In this context we did an inspection who uses Michelin tires. We found one but couldn't find the groove marks on this one. To be clear, this tire must absolutely be replaced. It's unsafe to ride with such tire conditions.
