     To a point the blackbird came late 1996 but it is was always seen as 1997 bike hence 2022 as of the moment you would not be able to hold a event in 2021 if they don’t won’t to take part in this gathering/ celebration  of the blackbird that’s up to them.

     I checked with MCN and Wikipedia BB did came in 1996 it’s stated as 1997 bike when came to the UK I checked MCN say’s 1997 - 2005 it’s like the CB750 came in the US 1969 but came to the UK 1970 and was celebrated as 50 years in the UK it’s the same situation with the blackbird.

    There were a lot registered in 96!

    (Wiki states 96 as do most other sources except MCN)

    ps. this doesn't mean I wouldn't try and make it.

     Thank you . If this allowed to happen I look forward to meeting you and other B.R.I.D. members and have chat over a tea or two if you can make the gathering: celebration .

    Regards

    Well, I made it, I was #42.
    Do you know how many turned up.

    With a little tour around mine was a 970 mile round trip over 4 days.
    Few aches at the end but as I don't get to do many high mile rides nowadays and these bones aren'y getting any younger, it was only to be expected!
    Would be good to do the same run on the Tourer to compare.
