Moving to the UK (Suffolk)

Hey guys. I am moving over the UK in June, getting stationed at RAF Mildenhall for a minimum of 3 years.

Was wondering if anyone lives near there? I am looking at housing in Ely/Little Port as a first choice and then Newmarket/Cambridge & Bury/Thetford as next choices.

Thanks for anyones help or opinions. Also, I am looking for garages that are attached or at least permanent structures as I have heard stories.

Re: Moving to the UK (Suffolk)

Congrats on the new assignment. Hopefully, someone will respond...cainyboy lives nowhere near Mildewhall.

Is your sponsor helping you at all?

Not sure if "Studlands Park" in Newmarket is still around but that's where I lived back in the early 90s. I lived in a prefab house in Bury St Edmunds and I would not do that again.

Did you re-accomplish your MSF course? I remember telling you something about that last year so you can ride with no hiccups.

Good luck during your transition...not sure if you're going accompanied/unaccompanied. Man, what I'd do to get back to Europe...it's so fullfilling to live in a different culture than the U.S.

I live in St Neots, only 30 mins from Rushden, perhaps we should hook up for a ride sometime?

I usually visit a BBQ bike meet on a Tuesday evening in Papworth, have you ever heard of this one ?

Re: Moving to the UK (Suffolk)

Hi, yes St Neots is a lovely place. I often buy my parts from the Suzuki shop in St Neots (unless I'm buying upgrades) always very friendly in there.

I will let you know when I'm next going up there on a Tuesday night. Usually, I'm up there every week, but I haven't been for a few weeks as I've had some difficulties to sort out, but I will let you know the next time.

Cheers,

Stan.
