Doing my bit for the local club that runs this annual event, I managed to get some time to actually snap a few bikes, here are some of those that I didn't put my finger over the lense (how did I manage that with a camera phone  :icon_scratch: ) or were blurry or someone stepped in front of me at the last second.

The Racers
I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint

To the owners credit, most of the bikes were ridden in and buffed up on the stands and nearly all of them are road registered and used on local club runs. There were quite a few rare specimins that you might not expect to see at a "regional" event and some that would be attractions at a museum.

I parked her up as they asked me to fill a spare slot, not even wiped down after the ride in.

Nobody was more  :bug_eye  than me.

Lovely. The Honda RC30 is another one of those 'lottery bikes' on my list. Just to sit in the living room and look at.

Funny story about RC's I've a mate who helps run the RC club you can normally see them at Stafford in October,I see a 45 forsale on a BMW website at half what it was worth in France,I phone my mate up and say plan A is I'll buy it,plan B we'll go halfs,plan C I need my head looking at you can have it if your desperate!!!.

He's already climbing down the phone as luck we have it we are good mates,good job not often you buy a 20 grand bike for half of that :icon_biggrin:

Nice photos by the way never ceases to amaze me what folk have tucked away in their garages and of course with the interest rate being so bad this stuff is making money every year as an investment.

Love the sidecar outfit with the Tartan.

He was trying to start it off car driven rollers without a lot of success when one of our older members strolled over and had a quiet word in his ear. Suddenly it busy into fire breathing lifew.  When the old fella came over to relieve me on the ticket gate, I asked him what he'd said. "I usually find they start a bit easier without the sink plugs in the bell mouths"  :mut :icon_redface:
