hey jonh.....a 4th gen VFR, old 250 Duc single, BSA, Triumph...a helmet hanging on the seat or bar...you know I find operational, RIDDEN vintage bikes interesting and inspiring, always been a fan of old stuff doing what they were meant to do....not tucked away, covered and hidden. And I suspect you feel the same.

Looks like a fun, interesting meet. Thanks for sharing.

So nice indeed! In proper VFR colours too. Although, FOG's was stunner in green.

John - That said, I love the design of old BSA. Something about it makes me want to ride one with a leather hat and googles.

Ducatiman - Agreed! It is great to see the older machines being ridden. That is what they are for. Too many sitting around in private garages and collections.

Due to work and travelling distance it's not a meet I normally attend, 2 years since I last got there.
It's a great meet and very well organised, with tea room's/Bar on site, as well as a barbeque...Hog Roast was on that night.
On night's like that the place fill's up pretty quick, and it's great to see all the "old" bike's being ridden in rather than just "unloaded" and put on show.

If you've got the bike, you've got to look the part,
