A visit to the Pat Davey Dot museum


This years VMCC Relay Rally found me visiting the Burton section check point housed at the Pat Davey Dot museum. This was situated North of Burton upon Trent and as usual was staffed by friendly people  who for a donation could offer the weary traveller Snack and hot coffee. This was the first time I had ventured north on the Relay Rally, exploring new roads and visiting different  sections is one of the reasons I enjoy this event so much.  My next stop was to my home check point of the Warwickshire section, all together a days riding of just over a 100 miles, long may this event continue!



Many thanks for the hospitality.

The Ladybird book of the Motor Cycle.

There was a time and an age when if you wanted to know any thing about the world  all you had to do was look in a Ladybird book, these books covered most subject's and being sad I do  have a few of them in my possession .
However one book in question eluded me until last Saturday while shopping in Fargo village in Coventry. Ladybird books were always well illustrated and this one is no exception with a 1960's Scrambler ( BSA ) and period looking scooter complete with suitable attired young lady rider on the front cover...well worth the asking price of just a few pounds.

 Now this is all I needed a few weeks ago when my Norton's electrics started playing up!
