If it smells of oil or Petrol ...its in the shed.

This Gentleman was doing what a lot of people do during the course of the afternoon, and that is to ride around the Parade ring showing of their pride and joy, and also letting us hear each machines unique exhaust note... oh and if we are lucky the aroma of Castrol R.
 I do have soft spot for early Douglas motor cycles and these pair were very nice. The far one looks loaded up ready to go on a expedition, in fact possibly to the trenches of the First World War. Because one of the themes of Founders day was 1st world war machines and certainly  Douglas machines played an important roll in the Battle fields of France.
