The Very Wet Parade

 After two weeks holiday  in Beautiful Dorset the weather on this years Coventry Parade did come as a bit of a wake up call. Standing in my  Garage for 30 minutes all dressed up in my finest wet weather gear  looking at the rain get steadily heavier,  I thought to myself  ' maybe  the rain will slow down soon' Pah!  By the time I arrived at Coombe Abbey Country Park I and many other brave riders were very very wet.   However  after splashing around the country lanes  for a while most people decided on an  early    lunch stop,  and partake  of some of the delicious hot and drink  food on offer.  
However although the weather was very challenging this didn't stop people turning up on some very nice and interesting machines. These images I managed to take between showers while  keeping my Camera under my jacket to prevent water logging. Latter on the Sun did come out and the roads started to steam as we rode our machines  back to Coombe Abbey. Latter Many people could be seen hanging onto the Gazebo during prize giving as strong winds tried to make  it air born.  All in all a great day ( slightly damp ) was had by all who attended. Many thanks to the organising team.
