Just a few images to show some of the machines that caught my eye at this years Banbury run, and as always on this magic day a wonderful experience for those who love and crave the sights, sounds and smells of vintage motorcycles. Now I know the MV is not exactly vintage but I couldn't resist taking its photo, this is one of the those special machines that used to have me drooling over the pages of my old copies of 'Bike' magazine as a youth...and I think just as fab (70's word) in the full flesh as on the printed pages of that once influential magazine.
These few images show the 2017 Coventry to Brighton run as organised by the Midland section of the VMCC. Starting out side the Coventry motor museum and ending on Brighton sea front. And following the route down south to the seaside with occasional stops for Tea and Cake, resting aching joints and of course checking maps to check we were not lost. We returned back home on the Sunday morning with Simon and myself enjoying a very pleasant and scenic course...and as usual I just follow Simon, he is after all a professional lorry driver and knows all the best scenic highways and byways back to base. All in all a fantastic weekend that was enjoyed by all and we even had decent weather and a big sit down meal and awards evening on Saturday night...perfect!
Stopping for lunch along the way and checking maps and route sheet.
