My favourite meeting place Founders day.

This years theme for 2017 Founders day was American Motor Cycles, and these three machines deserved my attention because to my eye Indians always appear Beautiful, magical and charismatic  Motor Cycles. Every year I am always amazed at how many old friends or new acquaintances I meet  more often than not in centre of this universe that is the Founders Day Auto jumble. Again this year our section was very lucky to have been given space for our club stand, and after an early damp start we ended up with a very presentable display. And as the weather got warmer the stand became a drop in centre for Friends, helmets, jackets and of course recent Auto jumble finds.

My Favourite meeting place, Founders day.

 If there is one thing I thought stood out at this years Founders day it was the amount of well turned out proudly displayed tiddler machines, most types of mopeds, Honda Cubs, Bantams and other small capacity machines. Is this a new growing trend or just coincidence? Maybe these smaller machines can give just as much pleasure riding and tinkering  than  larger machines that are becoming more expensive and possibly to a senior generation easier to handle in and out of the workshop...watch this space!
