Went to the smoke fest ride out this weekend . with my Ginge Caid Shaun from different strokes Top shaggy thats not my description of his performance i may add its his forum name LOL .
Got the tiger in his van and set of on the 2 hour drive to the pub car park we were all meeting at. We got there about 9.45 and the place was empty and we were all like GULP is it today is’nt it . 15mins later people started turning up and within the next 45 mins it was full of bikes. A few people took 3 or 4 bikes to put out and it made the line up look a lot better and gave us more bikes to look at. Some real nice bikes turned up and my pice of crap lc of course, but luckily there were a couple of other lovely lcs so i didn’t let the side down with my messy bike .
Hear are a few picks of the day and a couple of short vids i took of the line up and of the bikes getting ready to head out for a short ride . Only a little rain and no one got proper wet on ride so that was a bonus.
It was good to get out and have a chat with other 2 stroke lovers some of witch i did know for the fourm but most of witch i had never met before. Every one was friendly had a grate time.
Sorry for turning up on my diesel but the 500 LC is not on the road yet, as usual takes longer to complete and get ready than expected. Nice turn out and some nice bikes. Followed at back on ride out and the sound and smell was heaven sent. Cracking Bimota V-due, lovely Mito 350 YPVS and the blue 350LC with Higgs Speed bike made your ears bleed bloddy nice bike though and of course Norbo's tiger fur covered LC was different. Cracking KR1 and a pair of v-twin tzr's one with I think Lomas pipes. Good morning had and well done to the organizers. Rich.
as allways on this typr of ride rich its better to be on a strokes but all bikes are welcome just turn up on what ever you have and join in its about chatting with other 2 stroke lovers wether you ha stroker on the road at the time or not. Yopu had the best spot any way with the woft of the 2 stroke drifting back. Bloody short ride though could have neen 2 or 3 times as long for me i think we would have stuill missed the rain.
I think one should be sorted for this way meeting at chesterfield CMC for the summer some time a sunday and a ride to Matlock . we will have to see.
