    For this years event the weather gods smiled, no rain and mild temps.
    Smaller attendance this year (just over 100 I heard) but still good fun. The Saturday ride was a punishing 220Km (especially for the OLD bikes) but on some great roads (I wish we had some like that around here) with great scenery. Only a couple of the older bikes ended up on the trailer with the 1927 AJS 'puffing' along the whole way. I followed him for a while along a stretch of highway on the way back to camp. He runs a bit of castor oil in the fuel and it smelt lovely.

    aaah I want that one ;)
    With a set of period Ceriani forks, clip-ons and Borrani alloy rims. But don't worry I will store the OEM parts.
