The end of Summer Bash

September 16th 2006

as ever click on pictures to enlarge

 With autumn really making its presence known, through country lanes decorated with hues of brown and gold I headed to the Pilgrim Pub and the American Motorcycle Owners Club End of Summer bash.

 For the first year in many it was dry, infact the best description of the weather could be could be muggy.

 Relieved of a fiver for entry, the smell of a hog roast caught me nostrils, though that would not be ready until the evening. But other comestibles were available for the peckish until then.

 The Car park was fast filling up with good quality bikes, some I have seen around, including the gorgeous triumph, but some nice new bikes to ogle.

Strolling around with a beer/coffee seemed the thing to do, so I followed suite.

 As ever the bikes in the main parking area were as interesting as those in the show, this one just cried out for me to take it home, though I do not think Milly would be too pleased.

 With David Bowie and Focus playing over the sound system, it really was a pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

I never got to hear the Bands set for the evening, or the winners of the custom show, as I started a blinding headache, so headed home.

A great little show
