Poole Quay Bike Night May 2012

A beautiful summer evening. Hundreds of bikes gathered by the seaside.

An informal meet on Poole Quay every Tuesday evening in summer that has become something of a local institution. Motorcycles of all shapes and sizes, plenty of weekend pose machines, a few daily ride scruffs hanging around, the odd scooter and a smattering of classic machiney. All that and fish and chips too..

Here's a few pics from earlier this week.

Line up of classics. A familiar face in the foreground.

Immaculate Suzuki RV 125 sand bike.

Super shiny metal flake BSA A10 next to an NSU Quickly. 

Suzuki X7 chillin' by the sea early on.

A wonderful junkyard finish Triumph bobber.

More detail from that Triumph. Note the reflector on the brake rod.

I liked the Triumph, can you tell! Brilliantly minimalist kick start
side stand and possibly the most discreet number plate ever.

Variety is what it is all about. A Moto Rumi Tipo Sport
 nestles inbetween an RD250 and a Vincent Series D Rapide

Another well executed Triumph custom. This time a flat tracker.
Metal flake Bell helmet is a nice period touch.
