Nowt more than a selection of snaps from this year's excellent Bournemouth Distinguished Gentleman's Ride. The sun shone, the bikes many and diverse, a sweet route through the best of Bournemouth and a good time had by all. Many thanks to the organisers.
|ex WD BSA B40. In these days of shiny|
restorations or 'original paint' authenticity
a bike like this is a breath of fresh air. It drew
a crowd and more interest than any catalogue
|Beemer airhead customs are still rolling out of|
sheds the world over. This one though broke the
usual brat style mould nicely. There's a definite
metal flake revival around the corner...
|Sweet Ducati single.|
|Pre-ride briefing on Poole Quay.|
|Brilliant custom Vespa 'Scootercar'.|
|Distinguished indeed. Cammy Norton.|
|Meriden Triumph on Bournemouth sea front.|
|Line up of machinery by the beach.|
|MV tribute bike. Tax in post note is a nice piece of nostalgia|
|Triumph desert sled replica.|
|Desirable BSA Rocket III.|
|Triton and dapperness at Highcliffe Castle.|
|New Norton, old Greeves and red leather.|
|Triumph chop at the Castle.|
|Rode behind this righteous Shovelhead chop|
for a while and it sounded good.
|Scootercar again. Really loved this device.|
|Drivers / riders seat on the Scootercar.|
|Another unusual Vespa custom. This one kind of Gotham|
City / American Gothic inspired.
|A lot of work went into this and the scootercar.|
Nice YouTube clip by the Mother Ukers - the band
played at the finish at Sammy Millers. It's worth checking out
their YouTube channel.
