Gillingham in Gear 2019

Gillingham in Dorset (with a hard g as in great as opposed to the Gillingham in Kent which is soft as in giraffe...) has a meadow in the centre of the town and once a year in June there is a petrol heads' gathering there something akin to a village fete.

Two and four wheelers are equally represented and the atmosphere is convivial and informal. Just ride / drive in, park up and stay as long as you like. There are a few club stands, the Royal Enfield Owners Club, Dorset VMCC, Gold Star Owners Club and Norton Owners Club were all out in force. Below a few pictures from the day.

A swarm of Gold Stars.

Rare bird, BSA Regal Gold Star SR500.

Moto eye candy, Ducati Elite.

Ducati alongside Honda CB road racer.

Has the Ducati Elite got the curviest, sexiest
petrol tank ever?

'Barn find' Suzuki T500.

Triumph 3/1 side valve from 1935.

REOC out in force.

Offside view of the Triumph 3/1.

Iconic is an over-used word, but the styling of
the Triumph Thunderbird definitely is so.

If I could have taken home one vehicle....
Beautiful late thirties Lagonda 4 and a half

Cute late thirties Morris 8.

Guzzi engined Triking.

Lovely Bedford van.

A rare sight. Reliant Ant three-wheeled truck.
