Ayr Classic Bike show Sat 15/06

Recommended Posts

Been and gone.

The day started like all others, pissing down with rain, then I got told as the wife is working, I had to run my daughter to the airport (look out Magaa) and then take my youngest to work, so I never got a start until around 1130hrs.

Kicks the auld bike over and heads off into the gloom, thinking 50 fkn miles of this, I must be stupid, but after about 10 miles the rain cleared away, the roads dried up and I had a great run down. The Trident was going so smooth I had to keep reminding myself to  slow down as it's a 44yr old bike. About 5 miles from my destination, I saw a guy pulled over at the side of the road, so pulled in to see if there was owt I could do. He was on a V Max (full power) and it had just glided to a stop. Plenty fuel and power to the ignition and lights but no sparx. Stood with him for about 10 mins whilst he got through to RAC then headed off.

I arrived at Ayr just over an hour after leaving my house and some bikes were leaving already, including catching a glimpse of a Vincent Black Shadow. In I went and had a look around then introduced myself to some blokes from the tr3oc. I took a few pics but apologies as they are weighted in the Triumph dept

Very cool, Jimmy. Glad you managed to get out!

At times on Saturday the rainfall was epic in Scotland. I got caught going through Glasgow in a crazy downpour, it came down that quickly it had nowhere to go.

you even got a bit O sun there.

Sometimes you just got to go and see how it turns out. 

All makes sense when the rain stops
