I was there by just before 10 am and was surprised by the lack of people. It did get busier, though even by the time we left at around 1pm it wasn't exactly heaving.......maybe because it was a Bank Holiday?
Anyway, there was some great bikes there even if form over function seems to be coming more apparent. The attention to detail can be very impressive. Certainly becoming less Shed built with a lot of the builders even producing catalogues to go with their bikes. I still enjoy it even if deep down I think to some extent it's going against it's original ethos which I think is a shame! I guess it's just going the way it's market dictates and that is obviously by people with plenty of money.
I'll still be going next year though !
|One of my favourites this year, though I wasn't very keen on the Guzzi that they previously|
produced. At least they've put the Sport's tank to good use!
|A humble CX no longer|
|A very well produced Guzzi by Death Machines of London except I still don't get|
that tubed steel tail ?
|Fancy a C90 with a KTM 450cc engine|
|SRC (Side Rock Cycles) of Bournemouth usually produce BMW's,but got a|
commission for this Guzzi
|Don't fancy your chances of not getting pulled over with that|
half hidden number plate.
Rather foolishly I forgot the battery for my little point and shoot and so pics are mostly courtesy of the Bike Shed Facebook page which has a load more than I will be posting. Obviously a lot more professional photography,but I'd still rather be publishing my own snaps.
