Best of British Bike Day – Saturday May 27th 2017 – Report

Once again the event was blessed with hot and dry weather and the garden of the Red Lion was packed with British motorcycles. Over 150 (Brit) bikes passed through the gate during the day with more than 50 being Triumphs (the featured marque). The oldest Triumph was a 1936 Tiger 90 owned by Neil K a club member and the most modern single seater Triumph being a Triumph Bobber owned by Joe S who joined the club on the day. A photo of the two bikes is shown in the gallery.

Another small group of Triumph riders was father and son Clive and Bill T who also joined the club on the day.  

Mark H brought his newly rebuilt Trident for “inspection”; this after 3 years of work. A well presented bike and a tribute to his skill as an engineer.

A group of 4 Velocettes joined the party quite early on with a very special V twin Venom outfit. This beautifully engineered special was the creation of it’s rider and was so well executed that it could have been a factory production machine. It has covered more than 80000 miles to date….

Another wonderful sight was a group of 4 rigid Matchless machines being ridden in together….

The photo gallery shows the wide variety of machines attending.

A massive thank you to Janice and Bill of the Red Lion for hosting the event so gracefully. Being able to park up well away from the road in the garden makes the event special.  

All in all the event was a big success with BMRCO members able to socialise together and with 3 new members joining on the day we as a club must be doing something right.
