Hi all, a brilliant weekend in almost perfect weather very ably organised by Mike and Anne Kilvert and hosted by the Clwyd veteran and vintage machinery society at the showground in Oswestry. Thanks go to Anne for the catering ( brilliant curry) and Brad with his two mates for organising and leading the rideout which took us though some stunning scenery, quite testing hills for some of the bikes but very enjoyable. Regards Basil.rsz_dscf0113.jpgrsz_dscf0114.jpg

Please dont ask me how many Bantams I did'nt count but I'm sure someone must have.

I had a great time and the company was fun.

Including the excellent club run, I covered 330 miles on the Bantam this weekend, most of it on the A5.

Our member from Norwich however did a fair bit more than me !

 

It was my first National Rally and I would thoroughly recommend it to members.

 

Here's a few pics:

As said above: 'twas a first rate weekend! I counted 26 Bantams lined up on the stand on the Saturday, of which about 14 took part in the most excellent road run through some breath-taking scenery. A couple of the photos above show the group at the Sun Trevor pub which seemed to cling onto the side of a mountain, and where we devoured a couple of cubic yards of chips!

There was also a goodly number of 'day visitors' to the event who were Club and/or Forum members so the number of participants was considerably higher.

My thanks also to Mike & Anne for putting together a great event, and Brad & Co for organising and leading the road run.
