It was once again time for my mid summer camp, when I invite a few of my friends to join me for the weekend down in Wiltshire, at the great Woodbridge Inn, at Pewsey, this is such a nice friendly venue, and very well run, with good food and beers. And even though the campground was packed, they found and reserved a spot for us when asked.

Great people, great pub, go try it.

Tell them Kevin sent you.

I started the weekend on my BMW R80ST, as my Shovelhead was once again in the garage, but late in the day Friday I got the call that the Harley was done, so Saturday morning I ran back to Reading and swapped bikes.

The campground really was packed with Archeologists doing a dig at a site somewhere between Stonehenge and Avebury…

I have never ridden anything foot clutch hand change before, let alone a British 1140cc sidevalve… fantastic :clap I also don’t appear to have taken a picture at the rally! so this is from earlier in the year. in Belgium

 

Thanks Bob.

Today was the annual Talmag trial, held just outside Aldershot, here in the UK. This is always a well attended trial, with people coming from as far away as Germany. The weather for once played in our favour, and the torrential overnight rain cleared away the snow and ice, leaving a damp ground, but a blue sky sunny day.

I was out getting the project Norton gearbox built today, so I thought I would grab a couple of pictures from the shed while I was there….
