It was our local MAG show today (motorcycle action group) so as the sun was making a rare appearance, I opened the lockup, and pulled out the 75 Harley FLH for a run through the back roads of town and then out into the local countryside, heading for the rugby club where the show was to be held, the old 1200 V-twin thumping away.

This was to be my first trip out on the shovel, and what a strange fun bike it is, loads of torque but not the quickest bike on the road, which is a relief, as the brakes weren’t built for speed, but then I guess neither was I.

Sunday was the annual bike show at Popham Airfield in Hampshire, just off the A303, and once again this year the weather played ball, giving us a warm sunny day, with just an odd shower to keep us awake!

I had decided to take my Guzzi Ambo out for the day, and arranged to meet up with a couple of Harley riding friends for coffee at the halfway point. where Mark turned up on his very nice Panhead, one of a few old Harleys that he owns, and more importantly, rides.

After coffee’s and breakfast we all headed for the show, and when we got there it was heaving, loads of people both displaying old bikes, and just there to look around. it really is a well organised, well run event, lots of food and drink wagons, a large autojumble area, and a massive classic bike arena. It is a firm part of my yearly calender of old bike events.
