Vintange Motor Cycle Show.

A Rudge bike form the late 1940s; an English bike with its owner

An old Indian bike, an American brand that was one of the largest in the USA, with its owner.
Over this last weekend the top field at The Friars Add captionhas been filled stands and displays of motorcycles from the earliest dated 1919 right up to present day bikes.  I didn't realise they come in so many different sizes and shapes.  Walking around the field today on their Public Day I was surprised how chatty they were and how pleased everyone was to be at the Friars.  As one many said "I go to lots of shows but this is always the best and in such a great place".  It's good to hear when people enjoy being here.  A number of them were at the 10.15 Mass this morning so it's not just a showground for them.  They all looked forward to coming back next time.  Here are a few pictures of some of the bikes including me in a sidecare on the timed obstacle course

One of the puppies in training for a career as a dog who will accompany his carer as they move around the town enabling them to increase their mobility and Independence.  The Guide Dog Society is the Motor Cycle Club's chosen charity this year and money from this show will go towards the running costs of the Society
