March Moto Madness

This month I went to my first bike rally. Not something I would usually do, but a good friend had brought his bright yellow “beamer” (BMW) over for the weekend, and there was no escaping the inevitable: to the bike rally we must go! I was pretty excited actually. Image So this was the scene: a grumbly, grey day with persistent drizzle, yet the Waimate showgrounds were packed with tents, bikes, black-clad leather bike riders, bikes… and more bikes. There was free tea and coffee too! Image Image

The dazzling array of speed-machines, polished metal and paint jobs was really quite mind blowing.

As were the expressions of dedication to the cause… Image

There were trikes of various vintages on show. Image   Image

Not bad for a first time bike rally, really.
