Saturday was a display in York Street, so thanks to the members who turned up with their bikes there.
Thanks also to Les and his mate who went Back-Up, coming in from Denmark to do the job on Sunday. Neil had his own trailer following him thanks to Robin, and Margaret followed Don on the CZ.

It was a most enjoyable day - see you next year.
