Thankyou 6music

compact and bijou

More hillclimb

This was taken at a hillclimb at Hartland Quay on the north devon coast.  I've got some more photos somewhere which I'll have to dig out, but basically its a helluva twisty track from the quay up to the clifftop, probably one of the only motorsport venues where you can go beachcombing, have an ice cream, and watch the racing.

Proper Racer

This IMHO is a proper classic racer, not prestine, not period correct, but used, abused and raced, I particularly like the anti drip oil containment system, or sponge.

Saw this XR up at Thruxton during the summer, a very interesting machine, although you will notice there are no shots of the front end, as it was just too damn ugly!!

oh dear.....

Got this in the post recently, 10th anniversary Hotrod Hayride flier, looks very tempting, and this year they've got the dirt oval again!!!  Do I take my 2001 racerep/ ricer burner, (completely inappropriate, ha ha!!, (if its back on the road, ahem)), or my sensible diesel estate, very sensible.  Decisions, decisions.

BSH extreme, more from indoors

 Thanks to my cameras crapness, I managed to get a great photo, (IMHO), of the crowd streaming by, with the bike stock still.
 I believe the above bike used to belong to a bloke called Dodge, who is a wheelie loon, I remember seeing this bike in Streetfighters, a long time ago, even today, it looks great, no badass skulls or such nonsense, just everything paired down, BOSH!!

Plumbing nightmare!!

 Brilliant cockpit!!
 Don't know if that fairing is an original, but if it is, I imagine the phrase "hens teeth" comes to mind.

 Another Dodge wheelie bike.

 A winning combination.
 "Interesting" tank, and heameroid friendly seat.

 What more do you need.
 One little Indian.

BSH Extreme, Indoors, (my camera can't cope!!)

I have to apologise for the quality of the photos, I just can't find the proper setting for indoor photos, when the light is a bit shonky.  The first bikes on display were a raft of streetfighters, many of which have featured in the now defunct mag Streetfighters, (R.I.P.), so it was great to see these insane bikes in the flesh.

One turbo, that's for girls, real men need 2 turbos, to make life decidedly sketchy at the slightest hint of moisture on the road, like I said INSANE!!!
