Despite dire weather forecasts, we had a good turn-out for The Old Motorcycle Gathering on 24 July 2021 at the BCSA. Those who came were rewarded with a good collection of bikes to view and dry weather apart from about half an hour of drizzle in mid-afternoon, which soon dried off again. Most managed to ride to and from the event on dry roads. We had a bar open serving drinks and hot food and both indoor and outdoor seating.
As well as our normal categories of Best in Show, Best Triumph, Best British and Best Foreign, this year we had a special new Trophy in memory of the late Steve Butcher, which was awarded to the best bike in the show owned by a Branch member. The winning bikes are shown below. Congratulations to all the winners.
It was exactly two years since our last real show in July 2019. In 2020, we had an online virtual show, so it was great to be back seeing real bikes up close, meeting fellow bike enthusiasts and drinking beer together. See below for more pictures from a great afternoon.
