Event Report


What a difference a year makes – after a promising start in 2004 the second South of England Rally at Bisley came roaring back with a vengeance in 2005 – mercifully devoid of the wasps that plagued lat years launch, and amusingly immortalised in this years patch and pin.

With 1100 pre-booked and an additional 500 through the gates on the day the sea of tents on what was a relatively open field last year was testament to the time effort and energy the organisers at the 1066 , Invicta, Oxford , Surrey & Thames Valley chapters had invested in staging this years event ensuring it’s now certain to become a positive must attend rally for years to come.

With an increased security presence , a generous rally pack, bar prices pegged at around £2.00 per pint, 50+ trade stands, umpteen catering options, 6 live bands,  a regional heat for the best Harley in the Uk competition and a hotly contested chapter challenge it would be almost impossible to fault any aspect of the rally

The images in these various galleries go some way towards capturing the flavour of the event including the Bungee Run won by the mighty Dave Sharp of Nene Valley, the hog sticking contest complete with some decidedly unconventional 'riding' positions, the fiercely contested Tug O’ War (won by Invicta) , some hilarious Sumo wrestling, Tossing and catching water balloons (NOT) and a speed trial testing the ability to cover a 100 yard course in the SLOWEST time possible - a real test of throttle control and balance with extra points if you were in fancy dress !! – all of which  hopefully convey the fantastic good natured party atmosphere you could feel throughout the entire site.

A soaring runaway success - top marks guys
