'SISTER' LIPPY & MEATLOAF (TERRY NASH)

It was back breaking editing so many images so they can be viewed properly and to make it easy for you to find comparable shots from different galleries we've now created a 'cross reference' chart - CLICK HERE TO PRINT OFF THE CHART  if you find a pic you're in that's in the list (or close) make a note of the point of reference you need to look at in the other two shooting positions then just scroll several frames either way for  variations

PRE-RIDE RIDERS

Whilst Max and I were sat waiting for the outriders who normally close off the  Spur Road into Bournemouth to traffic a number of bikes roared past so figuring they must be from the rally site we fired off a few test shots to get us in the mood. If you were one of those you might wanna check out this gallery set

THE  FIRST RIDERS APPEAR

We were somewhat bollocksed when the expected marshalls didn't materialise and cars continued to come hurtling by us as the ride roared into view throwing our plan to cruise in the fast lane slightly slower than the ride so you all came past us on the inside lane at a speed conducive with sharp shots. Panic stations then as we force our way into the fast lane traffic !

SHOTS FROM LAY BY

Plan 'B' -  we accelerate to the first lay by and Max quickly hops off and begins firing over 300 shots in rapid succession as wave after wave of bikes accelerate past. As a result we missed the first half dozen or so bikes that had already passed the lay by but we're grateful after weeks of  pre-planning to be getting any shots at all ...

We took 335 Pix from the Lay By so each of these galleries represent approx. 25% of the total ride (excluding first half dozen or so that we missed). They're numbered in the order shot so do the maths and it should give you some idea where to look for you and yours ! .... N.B. If you're a regular NEW FOREST HOG WESTERN AREA  natter night regular (the pub meet  Lippy and I attend) at the Plough in Sway  then save yourself some leg work and  go straight to dedicated gallery below

THE RIDE PAST

The back markers come and go and thinking that was all we were going to get (as we were now distanced from the back of the ride by 2 solid lanes of cars) we pull away to head for home and download what we've got. Then lo and behold a quarter of a mile down the road a police car with a flashy light suddenly stops the traffic in the fast lane along with the entire ride in the slow lane. We part the two lanes of cars down the white line and Plan 'A' is unexpectedly back on except that now we're working from the back forward instead of the front backwards. A second bite of the cherry resulting in another 500 shots -yay and way to go !

PIER APPROACH

Unfortunately we don't make it to the front before we run out of dual carriageway so  when the ride turns right into Westover Road at the Royal Bath and determined to capture the riders at the front (who we've now missed TWICE) we zap straight on to the Pier Approach and gear up to catch everyone rumbling into the the main display area. So the upshot was that instead shooting everyone from one angle we actually shot most riders (other than the first fifty or so) from up to three different angles so if you have time its well worth working through all the galleries and see if you can name that face. If you see someone you know please e-mail the web link and image ref. number  to them  - Ta muchly !

SUNDAY NIGHT

Shot by 'Sister Lippy' before deciding she was too busy partying herself to be arsed and climbing on stage instead to supply a few b.v's (backing vocals) for her old mate and drinking buddy Meatloaf and then snogging the vicar behind the vestry !

MORE MEATLOAF ONSTAGE (TERRY NASH)

The final Sandy Balls Rally wouldn't be complete without Terry Nash's superb tribute to Meatloaf which has long since established itself as a favourite at New Forest HOG events. I delegated my son Max to take a 'few pix' as I was tied up processing ride pic orders. He took me at my word and shot over  200 so here's a selection of the best . There was loads of audience participation so if you were up there on stage belting out 'Bat out of Hell' with our Tezza check out the gallery print off order form below if you'd like a copy

SOMETHING 4 THE BOYZ

The Sandy Balls Rally is equally famous for the 'Something for the Boyz' and 'Something for the Girlz' interludes on the final night. Fine heterosexual boy that he is our Max likewise took about 100 pix of the female stripper that took his fancy and absolutely none of the male strippers so 'fraid the girlz crapped out this year - sorry. However if you were one of the lucky guys on the receiving end of this young lady's 'whipped cream' and you'd  like a hi res print from the gallery to pin on yer PC at work print off order form below
