The weather was fab for Paul Callum’s ride to the Charity classic car show at Thruxton near Andover. Ably supported by 'Pompey Pete' at the rear Paul had a well planned  route through lovely lanes and countryside and other than a minor glitch when Roy’s gear change fell off and was hastily re-affixed with chewing gum and an impatient  boy racer everything went according to plan and the 20 or so bikes that turned out made a grand entrance to put on a static display alongside the Goldwing Trikes already on site with several more groups of Harley stragglers materialising throughout the day to add to an impressive show

There was an excellent selection of classic cars – predominantly Yanks but some superb English examples also present. Bumped into Colin who supplied the superb Ford Fairlane for Don and Maz’s wedding earlier this year and had a fascinating chat about his involvement with judging the annual convention each year in the States where his knowledge of the marque has made him and his young son minor celebrities. The ‘Fairlane’ was apparently only manufactured for 3 years around ‘57- ‘59 before being discontinued so there is a dedicated cult of enthusiasts who ensure they are preserved for posterity worldwide including about 15 in the UK

The main group headed back to Southampton after several hours and I was all set to return to Bournemouth via Salisbury with Dave Battson when he was apprehended by an organiser and asked to hang on 30 minutes as they wanted to present him with a trophy for ‘Best Bike’ on show – so it was Yah, Boo Sucks to the Goldwings including the lady who had attached over 2000 l.e.d.’s to the underside of her trike so it glowed in the dark – as you do

Great day out and thanks to all concerned

And so it was I took a leisurely ride back to Sandbanks to marvel at the antics of the Kite surfers in the powerful 30 mph wind blowing across the harbour from the South

.... including one poor schmuck  who ‘lost’ his rig which subsequently took off and landed smack in the middle of the harbour edge road – entertaining end to an entertaining day !
