There is an S1 and my XB in the show plus a firebolt there as well and that was at 8.30 so at that time that was 50% of what was there. Will be at the crown around 12.30 so maybe see you there. You might not recognise me as the dreads are gone now.

I had a quick wander around, as I was in Bristol for the afternoon. I didn't think it was as well attended as in previous years.

Is it me, or is all this 'biker bro' thing getting all a little bit tedious?
I mean, full-grown men in chromed German helmets or with scarves tied around their heads, pirate fashion.

It's really starting to remind me of these:

Not mine, no. I came on another bike, then went cruising with an all-day-bus-pass.

Yeah, we had one in there...

So, we saw...

A 97 S1, orange with a nuclear blue frame and Oberon pegs. I didnt think they came like that, thought the 97 model was black, red, silver or yellow. Anyway, the belt was TOO tight....

Image Image

And the black S1 and the 9SX (seperated by 2bhp)

Image Image Image

I think the black S1 was waiting till the show had finished before moving on to it's next appointment... :lol:

Image

More Buells next year? Lets hope...

I love old bikes in 'oily rag' condition, just like that Indian 8-)

I agree that the show has been busier in the past. Another good day out thou. The biker bro bit is on the rise notice the new patch clubs that are starting up. I blame that new TV series Sons of the Damned and the new GTA download about being in a bike gang:lol:
