DGR 2018

last Sunday was the DGR, this takes place on the same day around the world, last year I rode the Thruxton so this year I took the Scrambler, we had around 450 bikes, it's worth going just to see the bikes.

I've added a few photos, have a look if you wish

I had not ridden the Scrambler for months, cleaned her up & put rego on the day before, enjoyed giving it a squirt...gee it sounds good

 Good one, I didn't go that far but I did have a tweed jacket & a classic Triumph LOL   I'll have you know when I'm not on the dirt bikes I'm a very Distinguished Gentleman & a grand dad.

Did you see that green Rickman ? is it a real Rickman & is that a Honda engine....the bike looks nice. There were heaps of Triumph's & a few Nortons & BSA's but I only took photos of unusual bikes, some of them would have been at home in Easy Rider.

Here is a link to the Rickman Metisse web site where you will see they now supply ther own engine as well as their lovelly specialist frame.

Below is a fine examplle of a recent, well finished and beautiful bike ........

            2018-10-07_081930.jpg

The Rickman brothers originally built their own frames and fitted a Triumph, BSA or other engine in themselves to use at scramble events.

Competitors were very curious of their capable bikes, liked them and asked for replicas.
The brothers then found that money was to be made from making frame kits for customers to fit their own engines.

A legend was born and turned into a business which is still ahead of the large manfacturers.

My old (1955) T100 has a similar, but smaller, top half fairing

She doesn't get used all that much now but I've had her since August 1966 and is now retired like me. biggrinbiggrin
