20 July 2008


Was an absolute brilliant day, great atmosphere, lots of classic bikes, rockers, greasy cafe, and the top brit band in the land to keep all us rockers happy. Hope they do another one soon !

And thanks to the Rapiers for playing all of our favourite rockin numbers.

Cool. Sounds like your classic "Best of British" day out was had by all.

Me,Val and friends, Terry and Jane Munday took a flying 4-wheeled visit to this excellent 2 wheeled venue and enjoyed sunshine, cafe grub, record and memorabilia stalls, 50's police cars, loads of great bikes and a knockout Rapiers set. Throw in numbers by Vince Eager and Billie Davies and an English Sunday afternoon was down in the annals of 'the great and the good'

What a great day out.Loved it.Missis loved it.Bike was flying.Rapiers were great Keep on rockin. Lennie and Carole
