I was there on the Empire Star,

Thursday evening was not really enjoyable up to the meeting point, all through the heavy traffic and stop after stop,

Friday was a very short run, only about 35 miles, heat was obnoxious at 35 degrees or more.

The West Kent Run on Saturday was 90 excellent mixed miles and very easy to navigate, even around a road closure!. A lot of effort had gone into the run!

Sunday's show I felt I'd had enough of the heat and bailed out early.
1961 A10SR, spent a fortune at SRM
1961 A7SS, finally the right green
2011 New addition 1937 Empire Star, twin port, high pipes. Turned out to be the most unreliable bike I have handled.
2017 finally found the liner/barrel were flexing and causing all the overheating/nipping up. Early B33 barrel fitted and it's reliable at last!
