Isle Of Man TT Races 2013

Isle-Of-Man-TT-2013Yes, excellent news, it is that time of year where as a biker you must put life on hold for a week and spend every evening after work catching up on the madness that is the TT Races, our favourite time of year! I have great memories of each year sitting in the warm, in shorts even and possibly with a sneaky beverage watching the likes of John McGuiness and the Dunlops charging around the Isle of Man like a scalded cat, whilst quietly wishing we could do the same.

With pratice starting in just 3 days time, we all hope and pray for a dry and sunny week and that we will feel the thrills that we have felt in the past and that maybe, just maybe Guy Martin will get that illusive Win. As always it will be a busy week with the Race and Practice Schedule so crammed  but we all just love.

Those that are just a bit more hardcore

Bikers take over hastings 2011

Ever wondered what it would be like if bikers took over a town? Well I think a good example of what it might look like was made this year at the Hastings May Day Run 2011. Whenever an estimated 10,000 riders descend on one place you get to see an exceptional selection of bikes, and for those bikers that went to the Wootoon Basset run this year (20,00 bikes) maybe you felt there needed to be more bikes, but wither way this is an awesome sight. It was a great dry sunny day without being too hot and so everyone came out to play and if you were in a car in hastings, you woz sorrounded all day!

We have therefore selected a few of our favourite videos that

Hastings filmfest 2011 is a new biker events that is being launched this May. This new events is part of Hastings target of the “Round Pound” which is the new terminology for making the most of the money spent by bikers when they go to an event as we are apparently now a more educated breed. This will potentially be the 2nd main motorcycle event in Hastings with the Hasting May Day Run of course being the largest with an estimated 20,000 bikers being expected this year.

Wirral Egg Run 2011 – Estimated 15000 riders

wirral east egg run 2011 bunny photoThis easter saw the Wirral Egg Run 2011 happen on the 17th April, this was the 31st Egg Run. It has been estimated that 15,000 bikers took part in this mighty event and that is ran very smoothly with the organisers doing a great job, and of course working with the local council and the police to move this amount of bikers through the same roads and of course closing the roads for the safety of all concerned.

The first Wirral Egg Run that happened in April 1981 had only 20 riders which were the members of the Empress Motorcycle club that each took an Easter Egg for a child that had to stay in hospital for Easter. Reading through the history the most eggs collected were approx 20,000 (year 2000)
