Another successful year at the Burton Brewers Droop scooter season opener in Burton upon trent. The custom show once again produced some stunning machines of all types, Lambretta , Vespa and something that optimus prime would be proud of and when ferdy's beast started up in the courtyard before leaving it sounded like a chinook helicopter was passing over head AWESOME !
Hope everyone who is attending the evening do tonight have a great time and don't forget to pick up the next edition of Classic Scooterist in the middle of March to see all my photos.
After 50 years living in Lincolnshire it's hard not to take the view of the Red Arrows display team practicing over head for granted. I still think it's amazing to watch as the team go through their paces around Scampton before the display season starts. So to be invited to the launch of the unveiling of the newly designed logo on the tail fin of the Reds hawk jets was one job close to my British pride.
As a young boy my dad worked on Lincolnshire airbases and so I was lucky to be able to see the Red Arrows display team in those early days flying the Gnat aircraft.
Well done to all the pilots and crew that are part of this world respected aerobatic display team.
Eventually arrived home last night after a few diversions on the motorways in the storms . After a successful Photoshoot with Dave, Ken and Al of the Worksop Mod appreciation society guys we went to the Sherwood Ranger for a little bite to eat with the rest of the
team. Thanks to the girls for putting on a fantastic choice to eat and for all the banter in the Pub, the highlight being Bri showing us his medical before I left ... Scary. Hopefully I can do the scooters proud in Classic Scooterist when they are published but some very nice models have been gathered by this close group of friends who love to be part of the Scooter Scene even if they are approaching their twilight years . And I don't mean they are all vampires :) . thanks again for the great hospitality guys.
