Sometimes you meet people that truly inspire you, and I had the pleasure monday of meeting and very special person . Somebody who obviously would go out of her way to help and support friends whenever she is needed, I'm so glad I could be of some help to support her in her challanges ahead.
Good luck Jac I'm sure your friends will be by your side as they were kicking them leaves all the way.
What an eventful weekend up at Bridlington scooter rally, from meeting up at Reds for him to Ride up so we could collect the Samba . Realising there was something wrong with his scoot trying to get it fixed but eventually making our way to Waters Reach where we was staying . Friday night after filling up on Fish and chips it was out with the repair kit to see if we could get the WRC Lammie fixed but after finding the kickstart ramp had decided to part company with the casing it was to no avail so we had a few jars and finished off in the Southcliffe with plenty of Scots all dressed for the occasion. It was a little difficult to get up early to make for the Custom show 8-9.30 to sign in , some didn't make it though heee heee. Loads of nice Scooters on display and congratulations on the lovely vespa that won the Richard Addison Photography sponsored trophy , a real stunner. Plenty of friends won trophies on the day Rob with his great looking SX200 , Brad with the TT, pete and the pair of special Lichtenstein painted artwork , Iggy and the classy looking race rep Vespa and not forgetting Frank with the vintage Model C . Well done to all , it was a long but fun day for us also . So pleased my mate Gaz got a runner up trophy for the SX- Samba , he of little faith , don't want to tell you so mate but I will "well done". Red's WRC race replica also won a runners up trophy for best graphics , well deserved for all who helped him get it there after the dissapointment of the Lincoln Rally saga.
After getting the scooters out of the Spa we went for a bit to eat at Poppies early in the evening then made an effort to see Andy and The Jam'D at Music Nights on Prince Street , another great set boys the pub was well and truly rocking. Even the guy with the pork pie hat and his tamborine was well accepted by the crowd. If that wasn't enough excitement seeing 3,000 plus in the Spa later to watch BIG FATTY himself Buster Bloodvessel on stage was a real highlight of my weekend . The bunch of skins at the front of the stage without shirts just boots , jeans and braces made me laugh , good show for all .
Not sure what could be done to better another great Rally but I'm sure everyone preparing for next seasons do's in 2013 will have some idea's .
PHEW ! at last it's finished , well apart from a chrome mudguard flash .
Just returned from fitting and fettling the rear runner boards and front horn casting on the Lambretta SX150-TS1225. Looks tremendous , cant wait now until sat morning getting it setup at the Bridlington custom show.
A successful evening spent in the company of other FSB members at Glanford Park , listening to influential speakers on how to promote or fund our own business's in these tough economic times.
