Now, you'd think that for all of it's off road posturing that it would be 4WD right? You'd be wrong! Front wheel drive only :o

A lot more comprehensive than I had imagined LOL. So much easier with Imgur to fix up linking errors and such. I was a bit cross eyed after all that.

But absolutely, next year is ON. Thanks for entrusting me with the reins of Big Red. He was very well behaved. Red Brigade FTW 8-)

Great pictures Dave........what a good mix of cars all in excellent condition.....& plenty of space between them. Most seem to have Printed cards in front?
Is it by invitation as it is one I would be interested in next year perhaps....easy access?
Hardly call them Unexceptional or is that irony :o
The Interpol II (I road them in their Military Police guise) was a lightweight bike but being Air cooled did not like slow moving traffic & the Fairing did not help, the better version made from excess parts was the Norton Classic. It later became the water cooled Norton Commander.

Linky thing here for info https://www.facebook.com/events/festiva ... 151007882/

The organisers are quite open minded but there were a number of spats amongst keyboard warriors regarding what really constitutes an unexceptional vehicle.

From the hundreds of vehicles that attend, a small number are selected to be judged. The judging panel did thank little old ladies everywhere which was quite a nice gesture :lol:

Easy access and an amazing venue too. You need to be there next year Pete.
