Boxing day Bike meet on Exmouth Sea Front.

Todays blog is going to be about the CX-GL motorcycle club meeting on Exmouth, Devon's sea front. The meet is actually organised by an Exeter classic & Vintage bike club and they do it every year. This year there must have been 45 to 50 bikes there, we hi-jacked it a bit because 6 were our clubs bikes. The day was really bright and sunny although the morning (10.00am) temperatures didn't rise above around 9c and there was a cool East wind. A few of the bikes and riders had come 35+ miles so were chilled to the bone. On the journey we climbed up out of Teignmouth over Haldon Moor the Temperature dropped to 3c.
The first picture is of the first of our club members arriving.These are Richard and twin brother Dave from Plymouth.
This a group picture of our members. They are L to R, Richard and twin brother Dave,Me, front Sue, behind Sue is Monty, alongside Monty is Simon, in front Skippy, then Pete, Owen,Peter H, and Ollie.
A very nice 70s or early 80s Honda CB 900 F.
This 500cc Benelli is one of only 2 that I have ever seen, this one was in nearly mint condition.
This Honda 700cc Night Hawk is a bike Sue has had her eye on for a few years now, Just the Coppers/pennies that have stopped us. This one is an 80s model.
A very lovely Vintage Vincent HRD there were two of these parked together.
Sue's other dream machine, this is a Honda CM 400 T of 1980s.
Joke of the Day.
A teenage girl is staying at Granma's house, She comes downstairs for her date with this see-through blouse on and no bra.
Her grandmother just threw a fit, telling her not to dare go out like that!
The teenager tells her, "Loosen up Grams. These are modern times.
You gotta let your rose buds show!" and out she goes.
The next day the teenager comes down stairs, and the grandmother is sitting in her chair knitting with no top on. The teenager wants to die.
She explains to her grandmother that she has friends coming over and that it is just not appropriate.........
The grandmother says, "Loosen up, Sweetie. If you can show off your rose buds, then I can surely display my hanging baskets."

Happy Gardening.

Ken lent over from his computer next to me as soon as I said you'd posted some vintage bike photos on your blog! Good shots, great bikes. I share Sue's taste in bikes, by the way. My last bike was a Virago...sigh. Hated parting with that, but just couldn't afford to run a car and a bike.
