Boxing Day at Exmouth, Devon

Todays blog will again be boring for a few of you I'm afraid. Every year on Boxing day the Exeter Classic motor cycle club hold a meet at a cafe on Exmouth seafront. Also there is a local charity family run on the same day.We in the Honda CX-GL MCC also use this as a meet for our local SW members.
This picture below shows all our local club members.
Please do click on any picture to enlarge it and examine bike details.
Here below is the first of our members bikes, its a Honda Silver Wing 650cc and is one of the rarer 80s models.
Below an 80s Cx500 cc V Twin, belonging to another member.
This belongs to another local member, its an CX500C or Custom model.
This is the Bike of Pete who is the son of the bike owner in the last picture. He also owns a Hack CX which is his pride and joy.
This is an absolutely brilliantly prepared BSA twin, complete with lovely old style Panniers.
This beautiful Vincent HRD was here last year I'm sure.
This AJS twin with a sidecar arrived and the rider got off and came round opened up the chair, out got his missus with two Yorkshire Terriers in her arms. they had come around 10 miles from Pinhoe, Exeter.

A nice old BSA 650 Twin with a Watsonian sidecar fitted.
This is one of Sue's favorite bikes the Honda 750cc Nighthawk.
This is a Francis Barnett two stroke, another marque that uses the Villiers engine.
This is aBSA Barracuda i think, quite a tidy one too.
This was a lovely example of one of the only two strokes bikes i ever fancied. This is the Suzuki 750 three cylinder water cooled two stroke. I think they look and sound great.

This nice old Greeves was one of many British marques that used the Villiers two Stroke engines.
This BMW Rider along with a Triumph rider braved very cold conditions over a long distance to be here today.
The owner of this Triumph had come over 120 miles along with one other rider, rather them than me in Temperatures of around 2 - 3 f.

Joke of the day.
Spanish singer Julio Iglesias was on television with British
TV host Anne Diamond when he used the Spanish word "manana"
(manyana). Diamond asked him to explain what it meant. He
said that the term means, "Maybe the job will be done tomor-
row, maybe the next day, maybe the day after that. Perhaps
next week, next month, next year who cares?"

The host turned to Irishman Shay Brennan who was also on the
show and asked him if there was an equivalent term in Irish.
"No. In Ireland we don't have a word to describe that degree
of urgency."

LOL! Love that joke!
Love the photos too - you and your camera make a great team, Bob!
I think my favourite bike in that lot would have to be the Royal Enfield - classic black and chrome...aahhh...
I'll show these to Ken next time he is in our computer room.
No snow there on Boxing Day? Were you just lucky, or has your snow season finished in your part of the U.K.? You had some snowy photos earlier... BTW, thanks for the email with the link to all those snow photos. They were utterly fantastic. We are simply melting over here...45 deg.C (113 deg.F) yesterday, and still 39 degC at 11 pm. How would you like to swap countries for 24 hours?

Good morning, thanks for your visit. I didn't think to link you to that blog post, but I went back and did so. My brother (age 65) just got himself a Suzuki, what model or anything I don't know, but love how quiet it is. Myself, I'll keep my feet on the ground.

Haven't been on one since I was around 18, and we got caught in a thunder storm, had to get home to get ready for work, I worked as a waitress that day from 3pm to 9pm. Got home, was sooo wet, thought I was going to have to cut my blue jeans off. That's back when I was young and thin and wore tight jeans to begin with, but when they got wet, well it was like a second skin. LOL

Also love the joke you've posted.
