Well, it was good weather so I strapped the elbow together and set off with Jed on his 1700 Trumpet – he led mainly on A roads so we were at Prescott Hill in good time. Well organised event. Walked in and met Darth Vader and a posse of Stormtroopers – hmmm…..
This guy was seriously quick.
The course is now easy to walk – a far cry from slipping around on mud and tree roots while watching my Dad race Morgans here 30 years ago!
George Shuttleworth at the second hairpin…
George guns it
That quick guy I mentioned earlier…
This fully luggaged tourer was rapid!
Full marks for attitude…
No suprise: the three supermotos were flying…
Good hairpin style…
Takes all sorts….
Next year Jed will hopefully be riding the hill on his modified Buell – should be worth seeing!
Well, after meeting Ol and missing other mates we set off: I led the return route, cleverly choosing only poor quality B-roads and farm tracks to shake up my elbow until I almost lost use of my throttle hand. Note to self: choose good roads for the next few months.
So we went to the first Bikernite the following Wednesday (at Hunters Inn, Buckbury, near Tewkesbury) – Jed’s satnav led the route home via B-roads & farm tracks…. Oh well….April 22, 2015 at 7:06 am #68557katanaParticipant
Bugger, can’t believe I missed this! It’s only down the road from me.
I’ve been a couple of times and its always a good event.

Excellent pics and lovely weather it seems. That ‘Flying Millyard’ looks scary though!April 23, 2015 at 1:46 pm #68559katanaParticipant
The Flying Millyard is so called because the engine uses 2 cylinders from a Pratt and Whitney Radial aircraft engine.
I’ve met Allen a couple of times (he uses an engineering firm that I also use). He is the man responsible for the V12 Kawasaki and the V10 Viper engined bike amongst others.April 23, 2015 at 11:15 pm #68560RadarModerator
Some great pictures there, it does look like a superb event. I must go next year.
I looked up Katana’s reviews from a couple of years back but his pictures have gone from the posts which is a shame. i remember they good pictures. Any chance you could add them again?
The Flying Mallard is impressive, he is one talented engineer that lad!
Cheers for posting!
