Last weekend was the Scottish Motorcycle Show. HB and myself went for a wee look around along with Bob and Faithir and Maw. We bumped into GHC and Brian too. I batterd off loads of photos, here's some of them.

But I think she prefered the Street Trifle

Harley 72
Of all the bikes at the show, this is the one I'd have. A fucking Harley 72. Good shit.

And see that Bamboo helmet? I bought the fucker. I'll do a post on it soon.


  1. Great fun. Thanks for posting up all the pictures.

    The 660 Super Tenere isn't even on the radar for coming to the USA. So many bikes aren't available over here it is crazy.

    HB must have enjoyed the purple on the Street Triple - it matched her jacket. Those sure are nice bikes.

    Can't wait to hear about your new bamboo helmet.

  2. Looks like you had a blast mate, bike shows over here are a non event, just dont have the population to justify it really. You northern hemispheres get all the good shit.
