Gloucestershire motorbike rides!

We went for a ride on Saturday, one of those that we just jump on a bike and head towards some, previously determined, point but being more focused on a trip itself rather than its destination.


Actually we went to Swindon to pop over into the Outdoors store and motorcycle outlet, for we need some equipment for our July's bike-trip to Northern Spain (Basque country hopefully). Unsuccessful shopping it was, unlike the bike ride itself ;)

So this time we somehow came across, in the middle of 'nowhere' (I would say that, without remorse), an event which happened to be a Hot-Rod cars & motorcycles local festival. There, unexpectedly, we got to see the guy who built his unique motorbike e.g. from a pair of aircraft cylinders :O The Flying Millyard it is called, just stunning and unique on the world's scale:



And he was one of the bunch of people who also came along to show off and gaze at others motorbikes and cars :D Incredible.

Some pics from out there:




 


The honorable guest

 Royal Enfield from the...1944!
(spent 27 years in a barn before got recovered)


Pin-striping chap

Great artwork of the same pinstriping guy (yeah, they are hand saws ;) ):



For those not familiar with what pin-striping is click here for more reference. It needs a lot of practice and precision to have it handled well, Jędrek tries to learn it yet a bit inconsistently time-wise. 

Good stuff anyways!









Soon a bit more nature :)

Stay tuned! ^_^
