Return of the "LARDIES" - 8 July 2015

Congratulations to the “LARDIES”

To the great credit of the team and their mechanical expertise all three Reliant Robins of 1990's vintage (Thunderpigs 1 , 2 and 3) and the 1960's Norton motorbike with tradesman's box sidecar arrived back just after 6.30 p.m. on the 4th of  July. Unfortunately the 2004 Indian built Royal Enfield motorbike with original 1949 passenger sidecar suffered a puncture on the last day. As the tyre was beyond repair they had to be taken back 100 miles to get a new tyre fitted. This was the nearest place that had the correct tyre. This meant that they missed their ferry but luckily were able to get a place on a later ferry and they arrived at The Moon and Stars at 10.15 on the same day as the rest of the team.

There are plans afoot to have a celebration in the village hall on 13th August when you can hear some more of their stories and some of their wonderful photographs they have taken.

I have seen some of their photos and heard some of their stories and can’t wait to see and hear more.
