Distinguished Gentlemen's Ride - Oxford 2017
« on: Sep 25, 2017, 14:01:40 »
Oxford DGR was a blast, highest turnout outside of London we're told. Well organised, marshalls directing the convoy and all set out well. Generous primary meeting area, staging/catch up points and a midway break were all good.

Final destination was a pub with a mahoosive car park and extra beer servery laid on for the rush....still long queues but no issues.

Rendevous - Peartree services A34.



Sun was out...



Enroute...I'm in red trews, my lad in the brown suit.



Destination pub, The Victoria Arms in Marston, car park. Just a snap shot of 1/4 of the riders.



All in all a great day out.

Chatted to guys who run Herald bikes, from Northampton, who had been to London last year, but chose to attend Oxford which they preferred. I heard London DGR were fully subscribed and suggesting riders pick an out of town DGR.

It's a big thing over here with huge support. The Oxford ride was the largest outside of London, 450 bikes I'm told...wowser.

Here's a few more images that have filtered through the web.

Alongside me was an awesome XT500 thumping along and rattling my ribcage, lovely.


I look like a barrister on my way to court...



Through the old part of Oxford city...



I didn't mean for them to fuck off haha!



This military combo unit is owned by the father of my son's best friend and was easy to follow as well as gaining a lot of attention...



This one gives you some idea of the numbers, we were not at the front and the tail snaked way back.



Thanks for checking in....BCN?

Halfway through the welding and Iím now about average in terms of welding skills. But with a bit of dressing and a thick layer of powder coat itíll look good. Still to weld are the rear LH foot peg mount, seat mounting points and rear light bracket.
ForKs are rechromed, brake calliper rebuilt, waiting for wheels.

CJ250 Brat - well that's the plan!
