Quatford Bikers Cafe near Bridgenorth

Post  Radar on Sun Feb 26 2012, 23:38

I have not felt like getting out much in the last couple of weeks but I was grateful to my old mates Thumper and Eddie who insisted I meet them up at my local bikers cafe for a traditional 'light-salad'

On a bright, spring like day the turn out of bikes was amazingly varied...

From here I will let the pics do the talking


The Fazer gets its' first outing for a while...only 23 miles but fun on a bike that is understated but hugely capable


Thumper and Eddie roll in on their GS and 1050 Tiger respectively


Sweet 848 and purposeful Supemoto Ducatis


Thumper got chatting with this cahp who arrived on Villiers powered James Commodore...he could call it Lionel...he was a Commodore...I will get me coat!


Well worn Ariel looked like it could tell a few good stories


Beauty and the Beast. A Superdream and a TZR250...I will let you work out which one is which...


Immaculate MZ...they weren't this tidy when new!


Tidy Triumph keeps a FJ1200 company


Loads of Harleys about all weekend


Closer look at that delightful TZR250,140kg and 50bhp of pure two-stroke fun...my favourite bike there


Such a shame that Harley pulled the plug on these interesting sports bikes


The proud AJS brand is now used to peddle Chinese built 125s. A Franceis Barnett snears in the back ground...we used to have a empire you know!


Thundercat in an interesting colour...


Bit of late 80's GSXR action for you...


Suzuki 250X7...100mph 250


Compulsory GT750. This one seemed absolutely perfect


Hard to believe the stunning MV f4 is now 12 years old!


This LC came in with the X7, it could of been 1980 all over again!


Proper trial bike,good job it wasn't windy it would of blown away it was so light!


Thumper and Edd mount up for the short run back to Brum

I only did 23 miles, but I really enjoyed myself. Cheers for dragging me out lads!

I didn't have any with me! There were four thundercats there too.

My Thundercat is still awaiting MOT in readiness for the wee-mac

I did a Buell day at Mallory the other year and got to try the whole range out on track, I fell in love with this Lightening, not the fastest thing but the SS (short arse version) which is shorter and lower sure could nip through the bends on the track, you could catch people up through the bends and around the hairpin and then pull over to the left after the bus stop and let them all overtake you on the straight, then catch them up in the corners again halfway around the track.

Did a little write up here [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] if you are interested

Great bike, pity they are american made and therefore the whole of them is made out of a softer cheese than Suzuki and Yamaha bolts and prone to un reliability and things falling off them. However, I would deffo still have one as an additional bike for scratching but wouldn't want it as a main bike and deffo not for touring

Mate's got a Buell Lightning, he took it to Assen last year and is doing so again this year, I think he's just trying to justify buying one brand new!!
