Sending this from the ferry halfway across the Irish Sea. Aye, Pete, good to meet you and have a chat. Great show overall again although the bike numbers were down this year. All the best.

Thanks from me too. Some interesting bikes and I like to see the Triumph 2000 - I had a later 2500S in the early 1980s and it was a great car with a lovely straight 6 engine.

I haven't been to that show for a very long time and the last time the bike section was quite small. Is it bigger these days, and what's the jumble like?

To be honest Ian, the bike bit is still quite small - 4 1/2 halls of cars and 1/2 Hall of bikes. I'd never pay the £40 plus £17 car parking to go personally, but I got free entry.! I did enjoy it though as I like classic cars as well as bikes. The jumble for bikes was non existent, just a couple of clothing and accessory traders.

Have to agree with Pete. The bike clubs that display do a great job in the time and effort put in to make it all happen. There are a couple of stalls with "motorcycle" clothing for sale, but it's more like fashion leather jackets, the stitching would probably burst if you fell off at a standstill at the traffic lights. ;D  The show is 90% about cars and the associated stuff that goes with that. I go because I like the vintage/classic cars, and the bikes are a bit of a bonus. It's definitely not worth the money going just for the bikes. The Stafford shows do that job for me.
