The 500 Triumph with yellow fairing and alloy tank- what's it say on the tank?

That's a real nice bike.

Yes, very nicely done and had a nice patina of use about it. It was featured in a magazine article about 3 years ago when it was forst built, but it was nice to see that it had been well used since.

Brilliant pictures. I couldn't imagine a cooler place to hold an event like that.
I'd be trying to get to the top of the banking too, go big or go home.
That Studebaker truck would be a rare bird in North America, in Europe, it might be the the one & only.

The only thing I don't like about pictures from events like this, is it shows just how poor my own work is. I try to assure myself that other people obviously have a way bigger budget to work with. But in truth, they probably have way more skill too.
Some amazing stuff there.

Definitely a cool location, and the event had a great atmosphere. The banking looks pretty intimidating but I'm tempted to return and have a go, I didn't realise this year that they'd accept more modern bikes in the sessions as all the pre-event details were in French, so a bit more complicated than my very basic, hello, please, thank-you efforts.

The phot's flatten it out and the guy on the Suzuki 1200 was the only guy holding it consistently, though a guy on an XR1200R was trying hard to get up there and hold it, but I just don't think the speed was there.

There was definitely some big budget bikes on show, but by far the majority were the result of hard work and a good eye than big $$$$.
