    So there it was ringing in my head, the Monday morning alarm, telling me it was time to get up for work, but oh no!, this time it was wrong, as you see it is a bank holiday over here. One of those odd bank holidays they throw in every now and then, normaly on an overcast, dank and miserable day, and this one was no different.

    Well when I say no different, I mean weather wise of course, but the day itself was special, for it was the Fleet Lions Charity ride day, held, would you believe in well, Fleet.

    So up and cleaned, the coffee was calling, but then so was my bike, not one of those old leaky, rusty, brit bikes, but a good solid leak free Japanese bike, my 1974 Kawasaki Z1b to be exact. So off to my lock up, open the door, keys in, fuel on, choke, and we are away for a coffee at the Gorge Cafe, one of Reading's oldes cafe's, and where I had arranged to meet a few friends for the ride over to fleet, but only after we had demolished a full english first. :lol3

    The ride over to Fleet was in itself an uneventful ride, but the weather was doing its best to annoy everybody, rain blowing in the wind, and a heavy grey sky, but hell we were having fun, and the bikes were all running great, and what an odd assortment we were, Two Harleys, a Pan and a Shovel, an Ariel rigid twinport, a Thunderbolt, an AJS 500 single, and my Z1b.

    And so we come to the end of another Lions club Rally, a great day spent with like minded people, and always good to catch up with a few old friends.

    And so I leave you with my bestest bike of the day, what a great looking little bike, I would have loved to take it home..:clap

    Always watch for England-Kev posts. Amazing pix from Brit biker gathers, and typically several types I have never seen before.

    Finally got all the pix to load. Just simply amazing assortment.
